Mailing List / Listserv

Mailing list/listserv services are provided through the use of the GNU Mailman software package. There is a web-based administrative interface for list administrators. Lists can be moderated or unmoderated. All e-mail going to the lists are scanned for viruses and spam prior to delivery. List members can self-register or be administrator-added, depending on the list configuration.

New lists may only be requested by full-time faculty/staff, and must support the mission of the University.*

To set up a mailing list (listserv), email a request for a New Mailing List, and include the following information:

  • The Name that you would like the list to have:
    • Should conform to internet email standards, containing only letters, numbers, and dashes or underscores.

  • The email address(es) of the owner(s):
    • The owner(s) email address(es) must be in the fsu.edu domain.
