Things to know about the email lists

  1. With some exceptions, we do not add you to a list without your permission.  The bottom of emails to the lists has a link to unsubscribe.

  2. There is no way for us to know that your e-mail has changed. Please send an e-mail to the list administrator and we'll change it.  Do not a send a message to the list.

  3. When replying, please make sure you are replying to the person who posted.  Please do NOT "reply all."  

  4. We are required by the University to encourage civil discourse among members of the lists. The list administrators have the right to remove anyone who does not cooperate

  5. Please do not send calendar items to any listservs.  

How a Listserv works at UMass

Each of our lists is a very long list of e-mail addresses entered in alphabetical order. Each list is given an address much like our own UMass e-mail addresses. When you send a message to the list, the UMass server sends the message to all recipients on that list. It's not much different than just sending an e-mail to an individual.

Listservs are managed by IT at UMass. The system will accept bounce backs for full mailboxes and other issues for about one week and then it will delete your e-mail address from the list. It is possible to remove your name for periods of time that you're gone. In this case e-mail the administrator and we will make arrangements.

There is a digest option for all lists. The digest option sends your messages from the list once per day in one e-mail. Contact the listserv administrator if you'd like to use the digest option.
