LISTSERV is an industry standard email list application which can host lists facilitating discussions (both moderated and un-moderated), announcements, or mixed usage.  List memberships can be as small as a few people up to several thousand.  Management can be shared among multiple individuals as can moderation.  In some situations, membership can be dynamically managed based on UWRF directory information.


  • Sending emails through a LISTSERV allows you to send an email to multiple people without having to type each individual email address for every email you send
  • Replying to emails is easier because replying to a LISTSERV sends a copy of the reply to everyone on the list
  • You and add/remove members to/from your group through email or through the list management webpage
