How to use List Serves

Using List Serves at Nazareth College
A list serve is a way to send an e-mail message, using a single address, to many recipients at once. You must know the name of the list serve you would like to use before you can be added to the list.

Subscribing to a List Serve
To add your e-mail address to a list serve, you will need to "subscribe" to the list.

  1. Send an e-mail message to majordomo@naz.edu with the following text in the message body: subscribe list_name (where "list_name" is the actual name of the list, for example "ArtClass@naz.edu")
  2. Do not put any text in the "Subject:" line

Sending a Message Using a List Serve

To send an e-mail message to everyone on a list:

  1. Be sure you have already subscribed to the list.
  2. Address your e-mail message to list_name@naz.edu (where "list_name" is the actual name of the list).
  3. Create the message as you would any other message, filling in the cc:, Subject:, and message body, if appropriate.
  4. When you send the message, it will be distributed to everyone who has subscribed to that particular list.

Unsubscribing From a List Serve

If you no longer want to receive messages or send messages via a particular list serve, you can remove yourself from the list using "unsubscribe".

  1. Send an e-mail message to majordomo@naz.edu with the following text in the message body: unsubscribe list_name (where "list-name" is the actual name of the list)
  2. Your e-mail address will be removed from the list serve
