Mailing Lists with LISTSERV

Service Description

LISTSERV is a web-based mailing list application. You must have a Vanderbilt email address to request this service. Mailing lists allow you to send the same message to all intended recipients at once. LISTSERV mailing lists differ from Microsoft distribution lists because they allow you to include any valid Internet email address, not just the email addresses of people in your organization. For more detailed information about LISTSERV functionality, visit this website.

Mailing list services are available to Vanderbilt University faculty, staff, and students.
