Using Listserv to Send Email to Groups of People

Learn how to, create, manage and control electronic mailing lists at UB.

How Listservs Work

Each member subscribed to a particular mailing list receives a copy of every message sent to that list via email. Listservs are email-based and can function as announcement platforms, moderated lists or discussions lists.

You can use a listserv to send email to an entire class, using just the address for the listserv list.

Using the Listserv Web Interface
