Guide to ListServ Class Lists

Your requested class list has been created and is ready to use. Now what?

Automatic List Updating

All ListServ class lists are configured to update automatically. Thus, any students who add or drop the class will be subscribed and unsubscribed from the list by the system. No need to worry about keeping it up-to-date!

Emailing the Class

Once your class list has been created, you can begin emailing your class right away. Here's how to use the list:

  1. Compose a new email message.
  2. Address the message to you list's email (ex. abc123-001-201125@lists.drexel.edu).
  3. Type your subject and message as usual.
  4. Click "Send."

It's that simple!

If you list was configured to require confirmation, before your message is sent to you class, ListServ will respond with a confirmation request. Simply click the link provided to confirm your message. Your message will then be distributed to the class list.

Note: Regarding the format of the list's email address, "abc123" is the course number, "001" is the section number, and "201125" is the course term. Yours will match the class it was requested for.

Checking the Roster

Not sure if a student is subscribed to your class list? One way to check who is or isn't subscribed to the class list is to view the class roster for the course at Photo Class List (http://www.drexel.edu/classlist). Whoever appears in the list of registered students for the course is included in the class email list.

Subscribing Other Individuals

Need to subscribe a TA or a student's personal email address to the class list? Any email address can be subscribed directly to the class list. However, any addresses manually subscribed to the class list will not be automatically updated.

If you need to have an address subscribed or removed from a class list, please let us know at mailreq@drexel.edu.

Please also let us know if you have any questions by contacting us.
