ListServ List Manager's Survival Guide

List management is the responsibility of the list owner (exceptions apply). Please review the information in this guide to learn more about how to manage and use a ListServ list.

The "list name" will usually be in the format listname-l. The "list address" is the email address for your list, in the format listname-l@lists.drexel.edu. These two elements will be very important to keep track of, as all list management functions and list uses will depend on them.

Creating Your Login

To create your login at https://lists.drexel.edu, click "Login" > "Get a new ListServ password." For your username, use the exact format of the email address that owns your lists. Don't use a password tied to ANY secure account; create one you will only use with ListServ.

Once you click "Register Password," ListServ will send you a confirmation request via email. Open the email, and click the link provided to set your password. You can now login to view your lists.

Managing Your List

List owners are assigned ownership of their ListServ lists via their specified email addresses. List management itself includes:

  • Setting up or resetting a ListServ login password
  • Adding and/or deleting subscribers
  • Reviewing a list's subscribers

All ListServ lists can be managed via the Web Interface at http://lists.drexel.edu.

To get started with your lists, see Using the Web Interface.
