Lists Not Maintained by IT

Lists with Closed Subscription

Some lists are NOT maintained by IT; to subscribe to or unsubscribe from non-IT lists with closed subscription services, you must contact the respective list owners. If you don't know who manages the list, send an email to with the name of the list you are trying to unsubscribe from and the Mailing List team will check the ownership for you.

If no list name is associated with the email, forward the email to us at and we will assist you in tracking down your subscription. Not all emails come through ListServ lists, and some might be manually maintained outside our system.
