Mailing List Management

When you want to send email to a pre-defined list of email address, but find that a local address book is too restrictive and can not be shared, you can use a mailing list. Mailing lists are also helpful when more than one person is expected to answer email addressed to a group of users. This service is offered to CoE departments free of charge.

Features and Functions

  • Web based list administration.
  • Web based subscribing, unsubscribing, and user configuration management.
  • Per-list privacy features, such as closed-subscriptions, private archives, private membership rosters, and sender/receiver-based posting restrictions.
  • Built-in web-based archiving.
  • Multiple list owners and moderators.
  • To request a mailing list, send email to "help@engineering.ucsb.edu" and provide the following information:
    • The desired name of the list.
    • The email address of the list administrator.
    • If you want messages archived and, if so, should the archives be public or private.
    • Who should be allowed to send unmoderated email to the list (only list members, anyone, etc.).
