Listserv Mailing Lists
Mailing lists disseminate a single email message simultaneously to a group of recipients. They can be used to distribute newsletters or announcements, as an open forum, or as a private discussion group. Mailing lists at the University of Guelph are managed by L-Soft's LISTSERV™ mailing list management software.
