Mailing Lists Tools

Mailing lists are a collection of names and addresses used by an individual or an organization to send material to multiple recipents. Mailing lists can also be used as department or project related alias. In combination with filters and folders, mailing lists can help individuals organize their e-mail based on the many tasks or roles they perform. Furthermore the use of shared folders allows for the delegation of tasks within a group while at the same time maintaining a consistent initial point of contact.

List Guardian

List Guardian is a public mailing list management tool developed by ITS. Access to Western mailing lists is restricted to Western authentication.

Please Note: There are gaps in the processing of spam content addressed to mailing lists. Messages that are identified as spam are not currently trapped but are still tagged with [Spam?] in the left hand margin of the subject line. Any messages sent to mailing lists that are going undetected as spam would require the list owner to set posting restrictions.
