Email Lists or Listservs

A listserv is a mailing list that facilitates the distribution of email postings from one person to all persons subscribed to a list. When sending out email to large numbers of people, listservs are needed due to limitations of the number of people you can send emails to using NKU email.

Lists can be established by faculty and staff for university or research related purposes. Student lists can be created at the request of the faculty or staff advisor, or the student life office. Each list has an email address, such as: mylist-l@listserv.nku.edu. Emails sent to a list email address are distributed to the subscribers of the list.

 

These list are controlled by the owner of the list and need to have the email approved by the administrator of the list in order to send.

 

For NKU-ALL (Student/Faculty/Staff) type listserv's, these are controlled by the VP's of the university. If a person needs to or would like to send something via an NKU All list, they will need to work with their VP's and have them approve the message.
