You can use the web interface or compose a message in your email software. 

  1. Log in to the web interface with the email account you set up to access LISTSERV. Click on the EmailLists pull down menu.
  2. Under List Name, click on the list’s name to which you wish to send a message.

You can also use email to send a message to everyone subscribed to the list. 

  1. Compose a message to listname-L@listserv.utoronto.ca, where “listname” is the name of the list. For example, if the name of the list is CHEM230-L, type: CHEM230-L@listserv.utoronto.ca in the “To” field in your email message.

If you are experiencing difficulty running the list or have other concerns related to the list, you should contact the IC Listmaster at:
listmaster@utoronto.ca

Your subscribers are your responsibility. If one of your subscribers is having a problem, do not send them directly to the IC Listmaster.
