A list can be used as a contact address that directs mail to one or more individuals who handle inquiries for a larger entity, or as a distribution list to communicate with a larger group. CUIT provides mailing lists for Columbia departments and recognized clubs.
Simple Mailing Lists
Managed Mailing Lists
Managed mailing lists provide more features than simple lists, such as subscribe/unsubscribe functions, archiving, and moderation. Lists are run using the Mailman software package and owners can use a web page interface to do list management. The Listserv software packages is currently supported, but all lists will be moved to Mailman. Once CUIT creates a managed list for you, you will be able to manage a number of features yourself.
How to Create a Mailing List
You can submit a request to have a mailing list created for you. Please keep in mind that all fields, except those specifically marked as optional, are required. The proposed name will be on the address for the mailing list. Also, please note that you must state a clear purpose for the mailing list, and the request must be for a Columbia department or recognized club.
