About IU List

On this page:


Overview

IU List is Indiana University's mailing list service, based on the Sympa mailing list software. Through IU List, you can manage mailing lists of large numbers of subscribers with customizable settings, create digests of messages, and maintain archives of past communications.

For instructions on how to create a new IU List mailing list, see Create an IU List mailing list.

Important:
From February 7 through April 2021, UITS will upgrade the IU List service. During this process, lists will be migrated to a temporary pilot domain based on the campus with which the list is associated. For more, see About the 2021 IU List upgrade.

Manage or subscribe to IU List mailing lists

Use the IU List web interface

You can use the IU List web interface to manage your mailing lists and subscriptions. From the links below, choose the site associated with the campus that hosts your mailing list (not necessarily your campus). Each campus site lets you manage only those lists that are hosted by that campus; a separate site is provided for managing university-wide (@iu.edu and @list.iu.edu) mailing lists.

Campus IU List web interface
IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
IU East https://list.iue.edu/
IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
Note:
During the pilot phase of the IU List upgrade, the URLs above will redirect to a corresponding pilot domain URL in the format https://pilot.list.campus.edu. These pilot URLs are temporary; the URLs above will continue to work throughout and following the migration.

You can log into the IU List web interface either with your University account, or with any other email address and an IU List password. If you need to use a separate IU List password, and you've not yet created one, see Set, change, or reset your IU List password.

Important:
The 2021 IU List upgrade did not migrate IU List passwords you had previously set. If you need or want to keep using a separate password, you'll need to set up a password again following the migration of your campus domain. See Set, change, or reset your IU List password.

If your list has been migrated to the pilot domain, use the first set of instructions below.

You'll know your list has been migrated to the pilot environment if the webpage looks like the following screenshot, and the web address is in the form pilot.list.campus.edu.

  • Primary IU email address:
    • New web interface (pilot domain): On the appropriate IU List site (see above), in the upper right, click IU Login. If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
    • Old web interface: On the appropriate IU List site (see above), click IU Credential Login. If prompted, log in with your IU username and passphrase.
  • Alternative email address:
    • New web interface (pilot domain): On the appropriate IU List site (see above), in the upper right, click Login locally. Log in with your email address and (new or reset) IU List password.
    • Old web interface: On the appropriate IU List site (see above), under "Log in with your IU List password", enter your email address and IU List password, and then click Email/Password Login.

For more about managing your IU List lists and subscriptions. see the "Related documents" at the bottom of this page.
