On IU List, to what email address should I send mailings?

To send mailings to a mailing list, you should use the address associated with that list, such as mylistname-l@indiana.edu or our_discussion-l@iue.edu. These mailings might or might not appear instantly on the mailing list, depending on the list settings: A moderator might need to approve the mailing, or you might need to confirm a return mailing from IU List as an anti-spam measure; some lists only allow the list owner to post, or have special settings that do not allow anyone to submit mailings.

Each list also has several special addresses associated with it. For a list listname-l, these addresses are:

  • listname-l-subscribe@campus.edu: Use this address to subscribe to the list.
  • listname-l-unsubscribe@campus.edu: Use this address to unsubscribe from the list.
  • listname-l-owner@campus.edu: This address is used by the mailing list to send messages out, and to harvest bounced messages. Do not send mailings to this address.
  • listname-l-request@campus.edu: Mail sent to this address will be forwarded to the list owner. Use this address to make requests of the owner.
  • listname-l-editor@campus.edu: Mail sent to this address will go to the moderators of the list, if a separate moderator exists on that list.
