How do I create a listserv?
Explains how someone can create their own listserv
UIC faculty, staff and students can use the Listserv Creation Form to create new lists. The list will be created immediately; its email address will be email@example.com, where listname is the name you selected for the list. The additional email alias firstname.lastname@example.org will be created instantly as well, although this is only an alias that routes email to email@example.com.
Do you want Listserv to keep an archive of you listserv list's email? Please request this on the form when you request your list. It is very much easier to do at list creation than to add it later. (And you may have messages missing from your archive.)
