Choose the address with which you want to subscribe to the list.
When using the address that is listed as your official University address, you will be able to log in to the Email Lists website with your NetID and password. If you use a different address, you will have to create a separate login to manage subscriptions for that address on the website.
Send an email to email@example.com from the address you want to use. This is not a person but a mailing list management system, so messages should only contain commands.
- In the subject line of your email, type in: subscribe listname Firstname Lastname (replace listname with the name of the list you want to subscribe to and indicate your own first name and last name).
- Leave the message body blank. Delete or turn off any automatic signature.
After this, you will receive a message telling you whether your request was accepted or not. If the subscription to the list is subject to any approval, the list owner may choose not to subscribe you. You can send a message directly to the list owner (firstname.lastname@example.org) to explain why you really want to subscribe to the list.
You may be asked to confirm your subscription request before it can be processed. If so, please follow the instructions contained in the message you receive.
According to the type of list (list with subscription subject to conditions or not) and to the availability of the list owner, you may not receive the notice immediately. Do not send multiple requests.
If your request is accepted, the message you receive confirms your subscription to the list. We advise you to keep all your subscription notices to mailing lists.
