I have requested the creation of a listserv for my summer course and saw the confirmation on the screen that it had been requested. I guess my question now is where do I find the list? BAM
You can send messages to your list immediately by using your regular email program. Send your message to summer-xxxx-L@lists.ufl.edu where xxxx is your class section number.
A copy will go to everyone on the list except the person who posted the message. The default behavior is that listserv assumes the sender's mail program will save a copy for him/her.
Classroom lists are set up to require that all messages be approved and confirmed by an editor -- you. This is so that you have complete control over what gets posted -- no swap meets, squabbles, or spam. You can change this if you wish but you will open doors to spammers.
Classroom lists are updated automatically overnight against official classroom rolls. You will not have to add and delete students as their status changes. You can add yourself as a list member and you can add or delete other addresses not on the class rolls.
If one of your students does not show up on your list, you may need to send him/her to the Registrar's office to check the status of his/her registration. Anyone who is on the class roll for your class will be added to your list. Not showing up can imply a registration issue.
When you send listserv commands, send them to email@example.com where the listserv software can recognize and execute them. When you have questions about managing a list, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can perform many list management activities from our web interface at lists.ufl.edu. You can read instructions for many common list-maintenance tasks at http://docweb.cns.ufl.edu/docs/d0215/d0215.html .
