Mailing Lists (ListServ)

ListServ is Concordia's new electronic mailing list software, replacing Majordomo. It allows a sender to send one email to the list, which will be distributed to many individuals (subscribers to that list).

There are new features that were not available with Majordomo, such as:

  • List owner can now manage subscribers (add/remove/mass subscription) of their list via the Web interface
  • List owner can compose (text/html) and send to their list via the Web interface
  • List owner can authenticate using their Concordia Exchange email address and password
  • A list can have multiple list owners (each list owner must have a valid Exchange email account)
  • List subscribers can authenticate using their Concordia Exchange email address and password then manage their subscription

Who can use it?

Faculty, staff, and graduate students who have a valid Exchange email account.

How much does it cost?
