Mailing lists (also called Listservs) make it easy to send email to multiple recipients while sending the message only to one specific address. This allows all the individuals in your campus group or organization to easily communicate with each other using a centralized list of email addresses.

New mailing lists can be created at the request of a member of the Auburn University community as long as the purpose is

To request the creation of a mailing list:

Editing an Existing Mailing List:

Remove yourself from a list:

  • Mailman Users
  • Majordomo Users
    • To unsubscribe from a list on the majordomo server, send an email to with a blank subject line and "unsubscribe listname email@address" (where listname is the name of the list you want to unsubscribe to and email@address is your email address that is receiving emails from the list) in the body of the email.  

      Note: To unsubscribe from a listproc list, you MUST send the unsubscribe command from the email account that receives the mail from the list.

      For example, to unsubscribe from the itnews list, send the following command to the address
