For SIU List Owners ONLY: 

The listserv was recently upgraded to 16.0. All lists should function without any special intervention by the list owner. You should be able to send email to your list and send commands to listserv via email as in the past. If you wish to look around at the new web interface, the url is:  http://listserv.siu.edu/scripts/wa.exe

New list creating procedure: 

  1. Go to the Listserv Request Page and download the request form. 
  2. Once the form has been downloaded to your computer, open it in Adobe Reader and fill it out. Attach and e-mail the completed form to: list-request@siu.edu

After the form has been recieved and processed by LISTSERV admin staff at Information Technology, an email will be sent to you.
