Listserve Commands


If you haven’t noticed, we tend to use list-serves quite a bit around here. Here’s how to add (and remove) yourself from a list-serve, so you don’t end up spamming everyone with requests. (You might only be able to do this from your BU e-mail, but I really don’t know.)


List-serves are all run by The way it works is that you e-mail commands in the body of the e-mail to majordomo, and it carries them out. Anything in the subject line is ignored, so don’t worry about including one.

Subscribing to a List Send an e-mail to: with the following command in the body of the e-mail:

subscribe <list-serve address> <your e-mail address>

(The carats (< & >) here are just used to indicate where you put the respective addresses, so don’t put them in your real message. See the examples if you’re still confused.)

Unsubscribing to a List Send an e-mail to: with the following command in the body of the e-mail:

unsubscribe <list-serve address> <your e-mail address>



Subject: (no subject)

Body: subscribe awesome-dudes-list
