To request a new list, send email to newlist@uakron.edu . You should include:

1. The name of the list, usually, something-something@lists.uakron.edu The “-” in the name is a convention of the lists. Do not include space, special characters, or uppercase letters.

2. A title for the list to help identify it. Ex. “UA Webteam Update List”

3. Names and email addresses of the owners. These indivduals will be able to send to the list and to modify the list membership as needed. For Broadcast/Newsletter lists, these are the only valid senders.

4. Format. Primarily these are Broadcast or Discussion. More information on List Formats

If you have a spreadsheet of member email addresses and (optionally) names, send those along with the list set-up information to be bulk loaded into the list.
