Request a Public Distribution List

  • A public distribution list has these features:

    • The list owner subscribes and unsubscribes members of the list.
    • Anyone can send a message to the list (called posting).
    • Messages sent to the list cannot be more than 2mb in size.
    • There are no digest or index modes and no archiving options.

    If this is the type of list you wish to request, follow these steps:

    1. In the Request Form below, you will be prompted for the information regarding the list, starting with List Name. List Name must follow these rules: 
      • Must contain at least one dash (or hyphen)
      • Must be a minimum of three but no more than 40 characters long
      • Must begin with a letter
      • Must end with a letter or number
