Sending Emails to a Listerv

Last modified 3/6/2024

Emails can be created, configured, and sent to a Listserv from within the Listserv application (found here: Listserv), but this is not the recommended method. Using Outlook to send these emails is more manageable and preferred. To send an email to a Listserv using Outlook, please follow the instructions below.

  1. Open your preferred version of Outlook (Web or App).
  2. Start a new email by clicking the New mail button in the upper left corner (Figure 1).

  3. In the To field, type the name of the Listserv you wish to send to and select it (Figure 2).

  4. Compose your message and hit Send.
  5. You have successfully sent an email to your selected Listserv from Outlook.
