New Mailing List

An e-mail distribution list that is used to facilitate group discussion or as a means of distributing announcement to a large number of addresses. Unlike a shared e-mail address, messages sent to a mailing list address are not delivered to a central location, but are instead delivered to each individual e-mail address that is a member of the list.

This form is used to request the creation of a new mailing list.  The e-mail address for the list is limited to 10 alphanumeric characters with no spaces. The string "-list" will be appended to the requested list name in order to identify this e-mail address as a list. For example, requesting a list name of "MyList" will result in a list e-mail address of "".
