Subscribing to a Discussion Group List

The majority of listserv discussion group lists are private or closed, as opposed to public or open lists where anyone can subscribe, so the list owner controls subscriptions to the lists. To subscribe to a list:

  • address e-mail to listserv@list.pace.edu and include the command: Subscribe listname Firstname Lastname, where listname is the name of the discussion list and Firstname and Lastname are your full name
  • open lists respond indicating you have been subscribed to the discussion list
  • closed lists notify you that your subscription is denied

As part of an initiative to reduce paper consumption, it is recommended you utilize discussion lists for your group correspondence.
