This is intended as a basic intro to using the Texas A&M ListServ® system.
In order to manage listervs at Texas A&M, you must set up an account with the University ListServ system. Listserv.tamu.edu Click on Manage Your Lists Click on get a new LISTSERV password Follow the instructions to set up an account
List Dashboard: The drop down menu that allows you to select the list you want to manage Subscriber Management: the page that allows you to manage who is a member of the list
Bulk Operations: allows you to add members from a text file This is how I recommend you add users, I recommend creating your list in Excel, saving it as a *.txt and upload it that way
Attachments are tricky with the TAMU ListServ® system DO NOT SEND ANYTHING OVER 5Mb in size to any Corps list! If a larger attachment is necessary either setup and FTP, upload it to your outfit webpage, or have us put it on Cadets in a special protected folder Due to the size of our system and the number of subscribers, it could take WEEKS to send a message with an attachment over 5Mb
Everything else on the system should have already been set up, but if you feel the need to modify or change any of the ListServ® settings the university has pretty good documentation on how to go about it If you need any more specific help, or want to become an expert on the subject of ListServs® contact Michael Crocker at CIS and he will be happy to give you a full course on the TAMU ListServ® system
