What is an eMail List / Listserv?

An electronic mailing list or email listserv is a special usage of email that allows for widespread distribution of information to many Internet users. It is similar to a traditional mailing list — a list of names and addresses — as might be kept by an organization for sending publications to its members or customers, but typically refers to three things:

  • a list of email addresses of people who are interested in a topic,
  • the people (“subscribers”) receiving mail at those addresses,
  • the publications (email messages) sent to those addresses.

Electronic mailing lists use special mailing list software from which messages are distributed to all email addresses subscribed to the mailing list.

Subscribers can send commands to the server to perform such tasks as subscribing and unsubscribing, temporarily halting the sending of messages to them, or changing available preferences. Some list servers also allow people to subscribe, unsubscribe and change preferences through a web-based interface.

Some listservs allow discussions back and forth among the people “subscribed” to it, and some don’t. ALL listservs at UUCE are provided at no charge, and most are open to both members and friends. On discussion lists, there are Netiquette Guidelines.

– An email address and a listserv both use the ‘@’ sign

– Websites use the ‘http’ and/or ‘www’ indicator

Websites are sort of like going to the library and looking in a book.  A webSITE usually has different “chapters and pages” for different information. The “book” for the church is called www.uueugene.org, and it has various “pages”.  

On each of those pages, clicking on the “Menu” either takes you to the intended page, or shows you more menu choices in that category. Use HOME to return to the beginning/start over.  Use the Back Arrow on your computer screen to back up a page or two or three.  If this does not make sense, the WebTeam at UUCE can hold tutorials or classes for you, depending on how many folks would like to attend. Put your name on the roster in a note to webteam@uueugene.org.

In the larger UU world, the UUA [Unitarian Universalist Association] sponsors over 300 mailing lists where members with similar interests or committees in their churches share questions and possible solutions. Participation is free.
