Listserv

The Office of Sustainability listserv allows the AU community to share information about sustainability events, initiatives, and opportunities on campus and throughout DC via an e-mail listserv. Below are instructions on how to subscribe, post, manage your subscription, and unsubscribe.

Subscribe | Posting | Suspend Messages | Individual Messages vs. Digest | Web Interface | Unsubscribe

Subscribe

Send the following e-mail message to listserv@listserv.american.edu:

Subscribe AUSUSTAINABILITY-L Full Name (Full Name should be your first and last name.)

You will receive an automatic confirmation message in your e-mail account soon afterwards, and will immediately begin receiving postings in your e-mail account.

Note: Commands such as subscriptions request must be sent in plain text. If your e-mail client does not allow you to send messages in plain text, use the Web interface described below to subscribe and set subscription options. Once you have subscribed, you can send messages in other formats such as HTML.

Web Interface

If you are connecting to the Web interface for the first time, you will be asked to login. If you have never logged into the listserv interface from any computer, click the link to GET A NEW LISTSERV PASSWORD. Listserv user names are all e-mail addresses. You must enter your e-mail address as it appears on outgoing Internet mail (jdoe@american.edu, jd1234a@student.american.edu, or jane.doe@student.american.edu depending on how your account was configured to send outgoing messages). New passwords will need to be confirmed via e-mail. 

If you already know your password, simply enter it along with your e-mail address and click LOGIN. Once you login, the server will set a cookie on your browser that will login automatically for you. If you are using someone else's computer, you should use the button to LOGIN WITHOUT SETTING A COOKIE.
