How to Subscribe / Unsubscribe from Lists in ListServ

Tags how-to public


Following these steps will add or remove you from a mailing list in the ListServ service.



Before You Begin

Check out the “Subscriber’s Corner” on the MSU Listserv site to see your own subscribed lists.  You’ll find that mailing lists are a major form of collaboration at MSU.


Subscribing to a List

To subscribe to a list hosted on MSU Listserv, email and include the following command line in the body of the message (not the Subject):

SUBSCRIBE listname

Unsubscribing From a List

Use one of the following methods:

  • Send an email to the address (replace LISTSERV_NAME with the name of the listserv). 
  • Email and include the following command line in the body of the message:
    • UNSUBSCRIBE listname
  • Log in to the MSU Listserv “Subscriber’s Corner” and identify the list(s) that you wish to leave:
    1. Log into MSU Listserv. (Set a password if this is the first time logging in.)
    2. Select the Subscriber's Corner
    3. Select the list(s) you want to unsubscribe from.
    4. Select the drop-down menu at the bottom of the page and choose Unsubscribe.
    5. Select Submit

Additional Info

  • Sometimes the methods above do not work.  If you are having trouble, please contact the owner or sponsor of the list.
  • Please do NOT send unsubscribe requests to the list’s “reply-to” address.  Doing so results in not being removed from the list and causes everyone on the list to see your message.
