Mailing Lists

This document provides a basic explanation of mailing lists and how to request them.

Mailing lists

Mailing lists at UW Oshkosh are controlled by mailing list management software called GNU Mailman. This software allows list owners to control settings and manage user subscriptions for their list. Users may also interact with Mailman to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists. All interaction can be done through the web-based interface provided by the Mailman software.
