Mailman (Mailing Lists)

" "

Pitt Information Technology provides a software program called Mailman to manage electronic mailing lists. A mailing list is a list of addresses to which the same information is being sent. Two popular types of mailing lists are announcements and discussions. Announcement lists enable one person or group to send announcements to an assigned group. Discussion lists allow a group to discuss topics amongst themselves.

Departments can also create Exchange groups that can be used for mailing lists. Only individuals with a University Computing Account can be members of an Exchange group.
