To own a mailing list, you must have an email address in the utexas.edu domain. If you have an appropriate email address:

  1. Log on to UT Lists and select Create List.
  2. Enter the name you want for the list. List names must follow these rules:
    • List names must be all lowercase.
    • The first character of the list name must be a letter or number.
    • The rest of the list name can contain letters, numbers, dashes (-), periods (.), plus signs (+), and underscores ( _ ).
    • The list name cannot have spaces.
  3. Choose the list type most appropriate for your type of list (types listed below).
  4. Enter the Subject of the list, and choose an appropriate Audience for the list.
  5. Add a short description of your list, and then click Submit your creation request

Choosing A List Type

List types are initial templates for your mailing list's settings. When choosing a list type, first consider questions such as:

  • who should be able to send messages to the list
  • who should be able to subscribe to the list
  • who should be able to access the list's archives
  • who should be able to see the list in the list-of-lists page
  • other convenience options such as where replies should be sent

Also remember: these list types are starting points. You can modify the settings of a list after you create it.
