Request a Mailing List

There are three types of group mailing lists that are available:
  • Office 365 Distribution List
  • Listserv List
  • Office 365 Group

Office 365 Distribution List

An Office 365 Distribution List provides an easy way to send email messages to a group of people within the Dartmouth Community. Here are some things to know about an Office 365 Distribution List:

  • The use of a specific group list list can be restricted to specific people, people only on the list or all of the Dartmouth Community.
  • An Office 365 Distribution List will have an address of @cloud.dartmouth.edu.
  • There needs to be 2 "owners" of an Office 365 Distribution List who will maintain the list membership and options.

Listserv List

A Listserv list provides a way to send email messages to a group of people within and outside of the Dartmouth Community. The messages can be a one-way communication in the form of an announcement list, or a back and forth communication in the form of a discussion list. Here are some things to know about a Listserv List:

  • A Listserv list is used when the number of subscribers is potentially large (over 1,000) or widely distributed geographically,
  • Every Listserv list, hosted at Dartmouth, must have an owner with a valid Dartmouth account.
  • A Listserv list will have an address of @listserv.dartmouth.edu
  • A Listserv list is used when the subscribers of the list contains non-Dartmouth.edu addresses.
  • A ListServ list can be managed with a web based interface or by sending commands to the list via email.
  • Postings to a Listserv list can be collected and saved in an archive.

Office 365 Group

An Office 365 Group provides a self-service alternative to an Office 365 Distribution List or a Listserv list. Here are some things to know about O365 groups:

  • You can find and create groups in the Outlook section of your Dartmouth email account at BWA.dartmouth.edu. If you create a group, you will be the owner of the group and can control it's membership.
  • An O365 group will have an address of @groups.dartmouth.edu.
  • O365 groups include an email conversation, which works like a group mailing list, shared file storage, and shared notebook.
