Posting guidelines

Below are some simple guidelines for posting in any University Research listservs:

  • Be sure to include a descriptive subject line. E-mails received with no subject line may likely be perceived as spam by an e-mail filter and be deleted before reaching the recipient's inbox.
  • Responses to many listserv questions and discussion topics are of interest to the entire list. In these cases, it is appropriate to reply to the listserv address.
  • Personal replies should be directed to specific individuals rather than to the entire list. Remember to cut and paste the sender's e-mail address when replying rather than simply hitting the "Reply" button which sends the response to the entire list. Replies like "Thanks," "Yes" or "No" should be sent as a personal message and not to the listserv.
  • University Research listservs may not be used for the solicitation, promotion, or sales of commercial products or services. Violators will be immediately removed from the listserv(s).
  • Be respectful and considerate of your colleagues in your postings. If you disagree or become upset with someone's response or use of the list, reply to that person directly when appropriate. Any post that contains defamatory, abusive, profane, threatening, offensive or illegal language or materials will be removed immediately. The violator will be removed from the listserv(s) and will be reported to the appropriate authorities.
  • Do not post anything you do not want the world to see. All posts are archived by UMMC indefinitely.
  • If the amount of mail from any particular list becomes cumbersome, rather than leaving that list, consider receiving the digest form of the list. Instead of getting each e-mail individually, you will receive a summary e-mail at the end of each day or week. Individual subscribers need to request this function directly for each listserv to which they are subscribed
  • To set up "digest" mode, from the e-mail address used to subscribe to the listserv list(s), send an e-mail to listserv@listserv.umc.edu using the following command format in the body of the message (where listname is the list's ID):
