You can set up a Cambridge-based mailing list yourself without help from a Computer Officer. Your list's email address will typically be of the form (or statslab, dpmms or damtp).

Once you have created your list, staff can use the role email addresses form to set up a friendly alias for it e.g. Students should email help@maths if they require an @maths alias for their list.

UK academic mailing lists are handled by jiscmail. Jiscmail run a listserv which among other features allow subscribers to unsubscribe/subscribe themselves similiar to the University's mailman. To use jiscmail your list must meet certain conditions.
