Mailman Mailing List Service

In September 2021, rates will change for some of the technology services provided by University IT. To view the majority of our planned rate changes for services that are broadly available to our community, please visit this page. For more information, please visit the rates section of our website.

Do you frequently send emails to the same group of people within the campus community? If so, a mailing list management service can simplify the process. Academic and administrative workgroups, student clubs and organizations, project groups, and committees can all use a mailing list service to create and manage lists and to send email to list members.

The Mailman mailing list service is based on a local installation of Mailman, the GNU Mailing List Manager. The service runs on the server and provides built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, spam and content filtering, and digest delivery. In addition to Mailman, you can also use the Google Groups mailing list service. Google Groups is the preferred mailing list service, however certain functionalities are currently only available in Mailman. Compare Stanford's mailing list management services to determine which one best meets your needs.


Visit the Mailman mailing list tools webpage to create, manage, view, and copy lists. List owners should this page as a starting point to request new lists and manage or administer existing lists. List subscribers start here to subscribe to a new list, to manage or unsubscribe from existing list memberships, and to manage preferences
