Elist is a command center for creating and participating in electronic mailing lists at Tufts University.
A mailing list offers a means of communicating electronically with a collection of people through a single email address. These lists are a simple tool for collaboration and communication with a wide variety of the Tufts population.
Posting via Email

- Open the email application of your choice (e.g. Outlook).
- Start a new mesage.
- In the To field, add the email address of the mailing list that you would like to post a message to (e.g. email@example.com).

- When you are ready, send the email.
NOTE: If the list is moderated, your message may have to be approved by the list's owners/moderators before it is distributed.
