Student Listservs - Info and Archive pages

There are 5 Administrative lists (ADMIN lists). These are used for postings considered of Administrative importance - grades, registration, seminars, deadlines and so forth. Content is moderated, so only messages deemed truly important to students will be allowed through. Subscription to these lists is closed, you will be added by the Office of Student Affairs. If you need to be added to or removed from a list, or to be on more than one list, etc. please contact Dean Lantz. The messages from these lists are all tagged with ADMIN in the subject line, and all content is archived for one year.

There are 4 student-to-student lists (MEDCLASS lists). These are open to self-subscription by all COM students, faculty and staff. They are generally used for messages about talks, meetings, book sales and so forth, but they are also used by faculty and staff for messages about courses. We ask you to use courtesy and common sense when posting to these lists - keep the traffic low and the signal-to-noise ratio high. The messages from these lists are all tagged with MEDCLASS in the subject line. These lists also do not allow attachments, fancy colored text, etc. If you have files to share, please post them on UIC Google Docs or use box.uofi.com and email to the list that you have done so. These lists are also archived for one year.

We do appreciate that some students will change the year they expect to graduate. You can subscribe to more than one list, and you can set the medclass lists to mail or nomail as needed.

How do I subscribe to a MEDCLASS Listserv?

You can only subscribe from your UIC mail account.

Send an e-mail to listserv@uic.edu. Put in the message body
SUBSCRIBE MedclassXXXX
where XXXX=desired class year, for example Medclass2001
NOTE there are no spaces after Medclass!!

Send this message from your regular UIC mail account. This will not work through gmail.com even if you can use your UIC account that way.

You will get a confirmation request: follow the directions (basically, you click the link provided).

After your subscription is confirmed, you can set it so you won't get messages from that listserv but still can send to it. This is useful for class listservs other than your own, or if you do not need to receive messages from the list for a while. Send another message to listserv@uic.edu. Put in the message body
SET medclassXXXX nomail
(again, XXXX=desired class year)

To change so that you receive mail again, send the message with the command in the message body:
SET medclassXXXX mail
(again, XXXX=desired class year)

Where do I find the Archives of these lists?

 Note - when you go to the archives, you may be asked to log in with a listserv password, which is different from your ACCC password. Use the ACCC utility to get a Listserv password for this server if you don't already have one or if you've forgotten yours. You can also use the Subscriber's Corner at listserv.uic.edu to subscribe to UIC Listserv lists, unsubscribe to UIC Listserv lists, or change your subscription options for your current UIC Listserv subscriptions using the ACCC Listserv Subscriber Utility.
