What is a Listserv™?
A listserv™ is an electronic mailing list that allows members of a group (in this case, the OCBA Masters Division) to communicate with everyone in the group whenever they choose via email. It also allows members of the group to search through archives of any past discussions communicated through the list.
How does it work?
To send a new message through the listserv, simply send an email from the email account associated with your OCBA member profile to email@example.com. The message will then be sent to all current members of the OCBA Masters Division. Once the email is received by the members they can respond to everyone in the group (reply all) or just to the sender (reply). All messages are then archived in an online forum, which can be accessed and searched by OCBA Masters Division members at any time through the web.
How do I join the Listserv™?
How do I view the archives?
Simply click here. Using your email address associated with your OCBA member profile, you will have the ability to create a password and then search or view the archives at your leisure.
How do I remove myself from the Listserv™?
In order to remove yourself from the listserv, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the list name in the subject line. These instructions will be in the welcome message, as well as at the bottom of every message you receive from the list.
What if I want to remain on the list but I’m getting too many messages?
We suggest that you set up a rule in your email software to move the messages to a special folder as you receive them. This is generally very simple to do and gives you the convenience of viewing the messages when you want. For instance, in Outlook you could do this by going to: TOOLS → RULES AND ALERTS → NEW RULE → MOVE MESSAGES FROM SOMEONE TO A FOLDER. At this point you would type in the list email address: email@example.com.
We hope these FAQs will help you learn what the listserv™ is all about and help you benefit from this additional member feature of the OCBA Masters Division. For additional support please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us directly at 949.440.6700, ext. 121.
