Make a List

The password will be mailed back to you in plain text, so don't choose anything valuable. Also, note that the list name should only contain dashes (-), numbers, and letters, and letters are forced to lowercase.

Since you can't create group accounts that share a name with a list, you may want to avoid creating a list with a name that you may want to use later for an account. For example, choose "hcs-list" instead of "hcs", since you may want to use the latter for a group account later on.

Emails go to
The confirmation e-mail must be a valid Harvard e-mail address, and will be used for authorization. If left blank the list admin e-mail will be used.
