I have created a list server for Physics 105. A list server is a program that distributes email messages to all persons subscribed to the server. The main goal of the server is to allow information exchange between physics 105 students. To subscribe to the list server you send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org and in the subject of the email you include the following text:
You will receive a confirmation of your registration, and the email address of the account you used to send the subscription request will be used as the email address to which listserver messages will be send.
To send an email to all subscribers of the listserver you send an email to
This email will then be distributed to all the students subscribed to the listserver. I will monitor the emails distributed to ensure that it is only used for appropriate information exchange. For example, emails like "Who is interested in forming a working group to analyze the results of Experiment 10" are appropriate, but emails such as "Copies of report # 5 are on sale" are not.
As part of the subscription process you will receive information via email about how to access the archives of the list server, and how to change the settings of your account.
