How do I join a Lyris list?


Lyris List Manager is a Internet application used to distribute messages and announcements.

Certain lists, such as all-students and all-faculty, are automatically created and updated based on information in the Banner database. Please read Common List Descriptions for information on these lists.

Before you begin...

You will need to know the full address of the list you wish to join, ex. "".


To join a list, send an email to "", where "listname" is the name of the list you want to join. Leave the subject line and body of the email blank.

You may receive a confirmation request shortly after sending this email. Follow the instructions in the request (which involves replying to the message or clicking on a web link). The confirmation process helps ensure that only people who want to join a list receive the list's messages.


Please note it may take some time for you to join the list, as lists can be configured in a number of ways:

  • Open membership: Anyone can join the list by following the above steps.

  • Private membership: The list administrator must approve the request before you will be added to the list.

  • Closed membership: Only list administrators can add new members; the email method above will only notify the list's administrator that you tried to join. In this circumstance, you should contact the list administrator to discuss whether you can join the list.
