This page is intended to provide a comprehensive guide for student organizations on how to create a student org email and register that email on the listerv. If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions please feel free to reach out to the MSA Webmaster: Janmesh Patel (email@example.com).
Create Student Org Email
Use google to create a gmail for your student org such as "firstname.lastname@example.org".
Register Student Org on Listerv
Click on the following link: https://email.wisc.edu/lists/create
You may be prompted to sign in to your "wis.edu" email.
Enter the following information into the empty fields:
Group Name: Enter your student org name.
Archives (Message History): Enabled
Posting Security: Only group administrators may post
Messages flagged as spam by Google: Post messages to group
Click "Create Group" (the group will be created in a few minutes)
After a few minutes a grey text box will appear on the page with your student org's listserv name "email@example.com"
At this point this listerv is linked to your personal "wisc.edu" email.
Transfer Listserv Ownership to Student Org Email
Once you have your student org listserv name (step 4 in "Register Student Org on Listserv) go to this link: https://it.wisc.edu/services/google-groups/
Select "Manage your Google Groups" on the right side of the screen.
You may be prompted to sign in to your ""wisc.edu" email.
In the search bar type in your student org's listerv name "firstname.lastname@example.org"
Select "Add Members" next to the student org listserv group.
Enter your student org email under the "Group Owner" section and click "Add Member".
Your student org gmail should now be the owner of the listserv. This gmail can now be passed down to future cohorts. Once this gmail is made owner, it can make other users the owner as well. There can be more than one owner for a listserv.
