ListProc is list processing software that allows list subscribers to share messages on e-mail lists that are managed by the specific list owners. These shared e-mail lists are created in order to send information and/or have discussions among members of a particular group or community. OIT maintains the campus list processor at CU-Boulder serving thousands of active discussion and informational lists with close to 200,000 list subscribers in total.

ListProc is provided as a common-good service to the campus which means there is no direct cost to list owners or list subscribers.
Anyone affiliated with CU-Boulder may request a list. Subscriptions to lists can be open (i.e., anyone can subscribe directly to a list) or owner-approved (i.e., the list owner must review and approve each subscription request).
