ListProc is list processing software that allows list subscribers to share messages on email lists that are managed by the specific list owners. These shared email 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).
