|What is a Listserv? An e-mail
list of e-mail addresses of people with common interests. Software enables
people who belong to a list to send messages to the group without
typing a series of addresses into the message header. Usually members
of the group in the listserv have to individually subscribe to or unsubscribe
from the mailing list.
