SRP Listserv Information
is a "Listserv" or a "Maillist?"
is short for an electronic mailing list server. It is a program
that handles subscription requests for a mailing list and distributes
new messages, announcements, or other postings to the entire list
NOTE: The SRWM listservs send out postings
from the SRP people administering the individual listserv. If
you try to post to the listserv, the message will be sent to the
administrator for that listserv, not to all the listserv subscribers.
Technically, a "maillist" is short for
an electronic mailing list and is not the same as a "listserv"
or "list server." Informally, it is sometimes used interchangeably
with "listserv." To avoid confusing people with the two
term, the SRP site is using "listserv" to include "maillist"
Note: A list server should not be confused
with a mail server, which handles incoming and outgoing email for

to an SRWM Listserv but didn't get any emails. What's happening?
the very least, you should have received two initial emails upon
successful subscription. If you've received the initial emails,
it may be that no new postings have been sent to the listserv.
If you did not receive the initial emails and it
has been several days, there can be many reasons for this. Among
You may have mistyped your email address when you subscribed.
You can try again.
If you are not receiving other emails, there may be a disruption
of your Internet service or email connection.
- The emails from the listserv may be blocked, filtered out, or
automatically deleted by your Internet Service Provider or various
systems in the Internet connection. Although this is rare, it
can happen. You can try another computer and/or email account
to subscribe to the listserv to see if that works.
| I don't want
to continue receiving the Listserv emails. How do I stop them?
the SRP listservs, simply email Majordomo@listserv.state.nj.us
the command "unsubscribe" followed by the list name in
the email's message.
If you are subscribed to a listserv call "demo-list,"
the email message text would be:
To remove an address other than the one from which
you're sending the request, give that address in the command:
unsubscribe demo-list subscribed_email_address
Where subscribed_email_address is whatever email address
you used to subscribe to the listserv.
In either of these cases, you can tell Majordomo@listserv.state.nj.us
to remove the address in question from all lists on this server
by using "*" in place of the list name:
unsubscribe * subscribed_email_address
|I don't know why
I am receiving these emails. Are you trying spam me?
The NJDEP Site Remediation
Program is not seeking to spam (send unsolicited bulk emails) anybody.
It is possible that you subscribed to a listserv by accident or
forgot that you subscribed. It is possible that another person signed
your email address onto the listserv.
In either case, you can use the unsubscribe commands described
above. If it does seem that somebody forged your email address to
subscribe you without your consent, contact email@example.com.
