Unsubscribing From LISTSERVs in Simple Steps

It’s that time of the semester: clubs are picking up, clogging up inboxes with sometime multiple emails a day. At this point, you pretty much know whether or not you will actually be an active member in SPA, the Three Broomsticks Harry Potter Club, or any other random club you may have registered for on a whim at the involvement fair.

So what do you do when you want to stop receiving emails from these clubs? Hint: you don’t have to annoy everyone else on the LISTSERV by sending the typical “please remove me from the LISTSERV” email.

Creation of and subscriptions to LISTSERVs are managed at Here, you can manually remove yourself from as many lists as desired without having to wait for the club’s secretary to remove you.

To access your lists, start at the Subscriber’s Corner page.

From there, you will be prompted to log in to the site. Because the log in page isn’t the same other Penn State WebAccess pages, you’ll have to register your email. This can be done by clicking “get a new LISTSERV password” on the login page.

After confirming this via your email, you’ll be taken to a page listing your current subscriptions. On this page, you can go through and select individual lists and choose to unsubscribe; it’s very simple.

Through the LISTSERV website, you can also subscribe to, or, in some cases, request a subscription to a LISTSERV. All registered lists are available for your viewing pleasure under the Online Mailing Lists Archive page, including those for Commonwealth Campus organizations. 

The website can be a little slow to load, but overall its a beneficial yet seldom-used resource for students.

Now please stop spamming my inbox with requests to be removed from the offending LISTSERV. Thank you.
