Email discussion lists for the UK Education and Research communities


How to choose Categories

When requesting a new list you will be asked to specify up to 5 categories for your list to be included in. Please make sure you choose catagories if your list is to be Public or Restricted, as their associated category codes are what decide the category pages that your list appears in. Since only non-confidential lists appear on those pages, you do not need to select categories if your list is Private
