We are pleased to announce the start of LIST SERV for Interior Design Alumni at Ball State University. The LISTSERV has been formed to provide you with a platform for communication. We encourage you to use LISTSERV for various announcements, group discussions, networking etc. Please follow the instructions below to subscribe to the group INTERIOR_DESIGN_ALUMNI.

Subscribe via LISTSERV web interface:

  1. From, select "List Subscribers". You will be presented with a catalog of available LISTSERV lists.
  2. Click on the list INTERIOR_DESIGN_ALUMNI. You will be presented with a list of options.
  3. You will see the option "Join or leave the list (or change settings)." Select this option.
  4. You will be presented with a form. Fill in your e-mail address and your name (Firstname Lastname).
  5. The desired list has been pre-selected for you.
  6. Click on "Join the list."
  7. If you have entered the information correctly, you will get a message stating that a confirmation notice is being sent under separate cover. This is to ensure that the email address is legitimate and that someone isn't trying to subscribe you to the list against your will. Follow the instructions in the message to confirm the operation. Refer to for additional information.
  8. Your request will be sent to the owner of the list. As soon as the owner permits your membership to LISTSERV, you will receive a confirmation E mail and various instructions for using the LISTSERV.
  9. After you subscribe, you should be able to send E mail to all the members by sending your e mail to INTERIOR_DESIGN_ALUMNI@LISTSERV.BSU.EDU. Also you will receive the emails sent by other members.

Basically, when an e-mail is addressed to a LISTSERV mailing list, it is automatically broadcast to everyone on the list. The result is similar to a newsgroup or forum, except that the messages are transmitted as e-mail and are therefore available only to individuals on the list.
