List Servers

Overview of List Servers

Common Questions

What is a List Server?

A List allows you to send a single Email question to a single Email address (The List's Email Address) and your message is instantly distributed to all members of the List in just seconds. If you reply to a message received from a List, all members will see your response instantly.

Is a List Server Private?

Posting messages and receiving messages from a List is limited to a Private List of Members. However, any message you send to the List is broadcast to hundreds or thousands of lawyers on that List. Keep in mind that email messages could be forwarded to inappropriate parties.

How Do I Stop The Mail Messages?

You can join a list with "No Mail or use the "Vacation Mail" option that stops Email. But you can still post messages to the list when needed, including searching the valuable archives.

How Do I Search Message Archives?

All messages posted to your Lists are fully searchable. You can search the message archives at or at your participating trial lawyer association Web site.


How Do I Join a List?

Contact the Administrator of the List Server in order to join. Your local trial lawyer association or litigation group can get you started. You must typically complete a user agreement and obey established rules. Some Lists require a membership fee.

How Do I Send a Message?

Each List has a single email address (The List Address) -- any message you send to the List, including up to 1 Meg attachments, will be sent to all members of the List instantly.
