3. Requesting the creation of a mailing list

If the ownership and subject matter conditions are met (see above), request a list by visiting the appropriate Sympa instance:

then log in, follow the 'Create List' link and complete the request form.

You will receive a message (usually within one working day), either telling you that your request has been approved and the list has been created, or that your request has been denied.

When your list is created a mail alias will be created which will redirect all mail sent to the list owner to you. For example, if your list was called mylist then any mail sent to mylist-owner@maillist.ox.ac.uk would be passed on to the email account of the list owner.
