Service characteristics

Mailing lists offers...

  • Mailing lists are operated within the Mailman software.
  • List administrators maintain their distribution and mailing lists independently.
  • List administrators have individual settings available for their mailing lists.

The address of a desired mailing list is: WUNSCHNAME@lists.tu-darmstadt.de. If possible, the desired name should include the abbreviation or name of the corresponding institution, to avoid conflicts with general lists.

No other mail domains are currently offered.

Double opt-in procedure for subscriptions to mailing lists

The law stipulates that a subscription to a mailing list (or newsletter) may only take place with the help of a double opt-in procedure. In concrete terms, this means that after a person has requested an entry, he or she must confirm the request again. An e-mail with a confirmation link will be sent to the specified e-mail address. Only when this has been confirmed does the person become a member of a mailing list.

The Douple-Opt-In procedure is set as standard for new lists and should not be changed!

E-mail addresses are personal data!

Since (almost all) e-mail addresses are basically personal data, it must be prevented that other persons in a mailing list may access this data. For this reason, the option of viewing a member list of new mailing lists is restricted to list administration by default. This should not be changed!

This service is subject to a fee. An overview of the prices can be found here.
