Mailman list administrators may choose to have their list open or closed. An open list means that to subscribe, you only need to sign up and confirm your email address, whereas a closed list means that you make a request to subscribe, and a list administrator chooses to allow or deny such request. With a closed list, you may or may not be required to confirm your email address.
Fill in the appropriate fields. The password that you choose will allow you to later change personal options for this mailing list. Note: your password will be emailed to you, so we strongly recommend that you do not use your NetID password.
Click the Subscribe button. You will then be taken to a page that confirms tht your request has been entered into the system. Check your email at the address you have just subscribed and you should receive an email asking you to confirm the list subscription request you just made.
Click the link in the email or reply to the email to complete your subscription request. If you follow the link the in email, you will have one last confirmation screen to choose to either Subscribe or Cancel the request.
