Listserv or Campus Group?
Class lists generated through Campus Groups are separate from the listserv system. If you send email to your class using an address based on the class code and semester followed by @bc.edu, you are using Campus Groups. All listservs have "@listserv.bc.edu" as the second part of the addres.
