The D.C. Bar Communities Connect LISTSERV mailing lists allow users to connect directly and share information with fellow Community members.

What Kind of Things Can I Post?

  • Networking: Introduce yourself and inspire dialogue between members
  • Share a Resource or Article of Interest
  • Ask a Question or Share Advice
  • Share Leadership/Volunteer Opportunities
  • Share Job Postings
  • Remind Members of Upcoming Events

How Can I Control the Frequency and Format of Emails I Receive?

Sign into the LISTSERV Web Interface (if you have not created a password yet, click “Register Password”). Once signed in, click on the check box to the left of appropriate Community’s list name(s) to edit your subscription(s).  When you have selected the desired options from the “mail style” and “mail status” dropdowns, click UPDATE.

For each community, you have the following “mail style” options:

  • Regular: sends an email every time a new message is posted.
  • Digest (Default): sends one email to you each day, consolidating all posts from that day at 10pm EST.
  • Index: sends one email to you each day, listing the subject lines from all posts from that day. You can reply to the index email to receive the full text of a certain post.

If you no longer wish to receive any emails from a particular list, select “no mail” under “mail status.”

  1. Open a New Email using your primary email address (the one you use to sign into the D.C. Bar website)
