UPDATE: LISTSERV administrative web page changing to HTTPS


Published: 27Apr2020

UPDATE: April 27, 2020
The URL change for LISTSERVs that was announced at the end of February was postponed due to issues beyond our control. The new date for implementation of this change will be on Wednesday, April 29, 2020. Thank you for your understanding.

ORIGINAL POST: February 13, 2020
Please note that as of Thursday, February 27, 2020 the URL to access McGill's LISTSERV web interface will change from http://lists.mcgill.ca to the more secure https://lists.mcgill.ca

Who is affected and how:

  • LISTSERV owners and managers will need to use the new URL, https://lists.mcgill.ca to access the web interface in order to manage list membership, view archived messages, and send communications via newsletter templates.
  • There will be no change for members or administrators using the email address listserv [at] lists.mcgill.ca to send commands, such as subscribe or unsubscribe or query
  • There will be no change when sending communications by email to a LISTSERV list*

* For LISTSERV managers, if your email messages typically include a link to the listserv web interface, with instructions on how to unsubscribe, you will need to change that link to https://lists.mcgill.ca 

For questions or assistance, please contact the IT Service Desk at ITSupport [at] mcgill.ca or phone 514-398-3398.
