Which E-lists are Hosted by CIT? (Lyris)

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


CIT hosts more than 5500 different e-lists, serving more than 1,600,000 members. There are millions of lists hosted in other places. So how do you tell whether these web pages apply to the list you're interested in? A quick look at the email address of the list will tell you. CIT-hosted lists have addresses that end with

-L@cornell.edu
(a hyphen, the letter "L" (uppercase OR lowercase), the "at" sign, then "cornell.edu")

Here are some examples (some of which are fictitious):

Hosted by CIT

students-L@cornell.edu 

cit-alert-L@cornell.edu 

class-of-1935-L@cornell.edu 

sheep-shearing-L@cornell.edu 

Not Hosted by CIT

students-L@law.cornell.edu 

The address after the @ sign has to be just cornell.edu not something.cornell.edu.

Lists with a something.cornell.edu address are hosted by an individual school or unit at Cornell, but not CIT.

limnological@cornell.edu 

The "limnological" address doesn't have"-L" just before the @ sign.

cu-1935-L@cornellclub.org 

The domain name has to be cornell.edu and not just something close to it.

sheep-shearing@rancher.net 

Not even close...
