The ARMCUMS Listserv is an email discussion group created in May of 2014 and hosted by NACUMS. This free service is open to ARMCUMS members, who are employees of colleges and universities and who are involved in their institution's mail processing.
Non-ARMCUMS members, that meet the above criteria, are welcome to request access to the listserv and will be granted free trial access without ARMCUMS membership until the next membership renewal period expires, usually August 1st of each year. On, or around August 1st, the list is cleared and only members with paid membership fees are reinstated.
The ARMCUMS Listserv is NOT available to vendors, the Postal Service, or outsourcing companies.
To sign up for the listserv, please click on this link and follow the instructions: Listserv Signup
Using the ARMCUMS Listserv
Messages to the entire list should be addressed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use discretion when sending messages to the entire list. Some comments may be helpful to many, others should be sent only to a specific individual.
When responding to messages, please respond to the sender unless you want your reply to go to the entire list, in which case send your reply to the address above.
The most common mistake in using the ARMCUMS Listserv is sending subscribe/unsubscribe commands to the list rather than to the majordomo program that runs the list.General information about the mailing list is at:
If you need/want to unsubscribe or change your options (eg, switch to or from digest mode, change your password, etc.), visit your subscription page at:
You can also make such adjustments via email by sending a message to:
with the word `help' in the subject or body (don't include the quotes), and you will get back a message with instructions.
Typing in all caps is YELLING! When sending a personal response to a message, don't send it to the entire list; reply to the sender only. Sending jokes and other off-topic messages is okay, but identify them as such in the subject (e.g., NOT MAIL RELATED). Last but not least, be sure that what you send is what you want everyone to read. Once you press the send button, the message is gone and can't be recalled. Double check your message before you send it.
