Email distribution services are generally-web-based services designed to deliver email quickly and efficiently to large numbers of recipients. These services allow list administrators/owners to easily distribute messages and send out announcements to their whole community as well as communicate with specific segments of that community. These services also provide various tools and options for customizing how individual lists behave, including who can send messages to the list and how people can join it.

MSU Denver utilizes multiple email distribution services, but the two most widely used are Office 365 Distribution Groups and Lyris List Manager.


  • Office 365 Distribution Groups are created and managed through Outlook Web App.
  • To access Lyris List Manager go to the Faculty & Staff Hub and click the 'Lyris Listserv' link. Log in with your Lyris username and password. 


For information about how to use Office 365 Distribution Groups or Lyris List Manager, please see the Email Distribution Services Knowledgebase page.
