Listservs related to Hearing Loss

What are Listservs?

  • Listservs are basically e-mail discussion groups are a great way to be in touch with others around the world who have similar interests. These lists are formed around a topic or interest, and you join the list by signing on to receive everyone's posts. There are lists formed around specific dog breeds, computer programs, and social and political interests. Some lists are pretty quiet, with less than 10 messages a day being sent to your mailbox. Other lists are very busy, and if you do not check your e-mail regularly, you can easily fill you mailbox to its limit. (For a more exact description, see About Electronic Mailing Lists.)
