June 7, 2012 – The Office of Information Technology announces a change to Listserv on Thursday, June 14. The preferred Listserv hostname will be changed from bama.ua.edu to listserv.ua.edu at 6:00am.
WHAT WILL CHANGE?
When Listserv sends email, it will use “LISTSERV.UA.EDU” instead of “BAMA.UA.EDU” to refer to itself. For example, Dialog Extra, published via the UA Listserv, will show that it was sent to UA@LISTSERV.UA.EDU rather than UA@BAMA.UA.EDU. Existing lists will accept email under either hostname, but new lists will work only with listserv.ua.edu.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
If you use Listserv, please update your contacts and bookmarks to reflect the change in hostname. Listserv’s bama.ua.edu addresses will still work after the change, but will no longer be the preferred way to reach Listserv. If you are using rules to sort or filter email you receive from Listserv, then you may need to update your rules if they contain references to the hostname bama.ua.edu.
WHY ARE WE MAKING THIS CHANGE?
To provide a better quality of service for Listserv, we are planning to move it to a dedicated system that will be better protected against hardware, software, or network failure. Changing the preferred hostname will prepare for the move by separating Listserv email and web traffic from all other activity on Bama so that it can be easily rerouted to the new system at a later date.
