USAP Mailing Lists
U.S. Antarctic Program - IT Comms Section United States Antarctic Program United States Antarctic Program Logo National Science Foundation Logo

The United States Antarctic Program (USAP) utilizes list servers for distributing pertinent information to target audiences. There is a list server for each USAP station that advises of outages, network and system maintenance, and other IT events of interest. The distribution lists are broadcast lists only and any mail sent to the lists by general members is rejected.

The USAP also maintains system/service event notification lists that allow member postings, but membership requires moderator approval.

NOTE: When you subscribe to such lists, you are notified via email if you have received moderator approval.
