What is a Listserv?

A listserv is a collection of email addresses.  By sending a message to a listserv, a single message can be sent simultaneously to a group of people.  Email lists are typically configured for use either as one-way announcement lists or discussion lists.  The main difference is that only the list owner or editor can write to a one-way list, whereas every list member can write to a discussion list.
