California State Science Fair
Affiliate LISTSERV

To facilitate communication between the California State Science Fair and its affiliates, as well as among all affiliated fairs throughout the State of California, a mailing list has now been made available, as announced at the County Coordinators Conference at the California State Science Fair. This is a closed-subscription list which is restricted to those persons working for CSSF or for one of its affiliates. For each affiliated fair it is expected that multiple persons will be subscribed to this list, and not only a single contact person.

Subscribing to the List
If you are eligible to join this list and are not already subscribed, simply fill out this form.

Posting Messages
To send mail to the entire list, simply e-mail your message to

You must send mail for the list from your registered e-mail address. If you encounter problems with the ListProcessor rejecting your message saying that you are not a list subscriber, send mail to the list manager who will create the appropriate aliases for your account to enable you to post messages from wherever is most convenient for you.

Receiving Messages
All posts are delivered to your registered e-mail address. You will receive all messages sent to the list including your own, though there will be a variable delay between submission and posting owing to authentication processing.

Unsubscribing Yourself

Commands to this list processor are not case-sensitive.

Getting Help

If you are having difficulties in sending messages, send mail to the list manager who will likely be able to solve your problem. For a summary of commands which are available to you beyond posting messages and reading them as they arrive, send e-mail to with a single line in the body (not the subject) of the mail containing the command


Alternatively, you can review the ListProcessor User Manual which contains all commands and their descriptions.

Known Problems

If you use Pegasus mail, please make sure that 'CONFIRMATION RECEIPTS' are turned OFF. Confirmation receipts create excessive error mail for the list owner, who may delete you from the list for that problem.

If you use Microsoft Mail (MSMail), please make sure that you have configured the default reply to the REPLY-TO tag. Otherwise, when you reply, your message will merely go to the error queue, and will not be posted.
