The LISTSERV Choice Awards Grand Prize Finalists Are ...

People around the world have cast more than 18,000 votes for their favorite email lists. Which list will win L-Soft's LISTSERV Choice Awards – The Mailys – this year? The five grand prize finalists, which received the highest percentage of votes in each month of the competition, are:

  • DEERHOUND-L, a discussion list for Scottish Deerhound dog breed enthusiasts
  • NYCSLIST, a professional networking forum for New York City School Library personnel
  • FUNDSVCS, a discussion list for people who run fundraising programs
  • GUNROOM, an email community about the world of author Patrick O'Brian
  • RECOVERYMEDITATIONS, daily inspirational vignettes for overcoming compulsive eating

Twenty email lists were nominated to this year's award program. While every list runs on LISTSERV software, they represent a wide array of uses of the technology, topics and impacts on their subscribers.

The Mailys began in 2004 to recognize outstanding email lists, in honor of L-Soft's 10 years in business. In celebration of L-Soft's 20th anniversary, the winning list owner and a randomly selected nominator will each receive a trip and meeting with L-Soft Founder and CEO Eric Thomas, who invented LISTSERV, which pioneered opt-in email list communication, in 1986.
