  7. You’ll be taken to the membership pending web page. The listserv owner will receive an email notification and will approve your membership, and you’ll receive a listserv membership confirmation email (it might take a few hours). This is where experiences can differ from user to user. It depends on whether you have configured auto-forwarding from your account and/or whether you even use that account. Here’s an explanation. Chico State employees have TWO email accounts: one account is in Exchange/Office 365 (this is your account, and it is your primary employee email account); the other account is in Google (this is your account; this account is mostly used by Chico State students and a few faculty/staff, but many employees don’t even realize they have this account). The listserv membership confirmation email will be sent to your Google account. If you have configured your Google account to auto-forward email to your Exchange/Office 365 account, then you’ll receive a forwarded copy of the listserv confirmation email in your employee Exchange/Office 365 inbox; otherwise the email will only be in your Google in box. If you want to configure auto-forwarding, please see this Google support article(opens in new window).
