Compared to traditional email, sending emails through a LISTSERV allows you to send an email to multiple people without having to type each individual email address for every email you send.  Also, it makes replying to emails easier because replying to a LISTSERV sends a copy of the reply to everyone on the list as well.

In addition to saving you time when composing emails, LISTSERVs give you the ability to manage your list in a variety of ways.  You and add/remove members to/from your group through email or through the list management webpage.
