NetPals Email Group Service

The following terms and conditions apply to NetPals, a free LISTSERV email group service, provided by email technology company L-Soft:

  • The NetPals service is intended to support direct educational programs
  • This service is available for primary and secondary schools (K-12)
  • Youth service organizations based in school districts, places of worship, community organizations and similar educational entities for youth generally qualify
  • NetPals email lists and groups can be requested by teachers and students
  • Each email group can host up to 250 subscribers. If your email group needs more subscriber capacity, you may request an increase after your list is created
  • Please notify us if you no longer need your NetPals service. Unused groups may be removed without notice after six months of inactivity
  • Use links for sharing videos and multimedia files, and try to avoid large attachments, which are discouraged due to filter limits
