OB Listserv

The OB Listserv (also known as the Discussion List), is the main service for posting emails on issues of interest to members of the OB community. This service forwards emails posted to the ob@aomlists.aom.org address to all listserv subscribers.

The OB Listserv is moderated by the current Listserv Manager.

To subscribe to the OB Listserv, you can send a subscription email to listserv@aomlists.aom.org from the mailing address you wish to use. The body of the email message should contain only the following line:


The email should not contain any signature line and its Subject field should be blank. You will receive a confirmation email from the listserv; follow the instructions to verify the email address and sign-up for the list.

To post a message to the OB discussion list, send the email to: ob@aomlists.aom.org .

Some very useful features of this service:

Access archived emails

All OB discussion list emails posted are archived for retrieval. You can access them here. All postings related on the same discussion thread are grouped underneath the original posting.

Search for posted emails

The OB discussion list service provides full archive search capability, which is very useful for locating specific emails.

  • After login, you can go to the “Welcome to Subscriber’s Corner” page.
  • Select on the OB discussion list to take you to the “Join or Leave the OB list” page.
