Information Technology & Systems manage the central lists which are called Distribution lists. These can be setup to enable messages to be sent to large groups of people.
- Distribution lists
- Can only contain University email addresses
- Can be restricted for use by specific groups of users
- More efficient when sending internal messages
To be able to send messages to large groups of people (including All Staff, All Students etc) you must have the correct permissions. These can only be obtained by getting your Head of Department/School to contact Marketing for approval. If approved Marketing will then log a service desk call to request access to the distribution lists. Information Technology & Systems will refuse any direct requests.
Measures have been put in place to prevent spam and viruses being delivered to your email account. Email filtering service scans email entering the University network for spam, phishing and viruses before being delivered to your mailbox. We recommend you familiarise yourself with the risk of phishing attacks to help protect your email account.
