Email Mass e-mails, campus-wide e-mails & listservs

By default, the e-mail server only allows messages to be sent to 150 recipients at a time. If you need to send out messages to more than that number, you may request that a listserv be created for you. A listserv maintains a list of e-mail addresses in a group. When you want to send out a message to that group, you send a message to the listserv's e-mail address and the server then distributes the message to the addresses in the group. The listserv can be set up to only allow the owner/moderator to send out messages to the list to as broad as anyone can send out messages to the list. If you're interested in exploring this option, feel free to contact the ITS Help Desk.

If you're wanting to send out a message to all students, all faculty, all staff or any combination thereof, you'll need to send the proposed e-mail to the divisional Vice-President. If the VP approves the message, he/she will send it to someone who has the permissions to send out the message campus-wide.
