What is a mailing list
A mailing list is a single email address that is associated with multiple recipients. It can be used by an individual or an organization to send one email that is recieved by all subscribed.
There are two types of mailing lists:
Self-managed lists: These can be set up and managed by anyone.
Centrally-managed lists: These are automatically updated daily from our records.
Why create a mailing list
- You email the same group of people on a regular basis
- You want to create a singular address through which you can email a group of people simultaneously.
- You want to save time and effort.
Who can create a list
Anyone at the University can create a mailing list and by default anyone on campus can email them.
How to create a list
Help with lists
Students by department/year including taught/research postgraduates and final year lists
- These lists are to send short messages that are relevant to the whole group and for Univeristy business only. They are not for marketing purposes. Please contact corporate communications to advertise events.
- You should not use these lists to promote, market or to request students to complete surveys and research projects. You can advertise surveys and research projects to students via the University noticeboard and via the Participate in student research web page. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to promote your research project or survey.
- Student lists are frozen each year on 31 May and start being generated again on 1 September. This allows all of the changes for the new academic year to be made by Student Records. Staff can continue to use these lists throughout the summer as they were at the end of the previous academic year.
