Self Help - Mailing List General Information
The following is a list of centrally managed Geneseo mailing lists. If you are looking for a mailing list to be created for your project, student organization, or external group, please use Google Groups for your needs.
These lists are official in that they are derived directly from the Human Resources and Banner Student databases; all such addresses are included, and for most of them there is no "opt-out" mechanism. Messages sent to these lists should be of broad interest to the targeted audience, concise, and contain a descriptive subject. Sending to multiple lists with cross membership is not permitted. (i.e. sending the same message to events-L, secretary-L and professional-L) Email will be rejected by the list moderator if it does not meet the purpose of the list.

Sending Mail to a List
All mailing to a list should be addressed to email@example.com.

If you desire to keep a copy for your records, you may choose to add your email address as a CC: or move the message from your Sent folder to another location.
In response to feedback from Geneseo Mailman users, we have modified Mailman to send acknowledgements of accepted messages to non-member posters.
