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. 

What Lists are Available?

Oops, it seems that you need to place a table or a macro generating a table within the Table Filter macro.

The table is being loaded. Please wait for a bit ...

This list is not intended as a forum for dialogue or commercial advertisement. All faculty, including librarians, are automatically included on this list. Because the members of this list are also on the allstaff-l list, the same message should not be sent to both faculty-l and allstaff-l.

Sending Mail to a List

All mailing to a list should be addressed to listname@geneseo.edu.

When you are a member of the list and using your Gmail@Geneseo account, Mailman will not deliver a second copy of the message to your inbox. 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.
