Anyone with a user account on the UCT network may create or request that a mailing list be created for their use.
Alternatively, log a call with the IT Helpdesk and provide the following information:
- Name of the list you wish to create.
- Email address of the list owner.
- Email addresses of members.
The list owner will be informed once the list has been created.
If you requested the creation of a list, you will be deemed as the owner of the list unless you have specified another list owner. The list owner, and not ICTS, is responsible for administering and maintaining the list.
You manage your groups directly in Outlook following these instructions. These instructions may be used to add and remove internal as well as external members.
You can leave a group by following these instructions.
You can join a group via Outlook or directly from an email you receive from a group you're not a part of.
Groups are private by default. Upon creating a group, owners can make it public, but will need to manually change this privacy setting.
A group owner will need to give permission for anyone to join a group that is not currently a member.
Group owners can change the privacy settings to make a group public upon creation.
List administrators and moderators are automatically notified daily of pending administrative requests (i.e. subscription requests). By default, if approval is required for subscription, an email is immediately sent to the list administrators and moderators for each subscription request.
All emails sent via the group are automatically saved in the group's mailbox.
Right click on the group in Outlook. Click the dropdown menu on the right side of the screen to view the list of members. The list owner's name will always be listed first. You can then email the individual directly with your query.
