Mass Email

DESCRIPTION:

OIT will create a mass email distribution list which allows you to communicate with groups and colleagues. Once the email address has been created, you are responsible for managing membership, feature management, and list maintenance.

OIT offers two types of mass email distribution lists based on user needs: distribution lists (O365 Groups) and listserv (MailMan). There are significant differences in the features between distribution lists (O365 Groups) and listserv (MailMan) that need to be considered. Please review the comparison chart for a summary of features.

If you know you need to include external email addresses in your distribution list, the only option available is MailMan.
