E-mail alias

An e-mail alias (or e-mail list) is a special e-mail address used to send e-mail to a group of one or more e-mail addresses. An e-mail alias works by forwarding the group e-mail to each individual address.

Creating an Alias

  1. Go to the GTS Tools Page. Click Lists under the e-mail heading on the left hand side of the browser window.
  2. Type in the name of your desired list in the window. The name can be anything, but is most often something descriptive of the group (i.e. chess-club). Click Create List.
  3. After you have created your list - edit the list by clicking on the list name under Your e-mail lists.
  4. Under "Recipients," add the email addresses of all those you wish on the list. If it is a Gustavus email address, you need only type their username (jdoe). If it is an email address from another domain, enter in the full address (jdoe@hotmail.com).
  5. Adding Administrators. Administrative privileges allow other users to edit the list.

Mailman

Some larger, official Gustavus e-mail lists require advanced options, and use a different system called Mailman. If you believe you need such a list, please contact the Technology Helpline.

Course e-mail aliases

A list of e-mail aliases specifically for courses is available in the Gribly. There are also aliases for departmental majors and minors.
