Overview: Mailing Lists at UD

A mailing list is a collection of email addresses used to send copies of an email message to several people at one time. 

A shared mailing list can facilitate either one-way communication to a group of people or group discussions. We strongly recommend the use of Google Groups for mailing lists, but other options are available.


Faculty and staff: Mailing list options

  • Most people find Google Groups' interface and searchable archives preferable to other on-campus options.
  • P.O. Box lists are useful for communicating with pre-defined UD groups (e.g., all students in a specific class, all sophomores in a specific major). UD's P.O. Box system is restricted to people with UD email addresses.
  • Bulk mail tickets allow you to use UD's P.O. Box system to send an occasional email message to a large group of recipients.
  • Shared mailboxes on Exchange allow multiple staff members to share messages sent to one mailbox.
  • University Printing mailing lists (formerly called "GCC Lists") are maintained by University Printing and allow email to be sent to specific pre-defined groups of University employees. Faculty and staff can view the list of University Mailing lists and contact University Printing for more information.

If you need help finding a mailing list solution that will meet your needs, contact the IT Support Center.


Students: Google Groups

All student requests for a Google Group must be submitted by a faculty or staff member on the student or student group's behalf. For student groups, please contact the appropriate office: Student Activities and Programs, Greek Affairs, or Club Sports.
