    How to email a program area
  2. The email is sent to an Exchange distribution list, so you will only see the one email in your sent box.

Limitations

  • Only Faculty Offices and IT Services can email these lists. Users who attempt to email or reply-all to the list are rejected.
  • Expanding the list does not reveal the correct number of recipients. Only the recipients who are in the Microsoft Exchange Global Address Book will be revealed, not all students.

    Recipients

  • The correct number of recipients can only be viewed in Outlook 2013, 2016 for Windows or Outlook Web Access. Outlook for Mac does not show recipient counts.
