Technical Note - Mailing Lists
ECS maintains many different mailing lists to allow staff, students and others to easily communicate with each other. This page lists all the mailing lists we administer.
Emailing staff and students
Sending a message
any of these addresses will send copies of your message to the appropriate group of people. All addresses are

admin-staff - The ECS administrative staff
graduates - all graduate students
others - Other people with accounts on the ECS system
announce - A convenience list that sends mail to staff, graduates and others
list does not necessarily include all those in the UNIX group
. It is a subset of people for whom group announcements may be appropriate (such as school visitors).
Most ECS courses and many SMS ones have mailing lists associated with them. The list name will be
and will contain all students, tutors and staff associated with the course. There may also be a
list containing just the lecturers and tutors. Staff members can check if these lists exists for their courses and also verify the list membership by browsing the Mailing List Attributes
If a list doesn't exist a course lecturer can request one by emailing email@example.com
. Once a list has been created for a course it will be automatically populated in subsequent years, so it will only need to be requested once.
ECS also hosts public lists, which can be found at our mailman
