What is a "group" list and how do I request one?

Modified on Tue, 13 Feb 2018 at 08:36 AM

A group list is basically a list of contacts. It works much the same way as a personal distribution list you can make in your email client (Outlook), except that with a group list, everyone who uses the Exchange server can access the list in the Global Address Book.

A group list makes it easy to email a specified group of individuals without having to add the email address of each contact one by one. For example, if Human Resources requested a group list called "HR" that contained the name of every person on the Human Resources team, a message sent to hr@lesley.edu would go to all recipients listed in the group list. Like any email address, it can receive mail from anyone on the internet, inside or outside the Lesley Community.

For faculty and staff who wish to request a group list, please send an email to it@lesley.edu with the following information:

  • name of the distribution list
  • the person who will administer this list (add/remove users)
  • the members of the list
