IU List FAQ

Faculty and staff will need to provision group email accounts accounts for organizational units and notify John Keller of the group account name.

An easy way to send from your group account is to login to www.exchange.iu.edu with the group name. This is the Outlook Web Access page. It looks somewhat different from the Outlook desktop client, but it works.

Our student email lists fall into two categories:

  • Lists used by faculty and staff for academic/administrative messages (the MD- series)
  • Lists used by student organizations for communication by student leaders (the MD-Orgs- series)

We are no longer using "targets" or "topics" to segment our audiences. To reach the right group of students, select the appropriate list from the table of class lists.

  • For more about the student organizations lists, see IU List FAQ for Student Orgs.
  • For more about the academic/administrative lists, see IU List FAQ for Faculty & Staff.
  • Visit the web interface page for instructions on accessing IU List online.

Who can email the student body?

MSC execs, class officers, SIG officers, committee members, and service project leaders. Due to the structure and functionality of IU List, sending privileges are only given to groups. Your organization will need to acquire a group email account to share among officers. Contact the MSC VP of Membership for assistance with establishing a group email account or if you have lost track of the password.

How can I send from a group email account?

Login to www.exchange.iu.edu or www.mail.iu.edu with the group name and password. This is the Outlook Web Access page.

How can I target my email to the proper audience?

To reach the appropriate audience, you need to email the correct listserv. Consider whether your message is relevant to students of a particular class year and/or campus location, and then match the audience to the listserv. Messages must be targeted to the narrowest appropriate group. Do not notify students at regional campuses of weekday lunch events that they are highly unlikely to attend. If the email includes center students, Polycom and/or Mediasite must be available at the event.

How do I send an email to my class?

The class officers act as moderators for each class list. To request that an announcement be sent to your class, contact your class officers. Specify whether the announcement should go to Indianapolis only, or all students in your class year.

How can I tell whether my message was delivered?

IU List will respond with an error message if there is a problem.
