University email group changes

The way University email groups work has changed. You may need to check any rules you have set in Outlook for these email addresses.

A University email group is an email address for a group of people, for example

What’s changed?

From Friday 18 July 2014:

  • Email group owners will be able to add and remove group members themselves, without having to contact the IT Service Desk. Find out who owns a University email group
  • University email groups will appear in the Outlook Address Book unless they have been deliberately hidden

What do I need to do?

If you receive emails sent to a University email group, you should check that any rules referring to the email group still work after Friday 18 July 2014. After this date, if you think anyone should be added to or removed from the email group, you can contact the group owner and ask them to change the group membership.
