Mailing Lists

A mailing list is used to select a defined group of individuals to communicate with by specifying only one address in an email client. It provides a convenient method by which to contract a group of individuals and share information amongst people with common interest.

Mailing lists categorized as being "official" are owned by IAS for sending official announcements. Usually, official mailing lists have restrictions on who can use them. These authorized users have been informed of their ability to post to these lists. If a non-authorized person tries to send a message to an official list, it will not work. IAS has official mailing lists for sending announcements to all faculty, emeriti, members, and staff.

You can also send questions to the list administrator at mailman@ias.edu.

If you do not normally send mass e-mailings to the "all" lists, you can send the message and request to postrequest@ias.edu. If you already have a method to send to these lists, please do not use postrequest!

Please note that most mailing lists are internal only which means that only mail sent via an IAS mail server will make it to the mail list even if you have permissions to send to a specific list.

Sending E-mail to a Mailing List:

Please follow these guidelines to ensure that everyone can read your message.

  1. If you are not sure that you have been authorized to send to an official mail list, please contact the mail list administrator for verification. The mail list administrator's address is mailman@ias.edu.
  2. Please send the message in plain text format. Most mail clients allow you to change the format of the new mail message using a menu option. If you do not know how to do this, please contact your computing support staff.
  3. When using formating and layout in email applications, the message constructed is not guaranteed to look the same in the recipient's email application. If your message must have fonts, graphics and intricate formating/layout pleaseattach the document as a PDF.
  4. PDF attachment vs. PDF on your web site: If your attachment is for public consumption, it might be better to place the PDF on a web site and include the URL to the PDF in the mail message sent. If the PDF is not for the IAS community (private) then attaching it to the mail message is appropriate.
  5. Official mailing lists will strip attachments that are not in PDF format. Microsoft Word and Corel WordPerfect documents should not be attached to documents sent to mailing lists.
  6. If your message is all text, please do not use a PDF attachment. You can just copy the text into the body of the message.
  7. Always include a subject line.
  8. Do not set the message to send back a reply when it has been opened or read.
