Mailing List Archive

Version 10.6.2  03/23/2016

Description

The Mailing List Archive tool allows the site creator to create an email address that will be used to mass email all site participants. The tool allows you to use your Texas State University email address (either through Bobcatmail or Outlook/Entourage) to send the email to the site. Emails sent through the Mailing List Archive tool will have copies retained on the site. 

The only roles allowed to send email using the Mailing List Archive tool are Instructor, TA, and Maintainer. All other roles will have to be granted permission to use it.

We recommend making the email address you choose specific to course, section, and semester, as to not have duplicate email addresses. An example Mailing List Archive address may look like:  Eng2310sec251f10@tracs.txstate.edu (English2310, Section 251, Fall 2012).

NOTE: Email attachments cannot be over 30MB for the total file size. If the total file size is over 30MB it is possible the email will not be sent by the BobcatMail system.
