KU Group Lists
KU Group Lists are a convenient way to communicate by email with groups of people at KU or grant security access. KU offers two different list serving methods: KU Group Lists and ListProc. The "Mailing List page" has an explanation of the differences between these two choices.
1. What is a KU Group List?
A KU Group List can be created to distribute email or to grant security access. Members of a KU group List must be KU users (faculty, staff, students, etc.)
A KU Group List is hosted on the server and can be utilized by multiple people. A personal distribution list only resides within your personal Exchange mailbox.
KU Group Lists will support the current Exchange distribution lists. Existing distribution lists will continue to work and will continue to be found in the Outlook Global Address List, but there will be new options available.
Your existing lists will continue to work the same way you have always used them. The process to request a new KU Group List has been improved.
There are restrictions on who can request certain lists. Course related KU Group Lists can only be requested by the instructor of record for that class. Some requests for student and staff lists have to be approved by the Registrar's Office, the Department Chair, or the Provost's Office. You will be informed if you request a list that needs additional approval.
The membership of course related KU Group list will be updated automatically on a nightly basis. To request changes to be made to a KU Group List, send an email to the KU Group List Administrator at email@example.com with:
- The name of the KU Group List.
- The names and email addresses of people you want to add or remove from the KU Group List.
You can use a KU Group List to distribute email to the members of a mail-enabled KU Group List. And a KU Group List can be used to grant security access.
There are many KU Group List features available to give you choices and help support your KU Group List.
