SloanGroups Group Mailing Lists
Each Sloan student organization has a member listserv and an officer listserv. These lists typically follow a "ClubName.Members@sloangroups.mit.edu" or "ClubName.Officers@sloangroups.mit.edu" naming convention. These lists are populated based on SloanGroups group membership and officer listings.
Member mailing list
To manage your member listserv, simply manage your members within your SloanGroup group "members" tab. Only members and officers of the club can send to this address. The mailing list will only recognize the email address that is associated with their SloanGroups account, which is typically an @mit.edu address.
Officer mailing list
Officers are populated into the officer listserv when they are added as an officer of your group on SloanGroups. Officers must be listed as an "Active Officer" in order to be successfully populated into your officer listserv. Anyone (internal and external to MIT) can email to the officer mailing list.
Creating and managing Mailing Lists in CampusGroups
The Mailing List feature is managed on a per group basis and can be accessed under Emails > Mailing Lists when managing your group. From this screen, you should always be able to see two mailing lists that can only be edited or deleted by administrators of the platform: the officers list and the members list.
Each list has a custom email address that you can use to send emails to the list recipients. The members list can only be used by members of the group, and emails sent by non-members will trigger a moderation email sent to officers so that they can decide if the email should go through. The officers list can be used by anyone.
You can also create new mailing lists by using the ┬½ Create Mailing List ┬╗ button. Clicking this button will take you to a page on which you can select the list of recipients based on their account types or member tags. Once you have selected the list of recipients, click on the "Save Selection as Mailing List" button to create the mailing list. You will be asked for the mailing list's name, which can be changed at a later time if needed. Once you have created your mailing list, you can change the settings (including the email address) by using the ┬½ Settings ┬╗ and ┬½ Allowed Senders ┬╗ buttons for the list.
The ┬½ Settings ┬╗ popup includes all the settings you may want to change for the list, including name and address as well as configurations for the 'From' and 'Reply-To'. You can also configure if senders should first confirm their email before it is actually sent (this is always enabled for email addresses that have never sent to the platform so as to prevent SPAM from sending to your open mailing lists) as well as what to do with emails sent by senders who are not part of the ┬½ Allowed Senders ┬╗. The ┬½ Read only ┬╗ setting is available only to administrators of the platform, and enabling it will prevent non-administrator users from making changes to the list. The ┬½ Allowed Senders ┬╗ allows you to select who will be able to send to the list and is by default set to ┬½ Officers only ┬╗ unless you opt for a different setting.
