Google Groups

ILS has been moving many of our email lists over to Google Groups.  Due to the large number, we have been doing this in groups of 20-30 over the course of the summer.  When you are part of a list that has been moved over, your list administrator will send you a message notifying you of the change.

Course lists, residence hall lists, major/minor lists, class year lists, and other lists that are automatically generated have NOT been moved over to Google Groups as of yet.  We are actively investigating what it will take to do so.  When that time comes we will be sure to give faculty, students, and staff plenty of advance notice.

Email List Change Over

This morning the staff and faculty mail lists were moved to Google Groups.  As previously announced, the major change is that the e-mail address for the new lists now end with @groups.bates.edu

The new e-mail for the faculty list is:

faculty@groups.bates.edu

The new e-mail for the staff list is:

staff@groups.bates.edu

All subscribed users have been moved over.  You do not need to re-subscribe to this list.
