Sending an Email Message to the Einstein Community
One mailing list is maintained on the Einstein mail server that can be used for broadcast messages. A broadcast message is one that goes to every e-mail address on the server. That means all staff, faculty, students, and certain outside people who are entitled to get an e-mail address on the college mail server. There is no way to limit a broadcast mailing to a subset of this list. On the other hand a broadcast message will not reach people within the college who get their e-mail from a privately operated mail server such as the one operated by the Biochemistry Department.
Be aware that many people hate to receive unsolicited e-mail ("spam"). Your message no doubt is important to you but it will be regarded as an unwelcome intrusion by a majority of the recipients.
A broadcast message is only appropriate to convey information that is relevant to most people in the college community. It may not be used for any commercial purpose, to express a point of view, or to advertise an event unless it is relevant to at least half of the community.
A broadcast email does not get delivered instantly, so it is not suitable for emergency notices. Whenever possible, delivery will be accomplished within 24 hours.
If you want to send a broadcast message, follow these instructions:
- Send the *exact text* of the message to firstname.lastname@example.org. Do not include extraneous text such as "Please send this to everybody."
- Put the text you want to appear as the subject of your broadcast on the subject line of your message. Before being broadcast, your subject line will be altered by inserting "**AECOM BROADCAST** " before the subject text you provide.
- You must include at least your name, e-mail address and Einstein phone number within the body of the message. A broadcast mailing can not be sent anonymously. Your e-mail address will not appear on the "From: " line so people won't be able to auto-reply to you.
- Write the message as plain text, not formatted text. You can not use colors, font changes, bold, underline, etc., only plain text. Write it with either a text editing program such as Notepad or with Eudora (not with MS Word).
- You may not include an attachment or a picture.
- Print the text and proofread it more than once to be sure it isn't misleading and doesn't contain spelling or punctuation errors. Have someone else proofread it too. Your message will not be edited and mistakes will not be fixed. Remember your message will go to 3000 people including many who don't know you and have never heard of your department. If your message contains an e-mail address or a web site address (a URL), test it by copy-and-paste to be positive it is correct. A mistake could be embarrassing.
