How Campus-Wide aliases work

Student, Staff, and Faculty AliasesThe primary announcement lists are "campus-safety@lists.eckerd.edu", "staff-official@eckerd.edu", "faculty-official@eckerd.edu", "faculty-residential@eckerd.edu" and "faculty-pel@eckerd.edu". As the name implies, you will receive the official voice of the campus over these emails -- messages from the President, Deans, Campus Safety, Emergency Preparedness, and the like.

Conversation and other posts can be put on "staff-talk@eckerd.edu", "students-talk@lists.eckerd.edu", and "faculty-talk@eckerd.edu" These aliases are to be used for discussion among your peers. You may choose to opt-out and not receive the emails or get a digest version of this information.

For Residential Students use students@lists.eckerd.edu and for PEL Students, pelstudents@lists.eckerd.edu -- unless you are sending an invitation to an event (campus-events@lists.eckerd.edu) or information about clubs (clubs@lists.eckerd.edu).


Members of each "talk" alias can post directly to the alias in which they belong without any sort of delay, but those members outside the alias can not. For example, if you are a staff member and have not opted-out of the "staff-talk" alias, when you send an email to "staff-talk" it will be delivered. But, if you are a student and you want to send to the "faculty-talk" alias, it will go to the moderator of that alias first.

Messages not to send to students, faculty, and staff.
  • Multiple reminders. An event gets one announcement and one reminder.
  • Anything which has another list available. However, you can send one reminder to the main lists about these other lists.
  • If you have any doubt or questions of which list to use, please email your question to postmaster@eckerd.edu
