FAQ: Psychology Email Distribution Lists

Frequently Asked Questions: UCLA Psychology Email Distribution List

Departmental email lists can be found at the Distribution Lists link on our website, and are only accessible to users with valid UCLA login credentials.  Please note that lists contain either an “@em.ucla.edu” or an “@lists.ucla.edu” address.  The host name em.ucla.edu denotes a list that is hosted in Enterprise Messaging, and the host name lists.ucla.edu indicates a list that is hosted in the BOL Mailing List Service called Mailman.

How can I send a message to one of these lists?

In most cases you must be the member of a list in order to send a message to that list.  Exceptions can be made.  Please contact the list owner for more information.

How can I see the members of a list?

Lists held in the campus Enterprise Messaging (EM) system are shared distribution lists.  EM users can open up a list name in Outlook to see the membership.  Non-EM users should contact the list owner to view list membership.

Please contact the list owner to view Mailman list membership.

How can I get a message to everyone in the department?

Most messages sent to all members of the department are sent from an announcement email address through the Chair’s Office.  Messages of wide interest or importance are sent to the list called psych-all-lists@em.ucla.edu. You must be a member of some other departmental list in order to receive the messages sent to psych-all-lists@em.ucla.edu.  Individual email addresses are not subscribed.
