Email and Listservs

Students have specific responsibilities when it comes to email, both in receiving and sending. Additionally, listservs are a vital communication tool in the Eller College. All undergraduate and most graduate students need to subscribe to a list as all important academic and registration information is sent over listservs, as well as information on club and program events, internships, scholarship opportunities and careers.

It is essential that all Eller students check their official University email account on a frequent and regular basis in order to stay current with UA- and College-related communications.

Be advised that you are responsible for all University information sent to you personally or over a listserv.

The advantage of using your University email is that you can read and send messages through CatMail, powered by Google. Log into CatMail.

The Undergraduate Programs Office has noticed that more and more students have begun to forward their University email to a variety of non-UA accounts. This has begun to present problems. College messages have been bounced back due to large text files and errors in students forwarding email, and the College has received several "Mailbox Full" and "User Unknown" messages. As a result, important academic information has not been received by several students. The most important reason for this policy is that we are able to verify through the University Information System that an email.arizona.edu account truly belongs to you. This adds enhanced security for providing you with information and ensuring that email we receive actually originated from your password-protected account.

Eller College will not be responsible for the handling of email by outside vendors. We only use email.arizona.edu accounts to communicate with students.

If you request assistance from advisors or any of the Undergraduate Programs staff via email, you will need to email us from your email.arizona.edu account to be assured a response. As a result, you can expect a more reliable source for receiving important messages from us.

Email is a mechanism for official communication within the University of Arizona and the Eller College. It is imperative that students receive and read communications from the University and College in a timely fashion. Be conscientious about using and maintaining your official University email account, and reviewing messages at least every other day.

All students need to subscribe to a list as all important academic and registration information is sent over listservs, as well as information on club events, internships, scholarship opportunities, and careers.

Registering for an Email Account

To maintain your list membership, you must have a valid email.arizona.edu account. To obtain an account, you must first have a UA NetID.

Then follow these steps:

  • Go to: https://account.arizona.edu/welcome
  • Click on the Create your UA Email and other UITS computer accounts link.
  • Follow the prompts to create an email account.
  • Continue the process, selecting your account name and password. Document those for future reference and store this information in a secure place to prevent unauthorized access to your account. Your account will be kept active as long as you are enrolled at UA, or under an official leave of absence.

Adding Yourself to an Eller College Listserv

The names of the lists are ACCT, BMGT, BNAD, BNEC, FIN, MIS, MKTG, OPER, and PRBN (Pre-business). Select the name which corresponds to your major. Students who don't yet have professional admission must select the PRBN listserv, as certain messages are sent only to this list. You may also subscribe to a "major" list, if you like.

To subscribe:

  • Access your catmail.arizona.edu account. You will be prompted for the account name and password which you selected when you set up your account.
  • Select Compose Mail to send a message to listserv@listserv.arizona.edu.
  • In the body of the message include the following text:

SUB listname Firstname Lastname

where "listname" is one of the lists given above and "Firstname Lastname" represents your first and last names. For example,

SUB MKTG John Doe

would subscribe John Doe to the list for marketing majors. Individual departments send information according to major; the College sends all information to all major lists.

Forwarding Your UA Email to a Non-UA Account

We encourage you not to forward your UA email account to other email providers (i.e., Gmail, Yahoo, etc.) as often times our messages do not forward easily. Since the listserv is a College-wide communication tool and a bulk message, other email providers often kick back our messages or immediately send it to your trash folders. We hope that you receive all important messages and encourage you to check your UA email account daily.


 

To Remove Yourself from a List

Send a message to listserv@listserv.arizona.edu with the message: SIGNOFF listname where "listname" is the name of the list you are currently on.
