Zendto: Sending and Receiving files without using E-mail
All registered staff and students at Essex are given an email account on the University's central servers. The recommended email program for use on-campus is Microsoft Outlook 2007, although we also provide Pine on Unix. For email access off-campus, we again recommend Microsoft Outlook in Corporate Mode (2003 or newer) or Outlook Web Access but you can generally use whatever email program you want (at your own risk). See setting up your own computer or mobile to access your University e-mail account for specific details.
Mailing lists are used to send mail to multiple recipients. See these webpages about the Local mailing lists, which allow you to examine and modify your membership of lists, see what lists are available, and who is on lists of which you are a member. We limit the size of messages which may be sent to our lists to 100,000 bytes, which is sufficient for most text messages. If you need to send a message longer than this, such as one that contains images, it is better to set up a webpage and email only the URL.
There is also the National Academic Mailing List Service, a mailing list service run by the wider UK academic community at JISCmail.
