E-mail Mailing Lists

An e-mail mailing list (or alias) will allow you to send a message to a number of recipients using only a single e-mail address. For example, if you address a message to alias_name@stolaf.edu, it will be received by every member of the mailing list. Some mailing lists are automatically generated from administrative data; others are created and maintained by individual users.
