UNT's Group E-Mail Guidelines Revised
By Dr. Maurice Leatherbury, Executive Director of Information Technology and Academic Computing
The Information Resource Council and the Vice Presidents have approved a revision to UNT's Group E-Mail Guidelines, guidelines that provide guidance to those who use GroupWise's "UNT GW Directory" list to broadcast messages to the whole campus. The new guidelines can be found at http://www.unt.edu/irc/policy/EveryoneMessageGuidelines.htm
These guidelines request that you be very sparing about sending mail to the campus at large. Many people consider such messages to be "spam." Messages sent to everyone should be of sufficient general interest to the UNT community that you'd send them as printed memoranda if E-mail wasn't available.
You can filter everyone messages (to put them in a special folder, or to automatically delete them, for example) within GroupWise. Instructions on how to do that can be found at http://ncs.unt.edu/rules/folder_rule.html
Please adhere to these guidelines when sending messages to the "everyone" list.
