Office 365 (Outlook) - Distribution Lists

Distribution lists are groups of individuals that appear in the global address list in Outlook.  There are distribution lists for categories of personnel, as well as departments/offices. To get to the global address list, go to the Find section in the ribbon and type in an entry in the search field OR double-click on Address Book to see the full content.

As part of the email migration, all former public distribution lists were recreated in Outlook, according to a new naming convention.  These replace entries, such as -Admin and -PAE.  The new naming conventions were adopted for consistency to simplify and streamline the groups within the global address list.   

There are different types of Distribution Lists: Campus-wide, Departmental, Committee, Project, and Other.

A new distribution list can be requested via the Campus Technologies Account Request form, which can be found on the portal - (Note: This form opens best in Internet Explorer)
