Custom E-mail Listserv

E-mail listserv lists are a mechanism to distribute information amongst a group of users via e-mail. Lists are highly configurable by the requester, who takes on the role of “List Manager”. Unlike some other e-mail distribution options, recipients of the list may be users within the HWS community (i.e. user@hws.edu) or generic Internet users (i.e. user@gmail.com).

E-mail Client Access

HWS e-mail may be accessed at https://webmail.hws.edu in most Web browsers on any Internet connection. This is the method that IT Services recommends for most users, especially students.

HWS e-mail may also be accessed from an e-mail client such as Outlook, Entourage, or Mail or from many mobile devices such as Androids and iPhones.

E-mail Storage

Students, faculty, and staff are allotted 20 GB of e-mail storage space. If that space is exceeded, the user will be unable to send or receive messages, while the mailbox will remain open. Users are encouraged to check their mail storage periodically to avoid mail delivery problems.

HWS Distribution List or LISTSERV

E-mail is a tool that all members of the community use on a daily basis in carrying out their teaching, research, and operational activities. The HWS distribution lists and LISTSERVs were created to provide faculty and staff with more options, consistency, and clarity in communication to specific groups.

The e-mail distribution lists and LISTSERV e-mail-based discussion lists are a means to separate communication channels for announcements from electronic spaces for discussion.

Junk E-mail Prevention

Students, faculty, and staff can manage junk e-mail filtering by logging in to http://antispam.hws.edu with HWS username and password.

Secure/Large File Transfer

Students, faculty, and staff can use the HWS Large File Transfer system to send documents and files that are too large for normal e-mail attachments. This system allows sending files up to 2GB by e-mailing a link to a secure download Web site that the recipient can click to access.
