Email Aliases

Email aliases are, essentially, forwarding addresses which are used to forward email to specific recipients. This is typically set up for Departments, organizations etc (ex. csc@stevens.edu). All email addressed to csc@stevens.edu is received by the mail server and is sent to all specified recipients. An email alias should have no more than 10 recipients, all of which must be @stevens.edu addresses.

Request an Email Alias

To request an email alias, use the IT Helpdesk Ticketing system by logging in to myStevens or simply send the request to helpdesk@stevens.edu from your Stevens email address.

Listserv

Listserv is the Stevens service that provides users the ability to create mailing lists for various needs. Clubs, organizations, and other miscellaneous groups can have a mailing list that will be able to reach any email address. The mailing lists can be easily configured, and have many customizations available. Mailing lists can have an unlimited amount of recipients. Recipients are not restricted by a specific domain, as such, any email (ex. @yahoo.com or @gmail.com) can be listed as a recipient.
