Bulk emailing and university regulated lists

What is bulk email?

Email with the same or similar content sent to at least 100 recipients within 24 hours

 

Is it possible to send a bulk e-mail from a personal computer mail program?

No! It is forbidden to send bulk email  from a private HujiMail account. Such results of action could put the University on "black lists," causing rejection of any mail leaving the institution, thereby causing great harm to the university community.

 

Can bulk email be sent for academic and administrative purposes (even to more than 200 recipients)?

Only through the university's distribution systems.

 

How to send bulk email for academic / administrative purposes?
