**ATTENTION** Due to a change in Google’s terms of service, we are no longer provided unlimited storage with their service. As a result, we are having to implement quotas effective Sept 30, 2022. Each user will be provided up to 5Gbs of storage. We recognize that this new quota is very limiting, but other alternatives exist. All FAU users have 5 Tbs of storage available them through Microsoft’s OneDrive service. In addition, the use of Google’s Shared Drives is also impacted by the new terms.

A mailing list is a distribution list that offers a means of communicating electronically with a group of people through a single e-mail address without having to know who all of the members of the group are and all of their individual addresses. Whenever someone sends an e-mail message to a mailing list address, that message automatically goes out to everyone subscribed to the list. FAU is using Sympa mailing list manager. List creation is available for Faculty and Staff.

Mail lists allow people to join (subscribe) or leave (unsubscribe) them at any time. When you send a message to a mailing list, you address the email to the mailing list's name. When the mailing list server receives the message, it expands the name of the mailing list into each of the individual addresses currently on the list and it redirects your message to each of those people, called subscribers.
