Update Electronic Distribution List (EDL) Mailing List Addresses User Guide

As part of the email migration process from UnivMail to MacMail, you are reminded to use the standard email address. The EDL service will continue to function after migration, however, if you have fully qualified email addresses such as macid@univmail.mcmaster.ca or macid@univmail.cis.mcmaster.ca, you will need to update the list members email addresses to the standard email format macid@mcmaster.ca.

At the end of the MacMail project the UnivMail email service will be decommissioned and fully qualified email addresses (as macid@univmail.mcmaster.ca or macid@univmail.cis.mcmaster.ca) will no longer be accepted.
