Google Groups: For Email List Managers

Google group managers, learn about Google groups.

Google Groups

UCSD uses Google groups for creating mailing lists. Using the Google groups interface, you can configure dozens of options for any mailing lists you manage. Google automatically reduces spam and keeps mailing lists clean.

Getting Started

Acceptable Use Policies

All Google groups must have at least one owner who is a current UC San Diego student, faculty, or staff and have an email address listed.

Google Group owners agree to properly maintain their lists. This includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Removing invalid member email addresses
  • Tending to held messages or subscription requests at least weekly
  • Limiting the amount of spam that is distributed to list members

These procedures are important because they help keep email flowing smoothly and keep us from being identified as a source of spam. If list owners do not follow these procedures, they risk having their list disabled. Information Technology Services will issue advance warning to list owners before disabling the list.
