There are two different e-mail options available to student organizations: E-mail alias and MajorDomo Listserv.

E-mail alias

  • When should I use this?
    • When the list of recipients is fairly small (five or fewer). All recipients must use a Towson e-mail account. This is a great communication device for use outside of the organization. It is essentially a forwarding address.
  • How do I get one?
    • Go to the SGA office (UU 226) and pick up the Student Organization E-mail Request form, or get one online under downloadable files. Be sure to have it signed by your advisor before you bring it to the office.
    • Then what? OTS will contact you to finalize the request.

MajorDomo Listserv

  • When should I use this?
    • This is normally used when the list of recipients is fairly large (more than five) and can include a mixture of students, faculty, staff and external (non-Towson University) addresses. This is a great communication device for use within the organization. It acts like a discussion group, so if someone within your organization of 20 members sent an email to the list, all 20 members will receive the email.
  • How do I get one?
    • To request a MajorDomo distribution list, contact the OTS Help Center at helpcenter@towson.edu with:
      • Towson e-mail address and phone number of requestor
      • Owner of list (name and e-mail address), if other than requestor
      • Distribution list name (ex. CGS-l; the lowercase “L” is required)
      • Do you want the e-mail alias option? (This will allow mail to be sent to CGS@towson.edu rather than CGS-l@lists.towson.edu.)
      • Short description of list (fifty words or fewer)
      • Then what? OTS will contact you to finalize the request.
