LISTSERV & Email Lists

The following email lists have been created to allow distribution of email to groups within the Warrington College of Business. Before using the LISTSERV mailing lists, please take a moment to review the guidelines of use.

Guidelines for Use of Email Lists

  • Email lists shall be used to facilitate College business. These lists may not be used for commercial, personal, or political messages.
  • The University of Florida’s Acceptable Use Policy must be followed by anyone utilizing these lists.
  • Messages submitted to these lists must originate from the University of Florida’s email domain. Submissions from email addresses which do not end in “” will not be accepted.
  • To properly distribute email messages to a wide audience, choose the smallest list that will adequately reach the intended audience.
  • Avoid using multiple addresses in the address lines (To:, cc: and bcc:) when sending to large email lists. This may result in multiple copies of the same message, and may be inappropriately labeled as a “spam.”

Course Mailing Lists

Each semester, a list of sections for the department along with the instructor email address (as listed in the Warrington directory) for those sections, is provided to Department Office Managers via an on-line tool. During the set-up period, office managers may add additional email addresses, such as TAs, office staff, or alternate faculty email addresses. This information is forwarded to UF Computing and Networking Services (CNS) to create the mailing lists.

Mailing lists are established for faculty & TA use for every section of every course offered by the college.

To send an email to your class or class section(s), follow the address formatting examples below for both standard and electronic platform courses.

  • Standard Courses:
    This sends a message to a specific section within course.term-section-L@lists.ufl.eduEXAMPLE:
  • Mailing to Multiple Sections:
    Classes with more than one section will have a separate email address for each section. To send mail to multiple sections, enter each section address separated by a comma in the “To:” field. You can also create a local distribution list in your email client that has the multiple sections in it.
    EXAMPLE: You teach 3 sections of ACG 1234. The section numbers are 0015, 2045, and 0002. To email your entire class, you need to send an email to:,,

GatorLink: GatorLink addresses are the default for all students. Please tell your students to check their GatorLink accounts daily. If students prefer to use a different email account, they must modify their forwarding address on the GatorLink web site. If students indicate they are not getting mailings it is almost always because their GatorLink is not configured properly or their mail is improperly forwarded. You can submit a Help Ticket to explore reasons a student may not be receiving course mail.

List Use Rights: Instructors and class coordinators can email all sections of their class. TA’s can email their assigned sections only.

Recipients: When you send a message to the assigned class email address, it goes to every student enrolled in your class.

Replies & Forwards: Any message that anyone else tries to post or reply to will come back to you only, not to the entire list. You can then forward it to the entire list if you deem appropriate.

Error Reports: After you send a message, you may receive a series of Error Reports, which, indicate bad addresses that students have provided to GatorLink. You may want to alert them to correct these with GatorLink. The error reports may continue for a number of days as GatorLink continues to try to deliver the mail to the bad address.
