Managing Mailing Lists

Managing Mailing Lists

Managing mailing lists can be done using the Windows version of the Microsoft Outlook Desktop client, or through the Web Page interface. There is currently no method to manage mailing lists using the Macintosh Outlook Desktop client, so for Macintosh users, the Web Page interface is the only option for managing the mailing lists. Only Wittenberg e-mail addresses can be added to campus mailing lists.
