Sending mass email to Deakin students and staff
Mass email is a tool that can be used to facilitate effective communication to specific cohorts of Deakin students and staff. Executive approval is required.
Mass email from Executive areas
Your Executive Office can send mass emails to students and staff on behalf of their area. Please refer to the Organisational Chart to confirm the executive in your area.
Mass email from Research area
Deakin research students conducting human research projects can use the mass email service. Approvals from both the Deakin Research Supervisor and the Ethics Committee are required.
Daily limits to external recipients
The limit on the number of individual recipients for outgoing (external to Deakin) email is now 10,000 per day (per sender). If the number of recipients you send to within a single 24-hour period exceeds the limit of 10,000, your account will be locked for a 24 hour period and your messages will be quarantined.
Any additional queries in relation to the mass email process should be directed to the IT Service Desk.
