Questions and answers

I have received email from a Sussex mailing list to which I belong, but the email has nothing to do with the mailing list's purpose. What can I do about this?

You should contact the administrator of the mailing list to report the problem.   To find out how to do this, see FAQ 1556.

If you receive unwanted or inappropriate email from a Sussex mailing list, please do not reply to the list to complain about it, because by doing so you yourself will be misusing the email service.

All staff and students must abide by the University's Regulations for the use of Information and Communication Technology.  We encourage you to read these regulations.

In particular, read our own advice about improper use of mailing lists.
