Broadcast Messages and Email

Procedure for sending broadcast messages

If you would like to broadcast a message to the entire campus, please contact the Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance office at: VCA& If the message is approved, the VC A&F office will send the message for you using the broadcast email system.

Members of the university are not allowed to send email messages to all users as this may cause the email system to slow down and in some cases come to a halt, thereby disrupting the business of others.

If you receive an email message that has been addressed to ALL Users on campus or via the broadcast system, please do not "reply-to-all" as this would cause further congestion on the network.

If a member of the UMass Boston community does not follow the proper protocol for broadcasting messages, his/her email account may be disabled and the computer disconnected from the network.
