How Can I Find a User's E-mail Address Inside of Dartmouth?

There are three different ways to get people's e-mail addresses.

Click the To field in an e-mail message window and bring up the Global Address List. Within this search window, you can use the Name Only or More Columns options.

Am I limited in the number of recipients I can include on a message?

Blitz system users are limited to 500 people per message. They are also limited to 10,000 recipients in any 24 hour window. However, if you need to send mail to more than 1,000 addresses in one day which are not Dartmouth addresses, please contact the IT Service Desk (Help Desk) first. We will recommend other systems for doing this. If someone sends mail to thousands of addresses that at Dartmouth, many Internet service providers will block all mail coming from Dartmouth because it looks like we are allowing spam to be send from our accounts. Use of these alternative tools prevents every account at Dartmouth from becoming blocked due to one account sending lots of mail.
