Departments wishing to have a generic e-mail address that people can use to contact them, have two options: A Public Folder or A Distribution Group. Both of these methods tie-in to your already existing University e-mail account (no need to set up a separate username and password), however each method has pros and cons for its use.
If you are looking for a generic e-mail address that can be used to send notifications to multiple people, please see our information on the Sympa Mailing List server.
