Mass mailer

 

The mass mailer enables organisational units and subunits of the University of Vienna to send e-mails to a predefined group of recipients (students, employees) – for example, newsletters or other information mails. The recipients cannot contact each other via the mass mailer. They are selected based on certain individual characteristics (such as degree programme, affiliation with a particular department) before the e-mail is sent.

Form Massmailer-Bereich verwalten (Managing mass mailer, in German)

Requesting a mass mailer

Use the form Massmailer-Bereich verwalten (Managing mass mailer, in German)

Every organisational unit authorised to send will receive a mass mailer space configured to their requirements. For the list of recipients (Channel) the ZID uses characteristics saved in the staff directory of the University of Vienna.

  • Fill in the form as follows.
  • Be as precise as possible when specifying the desired group of recipients (for example, degree programme codes, department numbers, etc.).
  • Setting up the mass mailer takes some time. Schedule a preparation period of at least a week (especially at the beginning of the semester). In case of uncertainties or complex database requests, it can take even longer to set up the mass mailer.

You will be notified as soon as the mass mailer has been set up or if any details are still missing.
