The name of an e-mail list is email@example.com, where 'xxx' is the course number. CMPT 354, for example, has the list name cmpt-354 AT sfu DOT ca.
In the case of multiple sections, -d1, -d2, -e1, -c1, etc. is added to the name as appropriate. e.g. cmpt-101-d1 AT sfu DOT ca, cmpt-101-d2 AT sfu DOT ca.
Log on to your SFU Account Management web page to check and manage your mail list memberships.
Please e-mail helpdesk. In some cases the problem must be handled by SFU IT Services (help AT sfu DOT ca), but helpdesk AT cs DOT sfu DOT ca will forward it to them if necessary.
For CMPT courses, only instructors and TAs can send to the course mail list.
If you are a TA of a course but could not send to the course maillist, please e-mail helpdesk asap - just be sure to indentify yourself as the TA of the course within the message.
All CMPT courses' mail lists are archived, you could always check these archives by click the link at the "Maillist archive" column on the Course Home Page Index and Maillists page.
For the messages sent to all CSIL users, you may visit this archive page.
For the messages sent to all CMPT undergraduate students, you may visit this archive page.
*IMPORTANT*: do NOT forward your SFU email to anything else. The benefit does not cover the chaos it creates. Remember: do NOT forward your SFU email to anything else.
