Email notifications now accepting groups and aliases

Filed under: Bug fix,System Update — Richy @ 9:16 am

Previously the system would only allow users to enter valid email addresses that were linked to an individual user, this however meant that aliases and groups were not accepted as they weren’t linked to anyone.

Aliases are linked to another email, and groups behave essentially like an alias; pointing to a number of different emails.

Emails

The system has now been modified to allow for these unknown emails. The way it works is if any email address is entered that the system cannot look-up it will add @essex.ac.uk to the end. This will require you to make sure the email you have entered is correct but should make it much easier to add people to your email lists.

If you have experienced any issues or bugs please email the Learning Technology Team at ltt@essex.ac.uk with full details of the issue.
