Bulk E-mail Messaging

NYU E-mail Direct

NYU E-mail Direct is a bulk e-mail service through which preauthorized NYU faculty, staff, and administrators can request to send an e-mail message to a well-defined segment or segments of the University community. When properly used, mass e-mail is a powerful tool for conducting business swiftly, without generating large amounts of paper.

E-mail Direct will ensure that e-mail lists are kept confidential, systems are properly scheduled for orderly delivery, bounced e-mail and other anomalies are handled in a structured environment, and that mailings are coordinated across the University.  And since E-mail Direct is a fully web-based application, all information is supplied via our neatly organized desktop web interface. 

Before using or requesting access to E-mail Direct, please read the Policies and Guidelines for Sending Bulk E-mail at NYU. To sign up for an account or request assistance with a custom HTML E-mail Template please use the project request form.

Advanced Bulk E-mail Messaging

The Digital Communications Group can help with generating a single, more advanced, HTML e-mail blast, or a robust bulk message campaign.  These advanced features include details like mail-merged content within the message, more targeted recipient lists, and on-going subscribe and unsubscribe features.

Most units at the university do not need such complex features; however, there are times when they are useful.  To take advantage of these features and learn more about them from the DigiComm experts, submit a project request.
