If you send out a newsletter, event invitations, or other automated emails, be sure to let ITS know. Otherwise, your mailings may get caught in our spam filter (Postini). Systems like Constant Contact, Salsa Labs, and Pingg send messages that look spammier than individually-sent messages. More than one staff newsletter has been identified as junk mail on its way into our mailboxes, so that no UUA staffers ever received it. The same can happen to e-vites and e-vite RSVPs.

If you let ITS know what you are up to, we can add the address from which your messages will be sent to our ”whitelist” – the list of trusted senders, so your mail will arrive safely.
