Email Policy

Email is an essential component of day-to-day communication. It’s how we reach our colleagues and reach out to our audiences.

When we communicate electronically, we create and reinforce a professional persona. We act as representatives of our departments and organizations. We reflect the values of Mizzou. Respect, professionalism, thoughtful word choice and careful proofreading can help us put our best foot forward.

Mass email policy

If you plan to send an email message to a large targeted audience, please refer to the university’s mass email policy.

The policy applies to using the University of Missouri email system to send unsolicited email to more than 250 internal or external email addresses. MU Administrative Services reviews all mass email requests. If approved, each request is forwarded to the Division of Information Technology for distribution. The MU email system automatically blocks mass email messages that have not been approved by Administrative Services and DoIT.

MU’s mass email policy addresses the origin, content and execution of mass email. Please review the policy before sending mass email.
