There are a variety of different mailing lists that you will be subscribed to during your time with the CSE department. Some mailing lists will be specific to the CSE department, others will be from the university and others will be from various different groups. Some mailing lists will be lists that you are automatically subscribed to while you are a member of the CSE department and the university. Others are optional mailing lists that you can subscribe to and unsubscribe from as needed.
Role based mailing lists
In the CSE department, you will be automatically subscribed to a group mailing list based on what your role in the department is. For example, graduate students will be part of the csegrads mailing list. In addition to being part of a role based mailing list, everyone in the department is part of a global mailing list called csepeople. You may not subscribe or unsubscribe from the role based mailing list or the csepeople mailing list. For more details on the department's role based mailing lists, click here.
Talks mailing list
Another mailing everyone in the CSE department is subscribed to is the talks-cse mailing list. Talks are a crucial part of your life in the CSE department. It is important that you be aware of and attend some of these talks during your time with the CSE department. Although the talks-cse mailing list can be subscribed to and unsubscribed from by people outside the department who are interested in our talks, all members of the CSE department are automatically subscribed to the talks-cse mailing list with no option to unsubscribe.
Optional CSE department mailing lists
In addition to the above required mailing lists, there are numerous optional mailing lists. Some are related to specific research areas, others are of a more general nature.
You may want to subscribe to one or more of the following common mailing lists to keep you up to date on the various happenings in the CSE department. At the moment, you will need to contact firstname.lastname@example.org to subscribe to the mailing lists.

Campus mailing lists
The are a large number of mailing lists at the campus level. See the link below for a list of available campus mailing lists:
Also consider subscribing to the UCSD Notices and Fliers mailing lists.
Creating your own mailing lists
You may need to set up a mailing list for a variety of reasons. If you just need to mail out to a group for a single mailing, just sending a simple E-mail message may be sufficient for your needs. One thing that some people do to not disclose everyone's E-mail address is to put the recipient's E-mail addresses in the Bcc address area in your mail client instead of the To area.
Instructors can send E-mail to their students through the Class List on Blink. Instructors can also communicate with their students if they are using the TritonEd or Moodle learning management systems for their class.
Campus mailing lists can be created by following the instructions at http://blink.ucsd.edu/technology/email/services/lists/MM-admin.html.
If you would like a Google groups style mailing list, you can contact email@example.com to have such a list set up.
If you need to need to send out an event invitation, you can make use of Internet services such as evite (http://www.evite.com).
