After changing your IU email address, update IU List mailing lists that you subscribe to or sponsor

On this page:


Overview

If you change your primary Indiana University email address, and you subscribe to or own any IU List mailing lists, you should update your email address in IU List. Although incoming mail sent to your old email address will still be delivered, if you do not update your email address in IU List:

  • You won't be able to send email to any discussion lists that restrict posts to list subscribers.
  • You'll be unable to use the IU List web interface to make changes for any lists you own or subscribe to under your old email address. These lists will not appear on the "My lists" page.

Before you begin

Important:

On May 16, 2021, UITS will complete an upgrade to the IU List service. All lists will be migrated from their temporary pilot domains back to the standard campus domains (for example, list.iupui.edu).

To prepare for the final migration, UITS asks list owners to refrain from making changes to lists from Friday, May 14 at 5pm through Sunday, May 16 at 9am. Any changes made during this time will be lost.

For more, see About the 2021 IU List upgrade.

Before you change your primary email address, you should verify your IU List password by logging into the service. If you do not have a separate IU List login, create one. Note that if the campus domain in question has been migrated to the pilot domain, you will need to set your password again (though you can set it to the same thing), even if you remember it. See Set, change, or reset your IU List password.

After you have changed your email address (see Avoid service interruptions when changing the primary email address for a personal or group computing account at IU and Change your primary email address and set delivery for your email addresses), you can update your address with IU List.

Notes:
  • If you are subscribed to or sponsor lists on more than one campus domain, during the migration, you will need to update your address in domains that have been migrated to the pilot environment separately from those that are still using the legacy interface.
  • If you have forgotten or haven't set your IU List password on the domain you need to migrate lists for, but you already have changed to your new email address, and your old email account doesn't redirect to the new one, you will not be able to update your email address automatically through IU List. Contact IU List Support.

Update your mailing lists

If your list has been migrated to the pilot domain, use the first set of instructions below.

You'll know your list has been migrated to the pilot environment if the webpage looks like the following screenshot, and the web address is in the form pilot.list.campus.edu.

  1. On the appropriate campus IU List website, in the upper right, click Login locally, and log in using your old email address and your IU List password in the upgraded system (if different from your IU List password in the legacy system). Do not use IU Login.
    Campus IU List web interface
    IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
    IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
    IU East https://list.iue.edu/
    IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
    IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
    IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
    IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
    IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
    University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
  2. Click your name or email address in the upper right, and select My preferences.
  3. Under "Changing your email address", enter your new email address and then click Change Email.
  4. A message will be sent to your new email account, with a link to confirm the change. Click the link in the email message.
  5. Repeat this process for each pilot campus domain in which you have IU List subscriptions.

    If you are subscribed to lists across numerous domains, IU List administrators can make the change for all domains at once. Contact IU List Support to submit a ticket for assistance.

For any campus domains that have not yet been migrated:

  1. Log into any campus IU List website that is still on the legacy interface, using your old email address and your old IU List password (if you set a different one in the pilot domain). Do not use IU Login.

  2. In the center of the top bar, click Your preferences.
  3. Under "Changing your email address", enter your new email address and then click Change Email.
  4. A message will be sent to your new email account, with a link to confirm the change. Click the link in the email message. IU List will automatically update your email address in all subscriptions, list ownerships, and moderator settings, for all campus domains that have not yet been migrated.
