Who's included in a group? 

If you want to see what groups or people are included in a mail-enabled group, here are 2 ways: 

  • Open a new email, and add the group in question to the To: line.  Then, right-click on the group, and select “Outlook Properties”.  A window will open up that will show you the member groups and/or people.  Double-click on any of member groups, and a new window will appear for that group.
  • We also have a spreadsheet that lists the “roll-up” groups, and the groups that each roll-up group contains: SCS Email Groups

Outlook on Windows:

The easiest way to access the SCS, ChBE and Chemistry personnel groups is to click on the "To", "Cc" or "Bcc" button (in orange, below) in a new message in Outlook.  It does not matter which one you choose - you'll have an opportunity to add addresses to the appropriate line (Bcc) later on.  
NOTE: If you don't see the Bcc: field, click on Options then on Bcc in the ribbon.

Clicking on the "To", "Cc" or "Bcc" buttons will bring up the Address book.  Be sure that you're using the "Global Address List" as shown below.
