Mailing Lists

Why am I subscribed?

If you ever took a course here you probably have a CS account. When you sign up for a CS account you get cnet@cs.uchicago.edu email address, which we automatically forward to your cnet@uchicago.edu address. We then subscribe you (cnet@cs.uchicago.edu) to the cs@mailman.cs.uchicago.edu mailing list. As a CS computer account holder we need a method to communicate with you. Mailing lists are one of the best ways to do so.

Unsubscribing

If you no longer want to receive the emails from any list in our department there is a link located at the bottom of every email sent out by the list host that allows you to unsubscribe. The link you are looking for will look something like this:

  https://mailman.cs.uchicago.edu/mailman/listinfo/cs

On the bottom of this page you will see a text box:

The Tricky part

This is where it gets a bit tricky because depending on what time your account was created we will have used your cnetid@cs.uchicago.edu (auto forward to cnetid@uchicago.edu) or cnetid@uchicago.edu email address. If you are unsure which email to use you will need to try both. (Try cnetid@cs.uchicago.edu before trying cnetid@uchicago.edu).

After entering in your email you will be presented with a screen where you will be able to actually click the button to unsubscribe.

Click this and you will be emailed a confirmation email. Click the link in said email and you are done. If you did not receive a confirmation email, you did not enter the email address that was used to subscribe you to the list.
