What is it?

In the world of electronic communication CUADNET is the SUNYCUAD listserv. CUADNET provides subscribers the opportunity to easily communicate with all other SUNYCUAD subscribers, via electronic mail (e-mail).

This listserv is aimed at serving the internal communications needs of all of us within SUNYCUAD: alumni, development, college or university relations (media and public relations), publications (including web and electronic communications), marketing, and government relations.

 

How will CUADNET help me?

Frequently many of us run into a situation, problem or issue that our colleagues at other SUNY campuses may have dealt with in the past. CUADNET allows us to quickly send out an inquiry to see if any of our colleagues have dealt with this issue before and might be able to lend a bit of advice or helpful information.
CUADNET also allows us to inform each other of new developments in our areas of expertise, changes within our campuses and SUNY, and as a means to let others know about new campus job opportunities and professional development programs.

 

How do I subscribe?

You may already be a subscriber. You can tell by checking the "From:" box on any recent general e-mail message that was sent to you by a SUNYCUAD colleague on another campus. If you are not now a subscriber, you can join CUADNET by sending an e-mail m essage to:
listserv@ls.sysadm.suny.edu

Leave the subject line blank. In the body of the message please type (substituting your own first and last name for Jane Doe):

subscribe cuadnet Jane Doe
After you send in that message, the CUADNET listserv will ask me to confirm your subscription. Once I do that, you will receive a message indicating that you are now a subscriber.

 

How do I send an email to CUADNET?

You can reach all CUADNET subscribers with one e-mail message, sent to:
cuadnet@ls.sysadm.suny.edu
Please use the subject line to indicate which of your SUNYCUAD colleagues you are trying to reach, i.e. alumni, development, college or university relations (media relations), publications, or government relations. In this way, when we receive these messages we can quickly tell whether the message deals with our own specialty.
Hopefully, your message will find one or more individuals who can help, and they will reply via e-mail, phone, fax or whatever.

 

How do I know my message was received?

If you send a message to CUADNET, ordinarily you would not receive a copy of the message yourself. However, you can, indeed, establish a standard procedure with the listserv so that you will get copies of all future messages you send to CUADNET. Or, you can receive back just an acknowledgement from the listserv that your message was successfully distributed to all the other CUADNET subscribers.

In both cases a special e-mail needs to be sent to:
listserv@ls.sysadm.suny.edu
Leave the subject line blank.
To receive your own copy of all messages you send to CUADNET, type:
set cuadnet repro
To receive just a simple acknowledgement that your message was successfully distributed to the list, type:
set cuadnet ack
Keep in mind that you are free to establish either one, both, or neither option detailed above.

 

How do I respond to a CUADNET message?

The best way is to use the "reply" feature in your e-mail system. It will automatically get your message back to the person making the initial CUADNET inquiry.
Please only "Reply to Sender." In that way you avoid filling up everyone else's e-mail box with unwanted messages.

 

How can I suspend receiving CUADNET e-mail, perhaps while I'm on vacation?

If you wish to suspend the delivery of CUADNET e-mail messages to your mail box please address an e-mail to:
listserv@ls.sysadm.suny.edu
and in the body of the e-mail message enter the command:
set cuadnet nomail
To resume delivery of CUADNET messages, follow the same procedure, but in the body of the e-mail message enter the command:
set cuadnet mail
Or, if you prefer the option of receiving e-mail in digest form (see below), then in the body of the e-mail message enter the command:
set cuadnet digest

 

How can I arrange to have all of the day's CUADNET messages arrive in just a single e-mail, at one time each day (digest form)?

To accomplish this option, please address an e-mail to:
listserv@ls.sysadm.suny.edu
and in the body of the e-mail message enter the command:
set cuadnet digest

 

How do I cancel my subscription to CUADNET?

Follow the same instructions as indicated in #3, but in this case all you need to type in the body of the e-mail message is:
unsubscribe cuadnet

 

What do I do if my e-mail address is going to change?

You must unsubscribe from your old e-mail address (see above) and then, once you have your new e-mail address, you must re-subscribe in the exact same way as you did the first time. If you fail to unsubscribe before your e-mail address changes, please send me (kachicla@fitsuny.edu ) a separate e-mail message to that effect, so that I may delete your old e-mail address from the CUADNET subscriber list.
