Welcome to the University of Bath Community Mailing List Service. This mailing list service is provided as-is and should be used for the creation and management of non-corporate, non-strategic e-mail lists. Use this service to create mailing lists for interest groups, societies, clubs and other types of formal and informal group that may contain both @bath.ac.uk and other external non-bath e-mail addresses.


Mailing lists must be maintained to ensure compliance with University Policy and other legal requirements such as GDPR:

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) considerations:

List Owners are responsible for ensuring that they have identified a lawful basis for the processing of the data following University guidance - https://www.bath.ac.uk/guides/data-protection-guidance/#gathering-data. This service is based on the Sympa software product which imposes some technical limits on how subscribers and their data can be managed:

  1. Sympa does not directly record whether a subscriber gave consent to be added to a list or not. List owners who manage subscriptions and rely on individual consent will have to maintain this information in their own way.
  2. Sympa allows individual subscribers to remove themselves from a list. Where a list owners rely on individual consent the list should be configured to make these options clear in every email by configurating the message footers in the list options.


Logging In

Many functions in Sympa require you to identify yourself to the system by logging in, using the login form in the top right menu.
