Currently, HKU departments send a request for bulk e-mail to Computer Centre with the following information:
To improve on the submission process of bulk e-mail requests and to minimise delay due to incomplete information provided by the department in their requests, Computer Centre has developed a bulk e-mail request system which allows HKU departments to submit their requests via a web-based interface. In this way, the most essential information can be captured at source and completeness of information can be ensured.
Effective from May 3, 2000, the web-based Bulk E-mail Service is available within the "Computer Centre " option of the "Intranet System for Staff" and can only be accessed by staff who have a "bulk e-mail submission" account. Meanshile departments interested in using the Bulk E-mail Service can submit to Computer Centre a "bulk e-mail submission account" to authorize their staff to use the system. All bulk e-mail requests are regulated by the Computer Centre's Bulk E-mail Guidelines, a copy of which is included in this Computer News.
For details of how to apply for a "bulk e-mail submission account" and instructions on the use of the system, please refer to the URL: http://www.its.hku.hkoffice/forms/bulkemail_guide.htm.
