Managing email lists and groups

There are currently two Oxford systems which hold email distribution list for the physics department. The first one is based on the department's active directory (AD) system. This is intended for lists that contain almost exclusively Oxford Physics staff and students. Because this system is closely integrated with other departmental services, lists can be automatically populated based on sub-department, location, role etc etc. The other system is the University's maillist server.

How to get your nexus mailbox to forward OOO messages

Physics users are currently split over two email systems, the Physics system and the IT services Nexus system. This is a temporary situation as we expect to be fully migrated to Nexus by the summer of 2018.

So users still on the Physics system may want to make the following adjustments as a short term workaround.
