Email Distribution List Management Tool

VUMC IT has developed a Distribution List Management (DLM) Tool as a temporary solution until the Medical Center has moved to its new Directory Services environment.

This tool allows Group Owners to add and remove users to their distribution lists. Coming soon, version 2.0 can:

  • Allow groups that are owners of other groups to modify (add/remove) users
  • Add a group to a group (nested groups)
  • Timeout a session (after receiving a warning message)

How can I get a VUMC email account?

All new VUMC employees are issued an email account before their first day. New employees use their email address and the AccessVU site to claim their identity within the VUMC system (detailed instructions can be found here).

  • VUMC email accounts for staff expire the last day of employment.
  • VUMC email accounts for faculty expire four months from the last day of employment.
