Email Use Policy

Revision Date: August 24, 2005
Version: 1.00

You can lose your UIC computing privileges if you send offensive or inappropriate electronic mail.

  • You may send almost any kind of electronic mail you wish so long as you know your recipient will not be offended.
  • You may not send SPAM, solicitations, or any other forms of "junk" mail. That sort of mail violates not only polite conduct, but also many long established electronic mail rules.
  • You may not send chain letters of any kind.
  • If you are ever unsure about sending a particular message it is probably best not to send it.
  • Sending an excessive amount of email from a computer that is not on the network may result in your account being suspended.
  • When sending email to a large number of recipients it is best to use a listserv email list to ensure your email will not be rejected by exceeding the maximum limit of recipients.
