Office 365 Distribution Lists (also known as Distribution Groups) are generated using WPI data. These include lists of all employees, majors lists, and advising lists.


  • The list name complies with the WPI Mailing List Policy
  • The list name is prefixed with dl- for example: dl-voting-faculty
  • Changes are performed by IT, including list creation, owner and moderator changes, and list deletion


  • These lists are not visible in the Global Address List (GAL) to maintain privacy.
  • Distribution Lists created from mailinglists that existed prior to August 2018 will receive mail sent to the new address as well as the prior address
  • Existing lists may have one or more moderators.
