There is an e-mail list devoted to e-mail administration in higher


It has been a little slow lately, but there are a lot of good
people/institutions on the list.

Subject: [unisog] OT - e-mail for students

Slightly off-topic, but please pass this on to a relevant mail admin if you
think appropriate.

We're a mid-sized .edu (~13,000 students) and are looking for doing
something with their e-mail to improve performance and appeal.  Students as
a group seem to think a web-based client is the only way to deal with their
e-mail.  I disagree, but that's why I'm asking...

I'm looking for experiences, good or bad, of admins who have done student
e-mail on a unix platform with a web-based client as the primary (or even
only) access to the mail.  We need reasonable performance and a somewhat
featureful client (folders on server, easily distinguish seen/unseen
messages, etc.)  If you can share what you've done in this vein that was
successful, great.  Or if you can give pointers as to things to avoid, that
would be appreciated as well.

Answer directly if you (and the list moderators?) prefer.  Thanks!

It's much more important to know what you don't know than what you do know!
