No, we don't offer our own mail services, email is handled by ZEDAT. However, every user at the physics departments gets an email address of the form
<username>@physik.fu-berlin.de, that is forwarded to the ZEDAT address. Furthermore we offer several mailing lists.
There are several mailing lists at the physics department. The most important ones are:
- email@example.com, going to all the department's students,
- firstname.lastname@example.org, going to all employees,
- email@example.com, going to everyone at the department, and
- firstname.lastname@example.org, going to the student union (Fachschaftsinitiative).
All lists are moderated. Please write your mails to the narrowest possible circle of recipients as the lists are extremely large. The all list should be used as rarely as possible. Mails with attachments larger than 500kB will be rejected outright.
The studies list is the right list for announcements about available master thesis topics and PhD positions.
Also, every group has their own group mailing list
As long as you are a student at the Physics department, you will be automatically subscribed to the studies mailinglist. Along important mails from the department, e.g. about teaching, this list also receives announcements on events for students and requests (job offers, survey participation).
If you have left the department and no longer wish to receive these mails, you ask for your Physics account to be deleted by writing a mail to email@example.com from your ZEDAT address. This will also lead to your removal from the studies mailinglist. Unfortunately, we are not informed about such changes automatically, so that we normally only delete accounts when the accompanying ZEDAT account is deleted.
