Every course at OSU has its own Exchange? e-mail address. These class addresses are actually e-mail ‘groups’ and contain the ONID e-mail address of every student in the course. An instructor can quickly and easily contact everyone currently enrolled in the class by sending an e-mail to the course address.
On the first day of each term the e-mail groups are automatically created from course lists in Banner. Instructors are automatically given permission to send and receive group e-mail. By default they are only allowed to do so from their OSU email address.
Please note: the members of a course are hidden in Outlook to protect student confidentiality.
The group address is the course number and section separated by underscores. For example, course BIO 101 section 2 would have an address of BIO_101_002@oregonstate.edu.
