Subject: "UCLA Emergency" mailing list

TYPE OF NOTICE	other

IMPORTANCE	minor

DATE		starting tomorrow (2003-01-24)

IMPACT		You may receive duplicate e-mail messages.

USERS SHOULD	save duplicate messages and notify "help" so that they
		can be removed from the list causing the duplication.

AFFECTS		potentially all UCLA users, but most likely very few

DETAILS		A new campus mailing list has been created over the
		last few weeks to allow authorities to contact the
		entire campus community by e-mail more quickly and
		comprehensively in cases of "emergencies."  However,
		you may receive several copies of these messages.
		In that case, we will look at the message headers 
		to determine which list they originated from.

REASONS		The distribution list is made up of department-level
		internal lists which may include some people already
		included in other departments' lists (especially for
		undergraduate students and others who use several
		mailboxes with different UCLA addresses).

FEEDBACK	Keep in mind that UCLA Astronomy has nothing to do 
		with the content of these messages; we just forward
		them to you.  So address your responses accordingly.

NOTEWORTHY	The first message to that list is expected tomorrow.

		The various headers identifying the sender may show
		different information because of the way such a
		message	is forwarded.  This should not cause alarm,
		but you should always remain vigilant about the
		authenticity of any e-mail message...
