Live@Edu distribution and address lists
I am looking at live@edu and am currently testing this on a seperate domain we purchased. Our goal is to move all staff and pupils to live mail for the start of next year.
For email we currently use an LEA webmail system (squirrelmail) for both staff and pupils. It uses the domain of @school.area.sch.uk whilst the new domain would be @school.co.uk.
The LEA uses SIMS data exported to them to create pupil and staff email accounts (specified csv format) - its also used to create pupil and staff timetables as well as distribution lists. They include form class lists, teaching class lists and year group lists. This is used quite regularly by staff and they are keen for any new system to allow them to do this.
How do people create distribution lists in live mail at moment? As we dont have the AD structure for distribution lists i was wondering how people have created these?
