Emailing Advisees 

Advisors can contact all their advisees using an email distribution group called 'myadvisees-username@linfield.edu.' 

A faculty advisor can simply open an email message in Outlook and type in their CatNet username-specific email distribution group. For example, Dr. John Brown (username jbrown) would type  ‘myadvisees-jbrown@linfield.edu’ into the ‘To’ line.
