Departmental identity is important. Using @cs.ucsd.edu email addresses enables intra-dept mailing lists where people are comfortable writing freely. It also also enables us to make CS-only resources available online more easily.
Unfortunately, with the new mail system it can be a bit tricky to set up your client to send from @cs.ucsd.edu.
If you're trying to subscribe to misc, you simply need to email "email@example.com" from your @cs address.
CSEHelp also maintains info on setting up clients.
Here's how to set things up for various email clients:
Under the "Accounts" tab of "Settings": "Your Name" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
You will also want to add your cs account by clicking on "Add another email address you own"
"Your Name" <email@example.com> Mail is sent through: smtp.ucsd.edu Secured connection on port 465 using SSL
In Apple Mail 5 (OSX Lion), I setup my eng.ucsd.edu account normally, but then go to Mail -> Preferences, the Accounts tab, select my UCSD account and make sure that in the "Email address" field it firstname.lastname@example.org rather than eng.ucsd.edu . User name stays untouched
Gmail App will work via the web configured outgoing smtp server.
K-9 Mail: Menu Button > More > Settings > Account Settings > Sending Mail > Outgoing Server. (Use setting from above).
