MAIL LIST FAQs

  • Why does it take time to receive a confirmation to my add or remove?
    • The svcug@external.cisco.com is a private and protected list for SVCUG members.  In order to maintain this integrity, users must be entered manually.
  • Will I get SPAM if I join the list?
    • The SVCUG mailing list is SPAM protected by MailGuard, and you will not receive mail from anyone not subscribed to the list.  Entry is controlled and the list is monitored.  Based on this, spamming can only be done by members.  If a member spams the list with non-SVCUG related messages, they will be warned to refrain from such activities.  If the spam persists, the spammer will be removed from the list.
