YMES: Use the YSU Mass Email System (YMES)

Question

How do I use the YMES?

Answer

YMES is intended to provide faculty with the ability to send emails to class rosters and will eventually replace the MyYSU portal system to send class rosters.

General Specifications:

  • YMES will allow a faculty member to send roster-based email to courses they are assigned to teach (a) in the current semester, (b) in the two prior semesters, (c) or in the next semester when within two months of the start of the next semester.
  • YMES will allow the faculty member to download a CSV file containing the student's names, email addresses, and Y number.
  • YMES will automatically send a CC to the sending faculty's Office 365 mailbox. It also includes statistics on the number of recipients the email was sent to.
  • All recipient email addresses are sent in the BCC field so that no recipient can reply to all.

To Use:

  1. Go to https://ymes.ysu.edu
  2. Log in using your YSU ID & password.
  3. Click Students.
  4. Select the class rosters you want to send an email to.
  5. Enter your subject, CC, and message. 
    • You can skip the subject and message and click Get List to get a CSV of the selected roster(s).
  6. When ready, click Send Now
  7. To set your options, click on the tab next to your name.

Note: Under settings, you will be able to set our signature block or proxies. You can add or remove proxies as you prefer. Note that proxies must be YSU employees and not student employees. Don't forget to click Save.

If you need more assistance, contact the YSU Service Desk at 330-941-1595 or at servicedesk@ysu.edu. You can also submit a service request.
