Posting a Message to a Bboard

Follow these steps to post a message to a bboard:

  1. Launch your email client and create a new message as you normally would.
  2. In either the To:, CC: or BCC: fields, type post+bulletinboardname@andrew.cmu.edu, where bullentinboardname is the name of the bboard. For example, to post to the cmu.misc.market bboard, the To: address would be: post+cmu.misc.market@andrew.cmu.edu
  3. Compose your post as you would any email, completing the field for Subject: and adding text to the body of the message.
  4. Select Send.

Posting to a Restricted Bboard

When you send a message to a restricted bboard, the mail system checks the header to verify that you have permission to post to that bboard. If not, the message will be rejected and bounce back to you.  For more information on restricted bboards, contact it-help@cmu.edu.
