The Blackboard–Users Mailing List

iSolutions maintains a mailing list for users of the University of Southampton Blackboard system named blackboard-users. This list is used by iSolutions to inform users of upgrades or downtime on the system.

Anyone who is an instructor on a Blackboard course which is available to students will automatically be added to the mailing list. This is updated once every 24 hours.

If you would like to receive emails from the mailing list regardless of whether you are a Blackboard instructor with an available Blackboard course you can request that you always receive mailings by emailing us at

In Outlook, you may filter messages in your University Email account from the mailing list so that they arrive directly in a specific folder, rather than crowding your inbox.
