On Exchange mailing lists, the recipients include only @aalto.fi addresses, and the address of these lists is always [list's name]@aalto.fi.

September 2021:

We will have a new tool for maintaining the Exchange lists later this year – next year.

Before the new tool is available, the list manager can manage the list members using this script on an Aalto-Windows computer:

%SystemRoot%\SYSTEM32\rundll32.exe dsquery,OpenQueryWindow

You can also use Aalto Windows at  Aalto Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI, vdi.aalto.fi) > Instructions for VDI:
