What Is Consult-Mail?

Consult-Mail is any e-mail sent to consult@rpi.edu . As I stated before, this e-mail gets put in a queue that some consultants check on a regular basis. Some even have scheduled hours specifically for responding to Consult-Mail.
Email that is sent to consult@rpi.edu is received on our UNIX environment systems. This has an advantage that most computer viruses have no effect in this environment. It has the disadvantage of not handling attachments very gracefully.
The consult mailbox gets its share of junk email. This junk email can be deleted.
