IESG Statement on Allocation of Email Addresses in the ietf.org Domain

21 Jul 2021

The IESG and LLC Board have formalized the following policy regarding the allocation of email addresses in the ietf.org domain:

  • New email addresses for general and administrative roles under ietf.org must be chosen to avoid conflicts with potential IETF mailing list names
  • The IESG must be consulted before any new email addresses under ietf.org are created and will have the sole responsibility for approving and managing addresses under ietf.org
  • New individual email addresses for LLC personnel will be allocated under a new staff.ietf.org subdomain, with the LLC being solely responsible for the approval and management of those addresses
  • Existing individual email addresses under ietf.org at the time the policy goes into effect will continue to receive email, which will be forwarded to new staff.ietf.org subdomain addresses; and outbound mail should be preferably be sent from staff.ietf.org addresses or role-based ietf.org addresses
