Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are a good way to send a message or series of messages to many people at once. Some people use mailing lists for newsletters, while others use them for product updates or discussion groups. A mailing list is similar to a user alias, but has much more functionality. Some advantages of mailing lists are shown below.

  • Subscribers can enroll or remove themselves from the list automatically through email list serv commands.
  • You can restrict the email addresses that are allowed to post to the list.
  • You can automatically add headers and footers to emails sent to the list.
  • Digest mode is available, which will send those subscribers summaries of all list emails for a period of time in a single message.

For more information about Mailing Lists, see the help topics in the Mailing Lists (List Serv) section.

Note: You may or may not see the mailing list options depending on the settings made by your administrator.
