Majordomo is a service used to automatically manage email
Mailing lists are lists of email recipients that can receive
email as group. When you create a mailing list, messages sent to the mailing
list email address are automatically sent to every email address on the
list. Mailing lists are commonly used to circulate topic discussions.
A mailing list includes a set of list members. Whenever a list member
posts an email message to the mailing list email address, that email message
is distributed to all list members.
To manage mailing lists through Majordomo, click Mailing
Lists in the shortcuts area of the Home pageAbout
