Creating mailing lists
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. If you sometimes send messages to all of the email users on your
site, you can create a mailing list to streamline the process. You manage
mailing lists through the Majordomo service.
To create a mailing list:
the shortcuts area of the Home pageMailing Lists (Email section). The Mailing
Lists window opens.
In the Mailing Lists
submenu, click Create. The Create a New Mailing List form opens.
In the List name
field, enter a name for the new mailing list. The name must be in lowercase
letters. The name you enter is combined with @<example.com>
as the email address of the mailing list.
In the List Maintainers
Email Address field, enter the email address of the person who will
manage this mailing list.
In the Maintenance
Password field, enter the password for the mailing list administrator.
In the Confirm
Maintenance Password field, enter the password again.
In the Description field, enter a one-line description of the mailing
list, such as for what the list will be used.
In the Introductory Message text box, enter a welcome message that
will be sent to all new members on this mailing list, introducing the
mailing list and describing how it is to be used.
In the Forwarded Mail Footer text box, enter useful information
related to the mailing list, such as the name of the mailing list, the
email address of the mailing list, or the Web site address.
