Mailing lists allow distribution of messages to a mass number of recipients with very little effort on the part of the sender. There will be one or more addresses assigned to the account as a Moderator. Moderators have the ability to add and remove members from the list and review the current list.
The advantages to mailing lists over sending to a large group of recipients are numerous, but some major ones are as follows:
This is a few, but some very notable advantages to Mailing lists.
There are multiple ways to have a Mailing list set to send out email. The Mailing list can be set to recognize different senders as valid Submitters. If a valid Submitter sends an email to the mailing list it will be re-sent to all members of the list. Submitters can be set to one or more of the following:
Another option when setting up the Mailing list is setting the Submitter's address on sent messages to be hidden. This would simply allow for complete anonymity on the Mailing list. Unless someone decides to give out information about themselves in their e-mails then no member of the list would have any knowledge of who they are.
Moderators will be the only ones able to add/edit and remove addresses from mailing lists. This ensures that the security and integrity of the mailing list is maintained. By sending an e-mail message formatted in a particular way, moderators have the ability of maintaining their list no matter where they are located in the world. Moderators have the option to receive an e-mail message whenever any changes are made to the list ensuring the list remains secure. A review option is also available that will e-mail the moderators a list of all addresses on their list.
To have a list setup, we need to know the e-mail addresses of all moderators of the list and we will need a list of e-mail addresses (one address per line) laid out in a text document which we can import into our mail server.
Pricing depends on the size of the mailing list. A small mailing list comes free with most of our hosting packages. For further information on our mailing list solutions, please contact our Sales Department and they will be more than happy to help you choose the best option for your needs.
