Email Mailing Lists (Mailman)

About mailing lists

  • Mailing lists allow widespread distribution of email messages
  • A mailing list is given its own email address
  • This address sends messages to everyone on the mailing list

Why use mailing lists?

Mailing lists are most applicable where:

  • You want to discuss something via email, without needing to know the email addresses of all members of the group.
  • You need to send announcements out to a group of users, without them all needing to have a copy of the full list of email addresses.

Mailing list owner

One person will own and be responsible for the mailing list.
