Creating and managing Mailing Lists

To add a new Mailig List, logon into the "Mail Administration" section from your control panel, then click on "Web Admin" and use the "Add List" page.

  • Allowed Posters. Select users that can post to the list.
    • Anyone. Select to let anyone with an email account post mail to a list.
    • Subscribers. Select to let only the list subscribers post mail to a list.
    • Moderators. Select to let only the list owner post mail. Moderator is used when you want the list owner to review all messages before they are posted to the list.
  • List Name. Enter a list name with no spaces.
  • Mail List Name (Title). Enter a descriptive title to help the list administrator identify the list. The name must be from 3 to 23 characters in length (spaces are OK).
  • List Owner's Email Address. Enter the fully qualified mail address of the account (list owner) that the list runs under. This is the full email address of the mail account that receives all messages (such as Subscribe and Unsubscribe requests) to the list. It is also the account from which help messages are sent and to which error messages are sent.
    On a moderated list, the list owner is also known as the moderator.
    The list owner and list administrator are usually the same person, but a "dummy" user account can be set up to be the list owner in order to hide the identity of the list administrator. There can be only one list owner per list.
  • Local List Admin (User ID). Enter a user ID for the list administrator.
  • Disallow Subscription (ie: Private List). Select to reject subscribe requests to a list. List subscribers can only be added one of the following ways:
    • List administrator using IMail Administrator to edit the Users file.
    • List administrator using IMail Web Messaging to change user list permissions.

List Owner and List Moderator

List Owner

This is the full email address of the mail account that receives all messages (such as Subscribe and Unsubscribe requests) to the list. It is also the account from which help messages are sent and to which error messages are sent.
On a moderated list, the list owner is also known as the moderator.
The list owner and list administrator are usually the same person, but a "dummy" user account can be set up to be the list owner in order to hide the identity of the list administrator. There can be only one list owner per list.

List Moderator

If a list is moderated, the list owner is known as a "moderator."
The moderator is the only one who can post to a moderated list. (The moderator receives all messages to the list, before they are posted; the moderator can then review the content of the message and then decide to post it or not.)
