How to use mailing lists

A mailing list is an automated system for the dissemination of topical emails to interested recipients.

What's automatic about it?

  1. You don't need to ask someone to put you on the mailing list - or to take you off it - you can do it all yourself.
  2. When you send an email to the mailing list, nobody needs to sit down and re-address it to all the members of that list - the mailing list system will take care of that.
  3. If you decide you want the mailing list system to assemble all daily messages into one single collated message (to prevent cluttering your inbox), the mailing list system can do that too.

Important note

  • Some mailing lists are moderated, some are not.
  • A moderated list means that every message sent to that list will be reviewed and then approved or rejected by a human (usually the person in charge of that list).
  • The membership of the list can also be moderated. This means when you go to join the list, your membership has to be approved.
  • You will be notified by email if you have a posted message rejected by the moderator.
