Overview

Mailing lists allow you to use a single address to send mail to multiple email addresses. cPanel handles mailing lists with the third-party Mailman application. For more information, read the Mailman documentation.

Create a mailing list

The system includes an interface that allows you to define a name, password, and domain name for the mailing list.

To add a new mailing list, perform the following steps:

  1. Enter the mailing list name in the List Name text box.

     2.  Select the domain for the mailing list from the Domain menu.

     3.  Enter and confirm the new password in the appropriate text boxes.

    4.  Select one of the following privacy options:

    • Private — Private archives exist for this mailing list. The administrator must approve subscriptions, and the Mailman interface does not display the mailing list.
    • Public — Public archives exist for this mailing list. The subscriptions are open and the Mailman interface displays the list.

    5. Click Add Mailing List to create the new mailing list.

After you create a mailing list, use the functions below to modify, delete, or change the password.
