Mailing Lists

Mailing lists allow a single email message to be sent to many email addresses seamlessly and systematically.

Features include:

  • Greater reliability than using multiple adressees in a regular email.
  • Easily configured by you with a number of useful options.
  • Addition and removal of members from the list either managed by yourself, or at your option, by list members.
  • Useful as a “discussion” list, with members able to send messages to others on the list.
  • Useful as a “broadcast” list, with a restricted set of senders, and where other members can't send to the list.

Availability

We can provide you with a mailing list service if you have a “virtual” email server hosted with us.

Prices

A fee of $60+GST is charged to setup a mailing list for you. Up to 5 lists can be setup at the same time for this price. Please note we may charge a configuration change fee of $30+GST for changes after this initial setup.

Technical Information

Our preferred mailing list product is “Mailman”.

mailing list names

For technical reasons list names must have two parts, a domain prefix and a suffix chosen by you. For example mydomain.com might have a list named mydomain-staff. Mail can be sent to the address mydomain-staff@mydomain.com.

mailing list aliases

We recommend that an “email alias” be created for the list name. For example the list alias staff@mydomain.com could be used for the list mydomain-staff@mydomain.com. This gives you a simpler and easier to remember mailing list name to work with.
