Mailing lists allow you to use a single address to send mail to multiple email addresses.
cPanel 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:
Enter a secure password in the Password text box.
If you wish for cPanel to generate a secure password for you, click Password Generator.
Select one of the following privacy options:
private — This mailing list has private archives, the administrator must approve subscriptions, and the mailing list is not advertised on the Mailman interface.
public — This mailing list has public archives, the subscriptions are open, or the list is advertised on the Mailman interface.
After you create a mailing list with cPanel, you can use the functions below to modify, delete, or change the password.
The Current Lists section of the interface displays a list of the mailing lists on the account. You can use the Page buttons to navigate through the list of mailing lists.
To search for a mailing list, enter a keyword in the Search text box and click Go.
The following table describes the Current Lists table:
|List Name||The full email address of the mailing list.|
