Mailing Lists

A Mailing List is a centrally managed distribution list for e-mails. When an e-mail is sent to a certain address (i.e. beispiel-l(/\t), this message will be distributed to all subscribers (subscription e-mail addresses).

There are two kinds of mailing lists

  • Newsletter: A newsletter is an electronic bulletin sent in regular intervals to all subscribers by the mailing list creator.
  • Discussion lists: discussion lists provide subscribers opportunites to interact with each other. Contributions to discussion lists are sent to the list and then distributed among all subscribers. In a restricted sense, there are two types of discussion lists; open (in which subscribers can contact each other freely) and closed (each participant and e-mail must first be approved by the list manager).
