Mailing lists

An electronic mailing list is an email 'address' (list name) to which a number of people are 'subscribed'. Information sent to the single list (email) address is forwarded to the subscribers of that list.

Target Audience: Massey staff

Mailing lists are useful when email is sent routinely to the same group of people (i.e. to three or more people). All subscribers to the list can email each other easily, via a single address, without having to set up contact lists, recipient lists etc.

SYMPA, the mailing list system used within Massey University, is web-based and fully manageable (once definition has been approved) by the list owner(s). A range of list options are available which can be selected once the list is defined.

See the SYMPA Help for information and help with mailing lists
