The List Server allows for the creation and management of subscribed mailing lists. Generally, lists can be one of the following:
Open/Closed Announcement Lists
These are typically used to distribute information one-way. The owner of the list can choose how membership is determined. They can also control who has permissions to send information to the list.
Open/Closed Discussion Lists
Subscribers to the list may submit information to be distributed to the list. In this way, a discussion among members of the list is facilitated.
Users find Email lists useful for :
- one-way distribution of information
- email-based discussions
- question and answer support
