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
