Mailing List/Listserv


These lists, powered by GNU Mailman, are perfect for allowing a closed group of members to send messages to a group of people with common interests or responsibilities. Listservs are ideal if you want to allow a group of people to easily email each other with a single, memorable email address. Lists owners can use a web interface to tweak an array of settings to customize the list for their purposes.
