What is a mailinglist?

Table of contents
No headers

A mailinglist allows a closed group of people to exchange e-mails. The main difference between a normal e-mail sent to multiple recipients is that a mailinglist has its own e-mail address. If you send an e-mail to this address, the mailinglist software will automatically send the e-mail to all the members on the list. 

Mailinglists are similar to a forum. The advantage over a web forum is that the posts can be read and written offline. Only registered users (registered mail addresses) can however participate in this list and send messages. It is also common that the posts of a mailing list are public and thus for everyone visible.

In principle, Mailman lists the lists publicly by default. However, our system is set to override this option and new lists are created private.

As an administrator of a mailing list, you can always customize these options in the mailman.
