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

Only registered users, i.e. registered e-mail addresses, can participate in a mailing list and send messages. Within the mailing list, however, the messages are public and therefore accessible to all members.

Mailing lists are usually managed by an administrator who adds new members to the mailing list and deletes them if necessary. They also have the option of granting read or write permissions to individual members.

Hostpoint uses the “Mailman” software (with the “Postorius” web interface) to manage mailing lists and the software is integrated into the Hostpoint Control Panel. By default, mailing lists created with Mailman are public. However, this setting is overwritten at Hostpoint and new mailing lists are always private when they are created. As an administrator of a mailing list, you can change this setting at any time.
