Mailing lists

Service Category: Email, Calender & Collaboration

The service can be used to set up and manage mailing lists. These mailing lists are usually used in a closed group of recipients to implement the easy-to-use option of either two-way communication (e.g. working group) or one-way communication (e.g. sending newsletters). After initial set-up, the owner of the list and persons authorised by him have a large range of self-administration options for their lists.

User groups
