OVERVIEW


Electronic mailing lists, also known as listservs, are used to distribute email to a specific collection of users who have opted into the group. Listservs are used to share news and information among an organization or group of people with similar interests. It is an easy way to manage a mailing list by letting the users opt in or out of the group as desired while letting the listserv owner restrict membership to the group and postings.


• Archives of messages sent and received.
• Automatic bounce processing.
• Content Filtering.
• Digest delivery.
• Spam filters.
• Controls to manage submissions, viewing and distribution.
