Q1.  How do I access my web site's administrative control panel?

  Point your browser to http://www.yourdomain.com/admin, where yourdomain.com is the real domain name of your web site.

Q2.  What is a mailing list?

  A mailing list allows you to email a large group of people by sending just one email. When other people in that group reply, the email is also sent out to all members in the group. You can fix the number of people in a list, or you may allow members to join and remove themselves automatically. Mailing lists must be treated with respect. A poorly managed mailing list can result in complaints against your. Point you should keep in mind if you want to maintain your own mailing list:
  1. Only add someone's email address if they have given you their permission to do so.
  2. Honor any requests to be removed prompt and courteously
If we receive complaints that a mailing list run by your site is being used to generate spam (unwanted junk email), we will have no choice but to terminate your web hosting account completely. Please do not abuse this feature!

Q3.  How do I set up a mailing list?

  From your account management control panel, click on the left-hand column green "List Management" button. Then click on the blue "Add Mailing List" button in the center of the page. You are then asked the following questions:
  • Mailing List Name: The name of the list. Emails sent to this name will be sent to all the recipients of the list.
  • Mailing List Password: This is the password for handling administrative tasks on the list.
  • Allow User Subscriptions to List: If enabled, users will be able to join and unjoin on their own by sending email to majordomo@www.yourdomain.com with the words subscribe listname or unsubscribe listname, where yourdomain.com is the real domain name of your web site, and listname is the name of your mailing list.
  • Allow Unsubscribed Posting to List: If enabled, members who are not part of your list will be able to send messages to the list. This is not recommedend, as you increase your chance of receiving spam (unwanted junk email).
  • External Recipients: The list of email addresses in this mailing list.
  • Registered User Recipients: If a member is a user of your site (i.e. yourself), you may select yourself here instead of typing your address in the previous Recipients box.
