This feature simplifies sending mass mail, allowing you to type a single address to send mail to multiple email addresses. It is important to note that the mailing lists are handled by an application called Mailman. For more information regarding Mailman, please visit http://www.list.org/.
Note: Mailman lists are made public by default. To protect any information sent through a list, it is recommended that the list be made private through the Mailman interface.

Modify a Mailing List
To quickly find the mailing list you wish to modify, type a keyword into the Search box and click Go. cPanel displays the lists whose names contain the keyword.
To modify an existing mailing list, you will need to enter the administrator password. If you have lost or forgotten your administrator password, the password can be changed, without the original password, using the Change Password feature.
Once you have entered the Mailman modification menu, you are free to define the various configuration options in Mailman. Consult the Mailman documentation for more information regarding these configuration options: http://www.list.org/docs.html.
