Email mailing lists are used to send emails to many people at once – for promoting sales, educating, drawing people to your web site, membership renewals and communication with your own sales force or vendors.
When you send to a mailing list, the people that get your message do not have access to the emails of anyone else on the list and they can choose to opt-out (remove themselves) from the mailing.
We can tie web sites that we create to mailing list programs like MailChimp, Constant Contact, etc. but we also have two types of mailing list programs available to our clients – Mailman and PHPList. They use open source software and are inexpensive functional solutions for many clients.
Administer your Mailman Mailing List
PHPList administration is at http://yoursite/lists/admin/.
Mailman is a simple mailing and discussion list. Mailman can be used for discussion among members of your group. It is used to gather up a list of emails and to send a message to that list whenever you want by sending a message to one special email address. To administer a Mailman list, use the login box on this page. Contact us if you need login assistance.
PHPList is a more sophisticated and full-featured mailing list program that can be tied into your web site. Customers or site visitors can be added automatically to a PHPList. It does not work for “discussion” it is for one-way email communication TO a group. You must login to a web page to prepare and send email messages.
If you have a PHPList set up with Internet Connections, you will find the login page at http://yourwebsiteaddress.com/lists/admin/. The username and password are provided by Internet Connections at set up time.
