About Email Lists
Email lists facilitate email communication between large groups of people, and are an important feature of GCAPE.
You are probably familiar with Peter’s email messages that notify us of the Friday night education sessions that he organises. You’ll notice at the start of each message that there is a long list of email addresses for the recipients. It’s quite a bit of work maintaining the list of addresses, and it is difficult if you want to send a reply to all the same people who received the original message.
An email list gets around these problems by storing a list of all the email addresses on a computer server, which then sends an individual email message to each subscriber on the list. Subscribers can join or leave the list by sending email commands to the list server or via a web page, can choose to receive individual or digests of messages, and can view archives of old messages.
Privacy is improved as well, as your email is not being broadcast in every message sent to every recipient. The system is “closed”, so you can’t send email to the list if you aren’t on the list. This prevents spam being sent through the list.
