Send Email to a Mailing List

Overview

Messages sent to a Mailing list are distributed to the list's subscribers. In most cases lists are restricted to only allow individuals that are members of the list to send messages to the list, commonly refered to as "posting." In a few specific cases, typically UAA dynamic lists, only specific email addresses are authorized to post to the list.

 

How do I use this technology?

All Mailing lists at UAA have an email addres of the form <listname>@lists.uaa.alaska.edu. For example, to post to a list called seawolves_sports, you can send email to seawolves_sports@uaa.alaska.edu.

Messages sent to these addresses first go to the Mailing list server. The server receives the messages and processes it, checking for errors, and following the rules established by the list owner(s), if the message is valid, the message is sent to each of the list's subscribers.
