Managing the Mailing Lists via the Web is simple and intuitive, some functions however are not available in the Management menu of the Control Panel but only through commands sent via Email.

In fact via email it is possible to manage the
Mailing Lists more precisely, and above all it is possible to access functions which are not found in the Management menu. To use these commands you need to select the Allow remote administration option in the Mailing List settings.



The commands via email are assigned by sending emails to specific senders:

mailinglistname-command@domainname.com


The syntax of such commands is therefore to always follow the name of the
Mailing List with the command that you wish to assign. For example to get help on how to use the advertisements@domainname.com Mailing List you need to send an email to:

advertisements-help@domainname.com


leaving the subject and text empty.

Here is a list of the more useful commands:



Help: to get help on the how the Mailing List works send an email to:

mailinglistname-help@domainname.com


leaving the subject and text of the message empty.

If the sender of the email requesting help is a moderator, information will be sent on how to manage the list, whereas for all other users information will be sent on how to use the list (subscribe, unsubscribe etc...).


Subscription: to subscribe to the Mailing List you need to send an email to:

mailinglistname-subscribe@domainname.com


leaving the subject and text of the message empty.

After sending the request an email will be sent to the sender asking for confirmation of the subscription (to avoid subscribing people without their consent), after receiving this message  simply reply with the same email (that is, click on "Reply" and then "Send" to send the email), after which the user will receive an email notifying the correct subscription to the list.

Attention: if, when creating the Mailing List, the Confirm Subscription option is not selected, the user will not receive any subscription confirmation request. Leaving the Confirm Subscription always  selected is a good rule to avoid Spam and unpleasant surprises.

Send an Email to all the subscribers: after subscribing to the Mailing List to send an email to all the subscribers simply send an email to:

mailinglistname@domainname.com


where
mailinglistname is the name that you assigned to the list when you created it (the one displayed in "Mailing List" in Management)

Cancellation: to cancel yourself from the Mailing List send an email to:

mailinglistname-unsubscribe@domainname.com


leaving the subject and text of the message empty.

Also in this case, the user will receive an email requesting confirmation of his/her cancellation from the list (to avoid users being cancelled by others without their consent), the procedure that needs to be followed is therefore the same as that indicated above for the subscription.
