So you want to set up a mailing list? This How To: will guide you through the basics. Initially, I have only included the basic installation guide. I will then open this forum up to you all - ask questions and I will get them answered and added to this first post.STEP ONE
Log into your C-Panel. Click on the 'Mail' IconSTEP TWO
Click on the 'Mailing Lists' option and then click 'Add Mailing List'STEP THREE
Enter your details:LIST NAME
: - mylistnamePASSWORD
: - listpasswordDOMAIN
: - domainforlist (drop down menu)
Click 'Create' buttonSTEP FOUR
Click 'Go Back'.
Now click the 'Edit' option (to the right of the name of your mailing list)STEP FIVE
Enter the password for list in the 'List Administor Password' box
The settings should all be relatively straight forward as the software has descriptions throughout.
That's the basic setup. Now rather than list all of the options and details, I'd rather you try this part, and then post any questions you have. Want to know how to change something? Post that question. Want to know if something can be done? Post that question. Any questions that are asked will have the answer posted in above.WARNING:
A mailing list, unfortunately comes with the problem of possibly causing spam complaints. This especially appears to be an issue with AOL users, who are often all too keen to hit that 'SPAM MAIL' button. Take all possible precautions and be careful what you post. The number one suggestion is to refuse to allow AOL addresses to be subscribed to your mailing list.
