Subscribing to a mailing list

There are two ways to subscribe:
  1. Xeams Administrator can add an email address manually
  2. Users can subscribe themselves

Adding subscribers

Follow the steps below to add subscribers.
  • Log in to Admin Console as administrator
  • Select Manage Mailing List under the Server Configuration menu 
  • Click the Edit link next to the mailing list name
  • Type the subscriber's email address in Add another subscriber field
  • Click save. The newly added subscriber will appear below

Allowing users to add/remove themselves

Users on the Internet can subscribe/unsubscribe themselves by sending emails to special addresses. To enable this feature check the Allow users to subscribe check box. Refer to the image below



Once this option is enabled, users can send an email to:
  • subscribe-MailListName@YourCompany.com to subscribe
  • unsubscribe-MailListName@YourCompany.com to unsubscribe
For example, if you create a mailing list using volunteers@helpingHands.org, users can subscribe by sending a message to subscribe-volunteers@HelpingHands.org and remove themselves by sending a message to unsubscribe-volunteers@HelpingHands.org. This example assumes that HelpingHands.org is a local domain that is handled by Xeams.

Hi, It will be also nice to setup allowed domain to subscribe. So create new distribution list and add domains from with people can subscribe.

If there is way to list up not one by one, it will be perfect. Let put "import" section from text file or csv file.
