Mailing lists

By  mailing list is meant a system able to automatically send an email message sent to the list's address (example lista@polimi.it) to a set of users. 

Characteristics of the list

Public or limited:

  • Public: any user, also not registered, can write to the list address and get his message forwarded to all registered users.
  • Limited: only certain users can write to the list address. The most common limitation is when the group of senders coincides with the group of recipients. Further limitations can be achieved by defining a specific group of senders different from the recipients.

  • Free: the message sent to the list is automatically forwarded to registered users without any review filter
  • Moderated: the message sent to the list is submitted for review and approval before being forwarded to registered users
