Mailing List

Be very careful when configuring the mailing list utility in cpanel. The default setup is that every post to the list from a member will go to every other member. This can, and has, caused users to be accused of SPAM.

There are two types of list that will avoid this, moderated and announce lists. Be sure to set these parameters if you are seeking to provide a newsletter-type list and not a full-fledged discussion list.

After you configure your options...test, test, test. Put in some of your own email addresses and be sure that the list operates as you expect.
