Mailman mailing lists - adding and removing recipients

When a Mailman mailing list is created, an administrator is specified for the list who receives an email message of the creation of the mailing list. The message also includes the address of the Web user interface used for managing the list (https://list.aalto.fi/mailman/admin/list'sname) and the password that allows access to the page.

A Mailman mailing list can include email addresses from outside Aalto University, and it is in the format list'sname@list.aalto.fi.

The management address of a Mailman maling list follows the format: https://list.aalto.fi/mailman/admin/list'sname
