Ordering a mailing list

A mailing list is a special tool designed for the distribution of email messages, which makes it possible to send email messages, at one time, to the personal emailbox of every member on the list. Aalto University has Mailman and Exchange mailing lists.

Mailman mailing lists - moderating messages

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/listannimi) and the password that allows access to the page. A Mailman mailing list can include Aalto University’s email addresses and also email addresses outside Aalto University, and it is in the format list'sname@list.aalto.fi.
