How to manage mailing lists in cPanel

About mailing lists #

You can use cPanel to create, modify, and delete mailing lists for your web site. Using a mailing list, you can send one message to many recipients at the same time. For example, you might create a customers@example.com mailing list that you use to send a message to all of your customers at once.

There are many configuration options available for mailing lists. You can specify the e-mail addresses in a list, define welcome messages for new subscribers, and more. cPanel uses the Mailman list manager to provide this functionality.

Creating a mailing list #

To create a mailing list in cPanel, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to cPanel.
  2. In the EMAIL section of the cPanel home screen, click Mailing Lists:cPanel - Email - Mailing Lists icon
  3. Under Create a Mailing List, in the List Name text box, type the mailing list name that you want.
  4. In the Domain list box, select the domain for the mailing list.
  5. In the Password text box, type the mailing list password that you want.
  6. In the Password (Again) text box, retype the mailing list password.
  7. Under Access Type, select Public or Private:
    • Public mailing lists have public archives, anyone can subscribe, and the list is advertised on the Mailman page.
    • Private mailing lists have private archives, an administrator must approve new subscribers, and the list is not advertised on the Mailman page.
      Most mailing lists are private, not public.
  8. Click Add. cPanel creates the mailing list.
