Virtual List Hosting For Group Email

Have as many email lists as your group needs under a single domain (or different domains) without paying additional list fees.

Web interface:

Offer email and/or a web interface link for users to sign up, cancel, and modify their settings. Members can use any internet-connected device to browse, read, and contribute.

Fast text searching:

All archives may be indexed for fast searching. Search on a particular word used in a message; specify the location of the words in the message. (i.e. header), or exclude them altogether.


An “are you sure you want to join” message can be sent to new subscribers to confirm their email address and ensure someone else did not subscribe to the list as a prank.


You do not need to learn commands again, because the system accepts standard commands used by other list services.

Protected membership:

Mailing lists may be set up to accept new members that are:

  • approved by an administrator or not
  • required to use a member password or not required
  • added to your list without approval or you can require approval
  • added by the administrator or you can allow them to add themselves


Your mailing list may, at the administrator’s option, permit visitors to read and browse the online archives but not to post or reply to messages. OR keep the archives totally private.


Supports mailing lists in a number of languages.

Spam protection:
