Group Email Discussion Lists are the best solutions for any group that needs online private and direct communication; with advanced email list hosting tools supporting various list configuration for all asynchronous discussions.
Web interface: A web interface connection creates an easy way for people to subscribe, leave and change their settings. Members can also search, read and contribute from the web.
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.
Confirmation: 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 them as a prank.
Compatible: The system accepts common commands used by other list services: you do not have to relearn commands.
Protected membership: Mailing lists may be configured so new members can be;
- 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
- be added by the administrator or you can allow them to add themselves
Visitors: At the administrator’s discretion your mailing list can allow visitors to read and search the archives on the web but cannot contribute to the group. OR keep it private.
Multi-lingual: Supports mailing lists in a number of languages.
Spam protection: Number-moderating feature virtually eliminates spam. By requiring new members to have their first few messages approved (number set by you) you can keep spammers from joining your list.
Moderating: Supports several moderating models. All members can be moderated, selected members can be moderated, and selected members can be un-moderated (while everyone else still is).
Web-based moderating: You can approve or reject messages using the web interface. Different moderation setting includes:
- Date Moderating: Can have moderated messages be automatically approved after a given time period
- Email Based
- Number moderating: An option for new members to have their first few messages approved; thereafter they can contribute unmoderated
Security Settings: Different security roles (list admin, site admin, and server admin) allow you to delegate rights and responsibilities
Cross-Posting: Sending the same message to multiple lists can be Allowed or Disallowed
Digests: Regular or mime
Newsgroup: Make your list available as a secure private newsgroup using NNTP protocol
