What's a mailing list? How can setting up this type of list benefit both your site and your business in general?
An electronic mailing list is a collection of email addresses that receive the very same message simultaneously. When you send an email message to the mailing list address, it will be forwarded to all the email addresses on that list automatically, but none of the receivers will become aware of who the other recipients are. In the general case, people have to register for a list, but sometimes email addresses are included manually without their owners’ approval. Depending on the specific mailing list administration software, you may also be able to add new mailing list subscribers, so users cannot sign up for a mailing list unless you authorize their signup request. The mailing list option is rather useful in case you’d like to send regular newsletters or some other kind of periodic notifications to clients, since you will have to send just a single e-mail message and all of the mailing list subscribers will receive it immediately. This way, you won’t have to enter plenty of email addresses manually.
