Mailing Lists - Sending Messages
This article answers some frequently asked questions about sending and reading mailing list messages.
How do I read the messages that come to my email list?
Assuming that you are subscribed to the list, email that is sent to an email list is delivered to your personal email account.
What is the maximum size for a message being sent through an email list?
The maximum total size (body and attachments) for a message is 10MB. If you need to distribute a larger document, we recommend using Webshare or the Shared Documents space for your list.
When I set up my email list, I didn't restrict subscription. I would like to restrict it now. Is there a way to do this?
Yes. You can change the settings that determine who can view your email list information or who can subscribe. See Mailing Lists - Modify How People Interact With My List for instructions.
How do you choose whether or not a welcome message is sent to new subscribers?
To prevent new subscriber from receiving a welcome message, select the quiet checkbox when you enter his/her email address on the Manage Subscribers page. Likewise, you can select the quiet checkbox when removing a subscriber from the list.
