How do I set up and maintain a mailing list?

If only you want to use the list, and not your co-workers, then you should set up an 'address book' (contacts) entry in your email application. An address book entry may be used to refer to lists of addresses or contact groups, as well as single addresses.  For more information, Outlook users should refer to FAQ 2314, which also describes the use of shareable contact groups.

If you want others to be able to mail to the list, then you'll need to have a central mailing list created, unless you set up a shareable contact group (see above).

Full details about setting up and maintaining mailing lists can be found at the following IT Services web page:
