Specify a Moderator for Mailing Lists

Mailing lists are a good way to send a message or series of messages to many people at once. For example, many companies use mailing lists to email newsletters, promotional offers, or send information about product updates to subscribers. To ensure proper management of mailing lists, the domain administrator should assign a list moderator. Mailing list moderators can add/remove subscribers, post messages to the mailing list, edit mailing list settings, and more.

Applies to SmarterMail 8.x - 15.x
