Manage Smart Lists

A Smart List is a type of distribution list with more options to make it easier to specify members and who is allowed to send emails to that list.

Just as a distribution list, a Smart List lets you reach multiple email addresses at once. For example, you could create a team address for your whole office team (team@mydomain.com), a billing address for your accounting team (billing@mydomain.com), and so on.


Smart Lists can be managed from the Admin Panel:

  • Go to the Admin Panel

  • Log in using your Admin username and password.


Adding a Smart List

  • Click on Smart Lists in the left menu bar.
  • Choose a Domain from the list.
  • Click on the button New List.
  • In List Name, type in the name of your list (only the part before the '@' sign).
  • In List type, you have two options:
    • Specify Members (add each member one by one, by email address), or
    • All domain users (automatically include all valid emails of the chosen domain).
  • In List security, you can choose who can send emails to this smart list:
    • Only members can post: all or only some emails from the same domain can post,
    • Password protected: only senders that include the password at the beginning of the subject line can send (email subject example, with a custom password between square brackets: [mypass]My Subject ),
    • No protection: anyone can send emails to this list.
  • If you choose Password protected, type in the chosen password in the input field. You can share this password with accepted senders and instruct them to include it in the email subject (for example: [customPassword]My Subject - the password will be removed before recipients receive the email).
  • You can choose to Send a copy of the message to the sender.
  • Click on the Add Smart List button to finish the setup.
