Setting up and using mailing list on Plesk (Windows)
If you are looking to send emails to a bunch people at once, then it’s time to get a mailing list. The mailing list contains emails of users who have subscribed to receive emails. These email messages can contain promotional materials, links, newsletters, educational material, presentations or even plain text. I will take you through setting up your mailing list in Plesk and managing it.
Useful Tip: Don’t add people to your mailing list if they don’t want to hear from you (if they didn’t subscribe).
First Login to Plesk > Click “Mail”
Click the “Mailing Lists” tab
From this point onwards you can create and manage mailing lists. So let’s go and create a new mailing list. Click “Create Mailing List”.
Fill in your details.
- Mailing list address: The email address that will be sending the messages
- Mailing list administrator’s email: Admins email address
- Subscribers: The users you would like to send emails
By clicking “Notify administrator on the mailing list creation”, the admin will receive a notification about the creation of the list.
Click OK upon completion.
You will now be able to see your newly created mailing list.
If you would want to add more subscribers or remove the subscribers, then simply go to the subscribers' list and modify it as you please.
To remove a mailing list, simply select the mailing list from the address list and click “Remove”.
To switch on/off the mailing list, go to “Websites and Domains” > Select “Mail Settings”
From the mailing list, select the email address you want to turn on/off.
Under “Mailing list address”, select the checkbox to turn ON and vice versa for turning it OFF.
Mailing lists save plenty of time by sending out emails in batch to multiple addresses; you can only imagine how long it would take to send them all one by one to each user. Using the above steps, you can create and manage your mailing lists in order to send messages to multiple users at once.
