Mailing various people(employees, clients, etc.) with one click is a great way to save time and effort of mailing individually.  If you are looking to send emails to many people at once, 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. In this guide, you will get thorough information on setting up and using a mailing list in Plesk. 

What is Plesk? 

Plesk is a control panel that makes it easier to maintain various factors of web hosting.  This platform offers common features with some of the advanced features.  There is a mailing group option that allows users to create one mail address that can be used to forward mail for multiple mail users on the same domain. 

What is a Mailing List? 

The mailing list consists of a group email address that users can subscribe to while using a website. The mail list is helpful for sending emails to various recipients at the same time.  These emails can include presentation materials, plain texts, links, promotional materials, colourful newsletters. So Plesk is beneficial to create a mailing list to add and maintain your subscribers. 

The first thing you have to remember, don’t add people to your mailing list if they don’t want to hear from you (if they didn’t subscribe).

Set Up Mailing List on Plesk

Log in to Plesk and open the control panel, then click on the "Mail">"Mailing Lists" tab.
