A mailing list is a group email address to which a number of users can be subscribed. Mailing lists are used for sending email messages to multiple recipients at once. You can create mailing lists and subscribe users to them within the Plesk Panel. Once the mailing list has been created, all subscribers will receive message sent to the mailing list address.

The first step is to switch on the mailing lists server. If you have already switched it on, you can move on to Setting Up the Mailing List.

SWITCHING ON THE MAILING LISTS SERVER

1)   Log in to your Plesk panel.

2)   Navigate to the Mail tab at the top of the page in the Power User view.
