Q. Do you support mailing lists?
Yes, you can run as many mailing list on your account as you wish. We recommend using Mailman which is installed on all our servers and ready for use. Under 'Mail Manager' in cPanel select 'Mailing Lists' and 'Add List', once created you can then manage the list via the Mailman web interface.
Q. What is Mailman?
Mailman is software to help manage email discussion lists, much like Majordomo and Smartmail. Unlike most similar products, Mailman gives each mailing list a web page, and allows users to subscribe, unsubscribe, etc. over the web. Even the list manager can administer his or her list entirely from the web. Mailman also integrates most things people want to do with mailing lists, including archiving, mail-to-news gateways, integrated bounce handling, spam prevention, email-based admin commands, direct SMTP delivery (with fast bulk mailing), support for virtual domains, and more.

Q. Do you have Majordomo?
No, instead we use Mailman which works very similar to Majordomo and comes with many extra features.
Q. Can I install my own mailing list software?
Yes, you can write your own or use already available scripts, see HotScripts for a complete list of mailing list scripts available for use.
Q. Can I send spam or unsolicited e-mail?
No, absolutely not, sending of spam or unsolicited mass e-mailing will result in immediate suspension and more than likely the termination of your account. This includes mailing lists which falsely advertise themselves as opt-in lists. Be warned!
Q. Are there any restrictions on the number of subscribers on a mailing list?
We allow a maximum of 21,000 messages (total) per month.
