Completely New to Mailing Lists


Wow I feel stupid, but I really have never used one. What software do I need to use them and how do I sign up to them?

If you're talking about a regular everyday mailing list, you don't need anything other than an email address and your standard means of retrieving email from same. As for signing up, just go to the site's sign-up page and follow their directions.

OK, that was easy. Thanks.

One other thing what does this mean?
Would you like to receive list mail batched in a daily digest?

A daily digest is one email with a bunch of recent posts.

Same thing. It's just an email list. Read more about it HERE. Some email lists are closed, meaning you can only read, not post. Others allow reading and posting.

I don't know, honestly, Bob. I've never used batch digests on lists before.

You ought to drop the list admin a brief email asking about this, Bob. Admins are usually very helpful about stuff like this.

Luck!
