Mailing list – setup and configuration

The mailing list is a convenient way to send offers, news and other important information to your customers. We would like to remind you that in order to send news, proposals among other things, there must be consent from the recipient of the newsletter.

In order to set up a mailing list via web-hosting management choose “My Zone” on our website and log in using your ZoneID account information. Then on the service overview page under web-hosting service click on the shortcut “e-mail”.

1. Choose „Mailinglists“ from the menu. In order to add a new mailing list, enter the desired address and click “Add”.

2. Assign the name to the list, enter the e-mail address of the list owner and choose the action that will be performed when the message is sent to the owner of the mailing list.

List name: use short and informative list name

List owner email: E-mail address to which the mailing list program will send messages related to the mailing list. This address will not be automatically added to the list of members of the mailing list. When a message is sent to the list owner: Each list has always 4 command addresses, one of which is newsletter-owner@domeen.eu (according to your domain name). Here you can configure, what action will be performed when the message is sent to the owner of the mailing list. Whether the message is delivered to the owner, rejected or ignored.

E-mail confirmation: when choosing YES, an email confirmation will be activated, which means, that application to subscribe to or unsubscribe from the list is sent from the address to command address (at newsletter-subscribe@domeen.eu) or (at newsletter-unsubscribe@domeen.eu). This will exclude possibility when a letter could be sent to the command address in the name of someone who has not applied for it.

Language: System messages will be sent to the list owner and members in the language chosen

Mailinglist password: this field must be filled in only if the web page script is used for sending emails to the list and adding/removing members.

3. Options for subscribing to the list

Subscribing enabled: when choosing YES, sending an email to the command address newsletter-subscribe@domeen.eu is enough to subscribe to the list. When choosing NO, the program will reject subscription applications and members can only be added manually by the owner via web-hosting management.

List owner must approve new member: when choosing YES, then the owner must manually check all automatic subscribers before adding them to the list and also confirm or reject the subscriber manually via web-hosting management.

Notify owner about subscribing: when choosing YES, subscription application is sent to list command address newsletter-subscribe@domeen.eu and owner will receive an automatic notification regarding new subscriber.

Notify owner about unsubscribtion: when choosing YES, application to unsubscribe is sent to list command address newsletter-unsubscribe@domeen.eu and the owner will receive an automatic notification regarding unsubscription.

NB! After @ your domain name must be used in the newletter-subscribe@domeen.eu and newsletter-unsubscribe@domeen.eu. You must also use the name of your mailing list instead of the „newsletter“ that is used in this instruction. For example, if you use „marketing“, then the address will be as follows marketing-subscribe@domeen.eu and marketing-unsubscribe@domeen.ee

4. Bounces and posting permissions

Bounce processing: When processing bounced messages, bounce score is calculated for every member based on the number of bounced back messages (e.g. If the email address doesn’t exist; mailbox is full etc.).
If the bounce score is greater than the bounce score threshold, then this member will be removed from the list. Use 0 to disable the automatic removal. Bounce score can be reset if in field, bounce score stale after days you add a specific number of days. The calculation will start over again. Use 0 to disable this function.

In the posting permissions section you can note how the mailing list programme acts when messages are sent to the list by different senders – whether messages are put on hold, discarded or rejected.

Owner: Assigned address, where the program will send emails regarding the mailing list.

Subscriber: Mailing list subscriber’s email address

Whitelist: an email address which is allowed to send messages to the mailing list, but which is not a member of the list.

Others: an email address, not a member of the list and isn’t included in the whitelist.

Asenda To/CC ridades loendi aadress: If «Asenda To/CC ridades loendi aadress» address is activated and email address is added to Reply-To field, then To and CC will be replaced by the address noted in the Reply-To field. This excludes the ability to send mail to the mailing list address when you click “Reply All”.
