To configure a Mailing List, open the Mailing List Settings page. You should select a link to the Settings page either from the list of all mailing lists located in the LIST module Settings page, or from the list owner Account Settings page.
In order to modify a Mailing List settings or subscriber lists, the Domain Administrator should have the CanAccessLists access right.
The list owners can access the Mailing List settings pages using the WebUser Interface with their Accounts. The WebUser session page listing Mailboxes and Mailbox folders also provides links to the Account Mailing Lists pages.
Log: Use the Log setting to specify what kind of information about this mailing list should be put in the Server Log. Usually you should use the Major (message posting, subscription, digest, and clean-up operations) level. But when you experience problems with this particular mailing list, you may want to set the list Log Level setting to Low-Level or All Info: in this case more details will be recorded in the System Log. When the problem is solved, set the Log Level setting to its regular value, otherwise your System Log files will grow in size very quickly. The mailing list records placed in the System Log are marked with the List(listname) tag. Only the system administrator can change the mailing list Log setting.
Description: Use the Description setting to specify the full name of the list. It will be used as a "comment" in the list E-mail address as the Real Name setting is used in account E-mail addresses.
Preferred Character Set: This option specifies how the List module should handle non-ASCII texts. It is used when displaying list messages via the Web interface: messages in the list can be composed using different character sets, and to display them all on one page, the module should know which character set is preferred.
Digesting and Archiving: Posted messages can be stored in a Mailbox created in the list owner Account. Such a Mailbox is used to collect messages for message digests. If messages are not removed from that Mailbox after a digest is created, this Mailbox can be used as a mailing list archive.
