Group Settings

Groups can be used to represent real groups that meet together or for virtual groups with a common purpose.

Joining Policy

  • Open - Users can add themselves to this group
  • Controlled - The group owner will control the group membership

Owners

The leaders or administrators of the group

Sending Policy

  • Open: anyone on the internet can send to this group
  • Members: only members can email the group
  • Leaders: only the group leaders/owners can send to this group

Group Email

This where the email address for the group is set. Group email addresses are always of the form groups+{mylist}@yourdomain.com.

Only enter the mylist part e.g. - a group called 'news' would become groups+news@yourdomain.com - a group called 'finance' would become groups+finance@yourdomain.com

the group email name must conform to email standards, no symbols, no spaces. Avoid hyphens and underscores as the groups+ format is already confusing.
