Mailman is a mailing list management application which allows list owners to manage their lists directly through the use of a Web interface. It supports a wide range of types of mailing lists, such as general discussion lists and announcement-only lists and has extensive privacy control features.
Mailman list owners can control many aspects of how the list operates, and configure it directly using the Mailman interface. For example, list owners can add and delete mailing list members themselves, without having to submit a request to the Enterprise Service Desk (ESD) to make those changes. List owners can specify whether or not to review messages before they are sent to the entire list, and can control whether to review or automatically grant requests to join the list.
Unlike NOMAD Global Distribution Lists
, Mailman lists accommodate external addresses (i.e., are not restricted to ‘nasa.gov’ addresses) and can accommodate an unlimited number of recipients.
