How to Create Mailing Lists with Your Web Hosting Account

Whether you use EarthLink Web Hosting for regular web hosting or ecommerce web hosting, the included domain email features are a big added benefit.

Mailing Lists: How to Add them in the Web Hosting Control CenterWe’ve provided an overview of managing your domain email in a previous post but this week will dive into one of those features: mailing lists.

With a Mailing List you designate a mailing list email address and add a subscriber list, and then any email sent to that list address is forwarded to everyone on the subscriber list.

Mailing Lists are a simple and efficient way to share information with customers or other groups of people via email. You can also create a mailing list to use as an email discussion group.

Here’s how to create a mailing list with your EarthLink Web Hosting account:

  1. Sign into your Web Hosting Control Center at with your EarthLink Web Hosting domain name, username, and password.
  2. Click the Email tab.
  3. Click the Add Mailing List icon.
  4. Enter a new email address to use for the mailing list.
  5. Enter a Subject. This will be a label [in brackets] applied to all mailing list emails in front of the individual subject lines.
  6. Enter your subscriber list in the Recipients field. You can add up to 300. Separate the addresses by commas or put one per line.
  7. Important: Make sure you include an email address that your emails will come from in your recipients list (you can’t use the mailing list address itself)
  8. Click the Save button and you should get a confirmation that your list was created properly.
