This section shows you how to create a mailing list.
First of all, you need to log into the web interface. Here are instructions on how to do so.
Once you have logged in, click on "Create list". If you choose to "Copy an existing list", the existing list must be one you already own. Type in the name you want the list to be called and click "copy list configuration".
Note that the mailing list name forms part of the email address of the list. Therefore the list name cannot contain spaces and should be formed from alphanumeric characters and hyphens only.
If you choose to "Create a list using a template", then type a name for the list.
Now choose a "List type" from the selection. Each list type will have it's own set of default configuration parameters.
Type in the Subject, then choose a Topic which closely relates to your list.
Finally type in one or two lines for the list description, then click on "Submit your creation request".
Please note, the list will not be created straight away. It needs to be validated by the listmaster. You will be notified by email when your list becomes active.
