Mailing lists

Send a single message to several recipients on the basis of specific groupings  


You can send information to all of the subscribers of a mailing list via a single e-mail address. Messaging and the daily management of the list is performed by appropriate software installed on the server allowing subscribers of a list to reply to and message all other members using a discussion system via e-mail messaging. 

Very popular with users wanting to receive information about the latest developments in a business sector or exchange information with a group of people with a common interest in a specific topic, mailing lists may also be used for sending newsletters to contacts/interested parties. In the education and research sector, these lists prove to be particularly useful for sharing and exchanging ideas. They can help streamline daily tasks; for example, among colleagues in different secondary schools teaching the same subject or employees in several institutions working on a joint research project. There can be as many mailing lists as there are different interests in a potential topic. 


The Restena Foundation provides eligible institutions with list administration services or a list robot, allowing them to create and manage mailing lists. As a programme interpreting mailing list commands, one of the things this list robot does is to subscribe and unsubscribe members or retry sending if there is a problem with mail reception.

Eligible institutions can benefit from a web interface allowing their employees designated as administrators to manage one or more mailing lists and to set the terms of use for:

  • subscription, free or subject to approval
  • sending messages, open to all or restricted to subscribers
  • moderation, internal messages only being sent after confirmation by the moderator(s)

Once the mailing list has been set up, you simply send an e-mail to the mailing list for the message to be automatically distributed to all of its members.
