Mailing lists

Hampshire County Councils’ Mailing list system "Mailman" allows groups of people with a common interest to create a single mailing list to communicate with each other via email.

Features and Benefits

  • Account and full log on details for list administrator.
  • Automatically updated Web page providing archive of the emails posted to the list.
  • Administrator can manage list settings and list membership.
