a program that sends and receives messages for subscribers of an e-mail discussion list.
Though a list may be moderated, the actual list of subscriber email addresses is likely managed with specially designed software called a list server. The list server receives and responds to email commands for subscribing and unsubscribing, as well as other commands that may be more complex. It will also deliver the email publication to the list at the request of the list manager. Each list server requires its own precise set of commands for each task. There are several popular list servers that manage many of the email lists in publication today; examples include: Majordomotm and ListSERVtm. It is also common for large list hosts to own their own proprietary software to run the lists they host.

automated email distribution system, one method of supporting discussion groups using email. The list is of email addresses of everyone who has joined the group (known as subscribers). A message posted to the group is sent to the list server which copies the message to every subscriber on its list. Each subscriber finds a copy of all the new messages from the group waiting in their mail. Also known as a ‘mailing list’. Many such lists are relevant to and subscribed to by teachers, such as SENCo forum and SENIT.
