How a mailing list works
Mailing lists existed long before web forums, are easier and more convenient to use, and can present a web-forum-like interface via their web archive. Here is how they work in a nutshell:
  • A mailing list is nothing more than a robot which has its own e-mail address. This e-mail address is the mailing list address.
  • The robot maintains a contact list of e-mail addresses and names, who are understood to be the subscribers of the mailing list.
  • When the robot receives an e-mail, it sends a copy of that e-mail to each of the subscribers of the mailing list, taking care not to send to to those subscribers who are already listed as To: or Cc: recipients.
  • The e-mail appears to come from the original sender, with the mailing list address being added to the CC: list. It is possible to reply privately to the sender using your e-mail program's reply, or to reply to the mailing list by using reply-all which keeps the robot in the conversation loop, thereby reaching everyone on the list.
  • Not all list traffic goes through the robot. Replies go directly to the people in the To: and Cc: list.
  • In addition to redistributing the mails that it receives, the mailing list robot also maintains an archive of messages, and creates a web site where past messages can be searched and viewed
  • The robot has a few other e-mail addresses, including one where it can receive commands from users, via e-mail, to subscribe or unsubscribe. The robot also has a web interface for subscription management.
