Create and Manage Mailing Lists in cPanel

How to create and manage mailing lists in cPanel

Mailing lists allow you to send emails to multiple recipients in one go. This feature is very useful when you need to send a newsletter or another update to a group of people. 

NOTE: In order to prevent spam sending on servers we have implemented the following outgoing limits for our shared packages (so, if you have a mailing list with 20 recipients, 20 emails will be sent out): 

  • Value, Professional, Reseller plans – no more than 200 emails per hour per domain
  • Ultimate plan – no more that 500 emails per hour per domain
  • Business SSD plan – no more than 1000 emails per hour per domain.
