Email Archive

The Email Archive tool allows site managers to specify an alias email address which essentially serves as a listserv, a method of communicating with a group of people via email. By default, email you send to the site email address is copied to the email addresses of all site participants and owners. All email messages sent to your site's email address are stored in this tool. You can use any email program to send mail to the email address listed at the top of your Email Archive page.

Site members can use Preferences in Home to choose how often they want to receive email sent to the site's email address: either as it is sent, or in digest mode, with all posts for the day sent in a single email message.

Note: You cannot use Email Archive to send mail to particular individuals. To contact individual participants, we use the Messages tool.

  • To access this tool, select the Email Archive tool from the Tool Menu in the site.
