Email Mailing Lists


You can use netAdventist Email Mailing Lists to create a distribution list for group mailing. You can create various lists and send posts in a group mailing as needed.

The new training video hasn’t been created yet for this feature.
  • If you haven't already done so, Log in and go to the Dashboard. You are taken to the Site Content tab. If you haven't already activated the Mailing Lists in Extensions go to Settings and activate it. See the Extensions training video for further instructions if needed.
  • Select the Email Lists tab on the horizontal navigation bar at the top of the page. The Mailing lists index appears.
  • Select Add New List.
  • Enter a List Name and Description and select a Post Type for your email list.
  • Edit the Email Footer Content with anything you would like to have always included with posts sent from this email list, such as your church’s name, using tags by selecting the gold {{ tag }} cheat sheet bar. Leave the "You are subscribed to: {{ LIST_NAME }}<br />Please click here to unsubscribe: {{ UNSUBSCRIBE_URL }}" unchanged so that subscribers to this list can remove themselves in the future.
  • Set your Privileges and sharing for this mailing list. Then scroll down and add your List Members. Enter a valid email address, first and last name, then select Add Member. Repeat this process with all members who need to be added to a mailing. Current members will auto-complete when you start typing their email address.
  • Select Save. The new mailing list is created and added to your mailing lists index and an invitation email is sent to new members added as subscribers. Members can then subscribe to as many lists as they wish by selecting the subscription link.
  • To create and send a message select the New Post link next to the title of the group you want to write to. In the first field select the Mailing List you want to use. Enter your Email Subject. Then in the Body, enter a message for your email list. Presently the text body is plain text only. Editor tools will be added in the future.
  • Add tags to your message by selecting the gold {{ tag }} cheat sheet bar at the bottom of the body of the message.
  • Add Attachments to this post by selecting the Browse button and selecting your file. You can upload additional files by selecting the Upload another attachment link.
  • You can either select Send Message or save it as a draft. If you select Save as draft, when ready to send the draft post, select it by going to the Draft Posts folder in the left navigation bar and select the Email Subject. Then select Send Message to send it. 
  • Now select Shared Lists in the left navigation bar. This has mailing lists shared from other sites on netAdventist servers. Select the Browse available feeds button. 
  • From the available feeds select the Subscribe link. Next, select Done. The shared feed will display in the Shared Lists feeds index.
  • Existing members can unsubscribe to an email list by selecting the unsubscribe link in one of the email posts.
