Email Mailing Lists

You can use netAdventist Email Mailing Lists to create a 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 you will need to 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 the Add New List button.
  • 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 for this mailing list. Then scroll down and add your List Members. Enter a valid email address, first and last name, then select the Add Member button. Repeat this process with all members who need to be added to a mailing. Current members of your website 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. Note that only confirmed subscribers will receive posts. Subscribers will only receive posts from the point of confirmation; they will not receive older posts. You can click Edit across from the title to see who has confirmed. 
  • 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 may 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 Choose File button and selecting your file.  Select Open. 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 the Send Message button to send it. 
  • The email from the Mailing list can be viewed in your Inbox. Existing members can unsubscribe to an email list by selecting the unsubscribe link in one of the email posts.
