Configure and manage an Announcement List

Overview

This article describes how to configure and manage an Announcement List.

Your domain must be Fully Hosted before you can use an Announcement List.

Configuring the list

  1. Navigate to the Announcement Lists page.
  2. Click the Add New Announcement List button.
  3. Enter the following:
      • Email address of the list: Enter the email you want to create as the list email. Also, make sure that the dropdown menu to the right is populated with the domain you want the list to be created under.
      • From name: Enter the name of your list or newsletter here.
      • Default Announcement Subject: This is an optional field where you can enter the subject of your message.
      • Unsubscribe Directions: This notice appears at the bottom of each announcement you send off in case the user no longer wishes to receive this email. HTML code entered here is rendered properly. However, you need to make sure to check the Is this HTML? checkbox on the final page when sending.
    The remaining fields are optional URLs you can create to customize the user experience. Adjust them as needed.

    The Confirmation Email Message character limit is 397. 

  4. When complete, click the Create This List button at the bottom of the page.

Editing the list

  1. Navigate to the Announcement Lists page.
  2. Click the Edit button to the right of the list. The edits page opens, allowing you to make your adjustments.
  3. Make your changes to the list. There are only a few fields that can actually be changed after clicking the 'Edit' button for the list in question:
    • From Name
    • Default Announcement Subject
    • Unsubscribe Directions
    • Remove Bad Addresses
    • All of the URL fields
  4. Click the Edit Announcement List button to save your changes.

You cannot change the list name after it's been created. You must delete it and create a new list with the new name.

"Remove Bad Addresses"

After you create the list and click the Edit button, you'll see a new option titled 'Remove Bad Addresses' where you can choose to remove email addresses from your list after a specific number of bounces. You can also set it to 'Never' so no address is ever removed.
