When you consistently want to mail to the same group of people, you can set up a special recipient name called an alias. For example, a hospital could create an alias called "nursing" that lists the e-mail addresses of all the directors of nursing. To send a message to all the directors of nursing, you simply specify "nursing" in the "To:" line and the same message will be sent to everyone on that list (alias).

Each mailing list resides at a specific computer and is looked after by a human administrator. The host computer is responsible for distributing incoming messages to all mailing list members. The administrator is responsible for maintaining the mailing list. Some mailing lists are also moderated. In these lists, there is a moderator who reviews each incoming message for appropriateness and either passes it through for distribution or rejects it.
