mailing list
Last modified: Friday, December 12, 2003 

A list of e-mail addresses identified by a single name, such as [email protected] When an e-mail message is sent to the mailing list name, it is automatically forwarded to all the addresses in the list.

Most e-mail clients support mailing lists, which enables you to broadcast e-mail messages to groups that you define. In addition, there are mailing list servers that manage centralized mailing lists for groups of users.
