No its not spam! Listservers are to email people who want to hear from you. Calico UK offer the service of opt-in opt-out mailing lists for use for newsletters and updates for customers, colleagues and friends. You can also use listservers for online discussion groups and forums. It is becoming increasingly popular to subscribe to a listserv from a website, rather than remembering to revisit the website.
About the Service
Lists can be open discussion (read and write by all members) or distribution (read only by all members with read and write access by one named member). You may wish to use this type of list for simply distributing information to a group of people.
Subscribing and unsubscribing is done automatically by each member using standard Subscribe, Unsubscribe and Help email subject lines. Lists can also be "moderated" and the list owner can be given access to allow or deny subscriptions.
An initial customised welcome message can be setup and sent to all new subscribers setting out the "guidelines" for the List and the List commands they can use. We supply a template welcome message that can be customised to your own requirements and returned to us for inclusion in the list.
* Please note that listservs are not normally used for distributing file attachments.
There are three options for your listname:
There is no setup charge for lists on the listservers.co.uk domain, and each listserv is charged at £36 (£30 + VAT) pa per 250 subscribers. The minimum contract period is one year, invoiced annually.
|Subscribers||Price ex VAT||Price inc VAT|
|250 subscribers||£30 pa||£36 pa|
|500 subscribers||£60 pa||£72 pa|
|750 subscribers||£90 pa||£108 pa|
|1000 subscribers||£120 pa||£144 pa|
Their customer support is excellent and I would strongly suggest them to anybody.”
