Pin Collecting Mailing Lists
A mailing list is a discussion group that occurs via mass email distributions. Unlike a newsgroup or a message board, each posting comes in the form of an email message that is sent to your personal email account. Subscribing and unsubscribing to a list is accomplished by sending a properly formatted email message to the list server or to the list moderator.
