    Default Distribution Lists

    Hi All,
    I am the email administrator for our company and we currently use FirstClass as our email. We are evaluating other products in an effort to move away from FirstClass.
    I have just installed Zimbra Network Trial Edition, and have a question about distribution lists or maybe newsgroups. FirstClass has what they call conferences. For example, We have a conference called IT Requests. Users send requests to this conference. Permissions are assigned so that it is only on the IT administrators FirstClass desktops. If I create a distribution list in Zimbra called IT Request, am I able to share it so that it shows on specified desktops. I don't want to have to log into a separate account to monitor the email. Some of our users have 5 or 6 different conferences that they monitor and it would be cumbersome to open separate accounts for each.

    Thank You for your time,

    Distribution lists work like this:
    You send a mail to
    all applied members (see the admin console) get it as an email to their own accounts

    Therefore an IT admin won't have to login to another account.

    Hope that's a simple enough explanation

    Oh and forgot to mention
    you in postfix you can limit who can send to that distribution list
    (so say only users at your domain can email it etc)

    (this feature will be edventually added to the admin console-there's a RFE somewhere...)

    Temporary method:
    RestrictPostfixRecipients - ZimbraWiki
    Bug 7104 - Distribution List Restrictions
    Bug 9620 - Mail policies and access control for sending to distribution lists
    Other info:
    Restrict sending to certain domains - ZimbraWiki
