1.  Compose an email. Be sure to send the email from the same email address that is registered with mail-list.com.

2.  Send the email to "[your list name here]-moderator@mail-list.com".

For example, if your list name is "eNews", then the email address to send your message would look like this:

eNews-moderator@mail-list.com

If you don't know your list name or password, please refer to the QuickStart Manual that we sent to you via email. If you are unable to locate it, please email us at mdm@mail-list.com. A copy of the QuickStart Manual can also be found here, but it won't have your personal list name or password.
