Subject Line Tags: Use for more List structure.
If your Mailing List needs added structure, consider using Subject Tags.
You can limit messages to your List, based upon the start of the Subject Line.
Subject tags are one-word categories added to the beginning of a subject line. They can be customized to your List's needs.
Any Mailing List might use tags such as ADMIN for list administration emails, and MISC for general or off-topic emails. Subject Tags can also be specific to your List's main purpose.
For example, a Mailing List on "controlling clutter" might use tags such as:
TIP for helpful hints.
TASK when inviting others to participate in a cleanup challenge.
SUCCESS for announcing what they've accomplished.
Requiring tags can also prevent spam messages sent by a Subscriber's hijacked account from ever reaching your membership.
A spammer won't know that a tag is required to send messages to your List.
Subject tags require the subject line of an incoming message to meet certain requirements before being sent to the Mailing List.
