The marketing_email module manages mailing lists.

Mailing List

A mailing list groups emails under a name and a language

It stores emails for a mailing list and provides links to the related party or web user.

Two actions are available:

  • Request Subscribe which sends an e-mail to confirm the subscription to a list.

  • List: the list of addresses to send the message to.

A wizard is available that sends a message to a unique e-mail address from the list for test purposes.
