Creating mailing lists

You can create mailing lists for notifications. A mailing list enables you to send one email message to multiple email addresses. These mailing lists are used to send notifications when an alarm is triggered or when a service state changes. You must create a mailing list before you can send notifications. To send a notification to a single recipient, create a mailing list with one email address.

Before you begin


  1. Select Configuration > Email Setup.
  2. From the Email menu, select Lists.
  3. Click Edit edit icon (or Insert insert icon if this is not the first mailing list).

    Email Lists page
  4. In the new row, add the following:
    Item Description
    Group Name Unique name used to identify the mailing list. Mailing list names cannot be duplicated.
    Note: If you change the name of a mailing list, the change is not propagated to the other locations that use the mailing list name. You must manually update all configured notifications to use the new mailing list name.
    Recipients Single email address, a previously configured mailing list, or a comma-delineated list of email addresses and mailing lists to which notifications will be sent.
    Template Optionally, select an email template to add a unique header, footer, and subject line to notifications sent to all recipients of this mailing list.
  5. Click Apply Changes.
    A new mailing list is created.
