Thanks for the clarification, and the quick answer, but that isn't what I'd intended. Perhaps I didn't explain clearly enough.
I manage another list, hosted elsewhere, that has been down for a few days now. It's a discussion list, for people concerned about coal mines and coalbed methane development on Vancouver Island, with about 100 subscribers. The associated domain, www.coalwatch.ca, will explain the immediate project.
So I figured I'd create one in the Dreamhost account. I wanted to add the list of subscribers from the not functioning list to the new list at Dreamhost, but all I could figure out how to do was add email addresses, when what I want to do is add their email addresses and names. That's what my post to the discussion forum was asking. It's a one-time only "mass" subscription of only about 100 people. After that, it's just maintenance.
"Mass" is not my term, it's the term for the function I want, which is used on the list management control
It's definitely a discussion list I want, though, as we need to be able to talk on the list, not just listen.
Does that sound okay? No mass posting. No spam. Ever.
Can you answer my question about how I add the names with the email addresses?
