Distribution Lists
A distribution list is a group of email addresses contained in a list with a common email address. When users send to a distribution list, they are sending the message to everyone whose address is included in the list. The address line displays the distribution list address; the individual recipient addresses cannot be viewed.
When a Zimbra user’s email address is added to a distribution list, the user’s account Member Of page is updated with the list name. When a distribution list is deleted, the distribution list is automatically removed from the Member Of page.
The Hide in GAL check box can be enabled to create distribution lists that do not display in the Global Address List (GAL). You can use this feature to limit the exposure of the distribution list to only those that know the address.
