    Default Self Service Distribution Lists

    Has anyone come up with a way to allow users to self service distribution list membership? It would seem like this would be a very common task that admins would not want to have to deal with 100 times a day. I have googled and searched the forums here but everyone still seems to manage their distro groups for the business instead of letting users join/leave/create themselves.

    You mean something like a Listserv?

    Basically yes, thats what we are trying to get to. The beauty of Google was that our users could join and unjoin mailing groups on their own. They could also create mailing groups as well.

    Well, in that case the challenge as I see it is that what Zimbra terms a "distribution list" is considered a group email address by other email packages. Kerio Connect, for instance, has an actual mailing list feature that works similar to a Listserv server.

    Since I can't find anything of the sort on the Zimbra Bugzilla, you may want to file a Request for Enhancement at https://bugzilla.zimbra.com .

    Hello ccelis,

    did you eve come to a solution?
    I can let our users to successfully unsubscribe from the dist list but I cannot find a way to let them subscribe. They basically do not know about the existence of distribution lists they are not members of.

    Hello, sorry i didn't have time to try this feature. Did you try the search bar?.

    Anyways think you have to let them kown that lists exists and the purpose of each one.
