    Question one-for-all email address

    Could someone who knows something about IT help me out? In a company, we have a special email address, like perhaps staff at abc.com. It is a one-for-all email address, which means you send an email to this address, everyone with @abc.com account could receive it. My question is, is there an official name for it? Some people call it distribution list. Is it correct?

    Thanks a lot!

    Emily

    Re: one-for-all email address

    Hello Emily

    I would call it an "all staff" email address.

    All the best,

    Thanks, Mr. Pedantric! But is "distribution list" correct or not?

    I just had a new thinking on that. This could be correct. That the "all staff" email address has a distribution list, which is usually maintained by the IT staff. Any comments?

    Hello Emily

    Yes indeed -- I would call the "all staff" email list (which as you say is usually maintained by the IT dept) an example of a distribution list.

    A "distribution list" is a group of email addresses that can be reached by sending an email to a single email address, e.g.

    USINGENGLISH
    MrPedantic @ UE.com
    EmilyW @ UE.com
    Tdol @ UE.com

    Here, USINGENGLISH is a distribution list that includes my, your, and Tdol's email addresses.

    All the best,

    MrP
