list server (mailing list server)

A list server (mailing list server) is a program that handles subscription requests for a mailing list and distributes new messages, newsletters, or other postings from the list's members to the entire list of subscribers as they occur or are scheduled. (A list server should not be confused with a mail server, which handles incoming and outgoing e-mail for Internet users.)

Two commonly-used list servers are listserv and Majordomo. Lyris is a list server that is free for users maintaining very small mailing lists and scales up in price for those managing thousands of mailing list subscribers.
