DynaMail is a Mailing List Manager which automatically creates mailing lists based on user attributes and a history of their message interactions. A DynaMail Mailing List Manager creates dynamic mailing lists by providing a single email address to which messages are sent. From there, messages are distributed to subscribers belonging to different mailing lists. In a DynaMail system there are no actual mailing lists stored on the system, the user attributes define the mailing lists which are computed and generated dynamically. These attributes are entered into the system using a Web-based system which allows users and administrators to configure the system to their needs.
