Thanks for the input. With bulletins, the expiration date/time is that part that doesn’t really fit into this use case. The admin would either have to always login & set an arbitrary expiration (long enough so that all users login in time
to see it, but short enough so that a new user a year later doesn’t get flooded with old messages that don’t apply anymore) or leave the expiration off and go back and remove Existing Bulletins. Both of which are still a manual process for the end-user/administrator.
The desired functionality would be to send an email to something like
email@example.com and have it deliver an email to all the current users at that point in time.
Then 3 months down the road, users have been added/removed, etc… so at that time emails sent to
firstname.lastname@example.org would go to the current updated group of users.
I know it’s possible to setup domain-specific Authent address books by creating a Surgeweb shared address book with Read: “*”, Write: “READ ONLY” & Type: “Authent”. In Surgeweb, you have to manually check all the boxes under this Authent
address book to send an email to all users. Is there a way to set an email address like
email@example.com to send an email to all the users listed in this Authent database?
Just trying to remove all the manual pieces for the end-user if possible.

Subject: Re: [SurgeMail List] Mailing list with all users
Check out the bulletin feature. That should do what you want.
Is there a way to setup a mailing list (dlist) so that it will always contain all active users? As accounts get removed/deactivated, can a list be set to always stay current for a particular domain?
