Doc How to manage the mailing list


Outline of procedure:

People who are in the mailing list (registered through website) are “Contacts” in CiviCRM.  To manage these, go to the back end / Component / CiviCRM / Find Contacts.


  • In the middle drop down list, select “Mailing List Group”, then click Search
  • You will be presented with everybody who has subscribed to Mailing List (result about 500)


  • Since all members are supposed to subscribe to Mailing List, the list actually include both FESAus Member AND Those subscribe to mailing list only
  • Repeating the above procedure, but searching for “FESAus member” will give you the list of FESAus Member ONLY (result about 200)
  • Subtracting one list from the other, you can get those who’s subscribed to Mailing list but NOT member.


  • As of Sep. 2009, the actual mailing list is and it is managed through the Hostmonster cpanel.
  • Access to this functionality should be very limited, only to the absolutely required (e.g. treasurer + administrator).  If you feel that you need access, please contact the webmasters

Please treat this information confidentially, particularly your user id and password for FESAus website administration.
