On the list management screen some lists are listed as system lists, some as dynamic, and some have a number next to them. Can you explain what the difference between these three kinds of lists are?
A system list is built by the HaleyMail system and is reserved for newsletter mailings. They can not be deleted.
A dynamic list
is one defined with parameters and the contents vary as the users in
the database change. For example, a list of everyone with the last name
'Smith'. OK - that's a small list that doesn't change much :) But
whenever anyone with the name Smith is added, they would become part of
this list. BY their nature, the number of contacts on the list is
dynamic, and can vary right up until the moment the mailing is sent,
even after is has been scheduled.
A static list are
those lists with numbers next to them. These lists are usually built by
uploading a list. These are static, in the sense that they only change
when an administrator adds or removes contacts. Because of this, the
count is known at all times.
