From the image above, “Delete” will remove the mailing list, “Change Password” will change the mailing list password without the need to fill in the old one, “Manage” will take you to the mailing list admin dashboard and “Delegation” will assign administrative priviliges to available users(email accounts in your cpanel).

The image below shows how you can perform the delegation function.(Select the account, push it to the administrator list then save.)

Please note: Do not delegate mailing list administration to virtual accounts that you do not trust. Delegation will give this virtual user a means by which they could take over the cPanel account.

You can also add many subscribers manually and all at one go. Click the “manage’ function to go to the mailing list admin dashboard and click on “Membership Management“.
