A mail list is a list of
constituents created for the purpose of mass emailing or postal mailing. A mail
list may be created in one of two ways.
Create A Mail List from A
Relationship Screen (eg: Donors)
screens like Donors have a “Filter List" function that allows your list to be narrowed down by selecting specific criteria and filtering the list.
After filtering the list you can use the "Add List To Mail Room"
button above the list to create a mail list from your results.

Donors with The Donor Type Board Member, for example...

menu on the left-hand side of the screen choose Donation Management >
Click the "Filter
List" button above the list.
The Filter List panel will open
above the list.

The list will display
only donors who are designated as board members.
Click the "Add List To
Mail Room" button above the grid.
A window will open. Type
a title for your new mail list in the Mail

Choose to make an Email List, US Mail List or both under Select
The List Type(s) You Want To Create and click "Add This List".
The window will close.
