Email accounts. An email account has its own separate mailbox. An email alias has no mailbox of its own, but causes mail to be forwarded to another address. Also note that we support plus addressing, which lets you create a new email address at any time, without a predefined limit, by inserting a + (plus) or - (hyphen-minus) character and anything after it.

Mailing lists. Where mailing lists are supported by an account type, users are encouraged to limit the number of subscribers to just a few, and exercise great caution. Mailing lists run on the same server as everything else. If a mailing list is accidentally misused, or gets hacked and is used to send spam, our entire server may be added to any of a large number of block lists. This will cause loss of outgoing mail for all users.

There are sites on the Internet that will let you run larger mailing lists, or you can use any of a number of web-based discussion forums, of which Facebook and Twitter are the best known.

Git repository. All environments provide the git utility from the command line. This is a command of interest to software developers. The git repository mentioned in the table is a feature in Virtualmin that lets you create git repositories from the control panel, and access a git server from a remote location. You may also be able to remotely browse such a git repository via the web, but this feature might not work reliably.
