    So this might be a little archaic, but what I'm looking for is a free email list service. I want one that doesn't require members to create an account (like collaboration services require), and in which sign up is easy (either entering their email address on a site or emailing the list with a certain word in the subject). Then I want any of the members to be able to email the "master" email address, and have that forwarded to all the email addresses on the list.

    There will only be a couple dozen members, and it's just to inform everyone across multiple devices on a meeting time.

    The reason I don't want to use basic forwarding in gmail or whatever is because I'd have to manually enter every email address, and I'd rather have a more automated system.

    Hmmm... I'm not really well versed on various email providers, but these are the three I know of..

    > gmail
    > yahoo
    > outlook

    But I don't those meet your requirements. Good luck.
    :(

    For free email services, you really get what you get. If you need something very specific, you may want to look for a paid Email service. But from experiences, I really like Outlook and Gmail. If you use a lot of Google services, then Gmail is best, but I believe in looks, outlook is the prettiest. lol

    Yeah I thought it was a long shot... I just wanted something a little more specific to my needs but it's absolutely not worth paying for.

    My friend Google just told me about free mailing list services. :D

    Worst case scenario, you could just provide a list of e-mail addresses to all the members, and when they want to send something to the list they just use their e-mail client's method of sending the message to all members of a particular group. Not pretty, not sophisticated, but it would work.
