email list forwarding
I like being able to send email to our list of members, and I like being able to have them maintain their own contact info via their profile.
I hate your email/HTML editing tool, it's just horrible.
Can you please give me a way to simply have an email list address to which I can send an email from my favorite email client and it will forward to the membership list? I don't really care about link or open tracking.
Example: send an email to email@example.com. It forwards to all members (or whatever search subset I define when I create the email name "members") anything I send to it.
Actually, after thought, I'd probably need to send it to "firstname.lastname@example.org" or something since you are not my email provider by default, but I'd be fine with that.
Simple to use.

I'm trying Wild Apricot as a GroupSpace alternative and the lack of an alias per group is a major disadvantage of WA. It means there is no simple, quick solution to email communications with members. If each group, membership level or saved search had an alias e.g. email@example.com it would free up the admins to administer the system and allow the best communicators (not necessarily that happy with complex newsletter creation processes) to communicate with membership groups. Giving certain members permissions based on their from address to send to a group without having more full email permissions allows a more democratic approach to organisational communication without the training requirements of full newsletter capability. Allowing the app to send emails with simplified templates to membership groups exposed through the app would be another way to simplify things.
