If you are in control of a Knox e-mail distribution list, Webmail handles all administration duties. You can add/remove users or change the way e-mails on that list present themsleves (e.g. a constant word in the subject line or blurb at the bottom of the body text).
Instead of relying on Webmail, users may set up their e-mail through an e-mail client, such as Mozilla Thunderbird, which is free.
