To add an e-mail address to your list, log in to your account and click on the blue admin button next to the name of the list you wish to edit. After that click on the Manage Subscribers tab near the middle of the page. After clicking on the tab, look near the middle of the page and you'll see a section that says Add a user. Type in the e-mail address that you'd like to add in that box. From here you have a few choices. If you just want to add the person, click add. If you would like them not to receive an e-mail telling them that they've been added, check the quiet box. If you would like to add multiple people, click on Multiple add.
