LAN - Local Area Network
A network that connects computers in a small, pre-determined area (like a room, building or set of buildings). LANs can also be connected to each other via telephone lines and radio waves. Workstations and personal computers in an office are commonly connected to each other with a LAN. This allows them to have send/receive files and/or have access to the files and data. Each computer connected to a LAN is called a node.

The list owner can choose to display a text string (entered in the Edit box) at the beginning of the subject line of every message sent to the list. For example, if you enter [Software-Info] as the defined text string, the subject line of the messages will appear as follows: Subject: re: [Software-Info] What do you think of private-labeled software?

Load Balancing
Load Balancing is the act of breaking apart what would traditionally be handled on one server into multiple servers. When a request is made to a virtual domain name, for instance, smtp.registeredsite.com, the Load Balancer chooses the physical server that has the most available resources and sends the request to that server. This improves performance overall and helps ensure a more reliable uptime.
