Here are some of the terms that are used frequently in the MailUp documentation.
The administration console area that MailUp users access to create, send, and track messages. In the MailUp system, it's often a synonymous of "account".
All data in MailUp is structured in independent LISTS: they allow you to manage different brands/companies/clients/etc. within the same MailUp account, or different newsletters (e.g. different topics, different languages, different frequency, etc.).
LIST GUID: An alphanumeric, unique identifier for each List. Whereas the List code (e.g. List number 5) exists in multiple MailUp accounts, the List GUID uniquely identifies the list, across all MailUp accounts. It can be located under Settings > Edit Lists.
An individual message. Since MailUp is a multi-channel marketing system, a "message" could be an email, text, or social message.
Same as "message", but only for the "email" channel. In other words, when we say "newsletter" in this documentation, we refer to an individual e-mail message.
Contacts in your LISTS are called recipients: that's why they are there: to receive information from you .

In MailUp a recipient is always in one of 3 statuses:
Every contact in the system has its information saved into up to 39 recipient fields (also called personal data fields)
They can be applied to the personal data fields and allow you to dynamically create subset of contacts, based on the conditions listed in the filter(s). Groups and filters can be used at the same time to further segment your contacts database.
A subset of contacts. Contacts can belong to multiple groups (similarly to “Categories” in MS Outlook). A group can be created or deleted at any time. The contacts that it contains will not be affected. When importing contacts, you can specify one or more groups.
The key field in the MailUp contacts database. Subscribing and unsubscribing is List-specific, so the same e-mail can be a subscriber in one List and not in another.
Each MailUp Console has a unique Web address: a unique "third-level" domain that identifies the MailUp account on the Internet. For example, "v73.s02.it".
