How do I administer Mailman mail lists?
Cookies Note: When working with your list, you must have cookies enabled in your web browser or the admin page may not work properly.
Administering your mail list via the web
You access the list administration web site for your mail list by logging on to http://lists01.stargate.net/mailman/admin/list_name, where list_name is the name of your mail list. To log on, type the password for your list into the List Administrator Password: field and click Let me in....
You may also go to
http://lists01.stargate.net/mailman/admin and select your Mailman Mail List from the list of Administrator Links.
On each page where you make a change, you must click the Submit Your Changes button at the bottom of the page to save the selected changes. If you do not click the "Submit Your Changes" button, your changes will not be applied.
After selecting and saving all changes, click Logout on your list administration page and then close your browser.
Security Note: Logging out and closing your browser eliminates the possibility that others could gain access to your mail list and make changes to the configuration/membership.
Below are a number of websites that describe how to use the Mailman mail list service. These pages provide detailed information for mail list administrators, moderators and subscribers.
Sending Commands via Email
To send Mailman email commands, the address will be:
firstname.lastname@example.org, where list-name is the name of your mailing list.
Send the command in either the subject line of the message or in the body of a message that is in plain text format. Note that rich or styled text messages result in errors; Mailman cannot interpret commands with extra HTML code used in rich or styled text, used to create the styles and formatting in those message types.
Type the command help to get a listing of all available commands that can be sent by email.
