This is a list of instructions for managing mailing list. If you can not find the information you need, please log a ticket via ihelp so we can provide the any necessary information.
Logging into the mailing list
Go to http://listserv.iup.edu
All mailing lists have an owner account. The owner account name is in the format owner-mailing-list-name. For example, if the mailing list address is email@example.com, the username entry would be owner-dept-acct.
Enter the password for the "owner" account.
Proceed with your mailing list maintenance.
Adding (or subscribing) e-mail addresses to a mailing list
When you are logged into the mailing list, you will see a folder list in the left pane. You will right-click on the list name folder (the one below the gray line, not the owner address). From the menu list that appears, choose List Settings...
Now click on the Subscription tab.
Removing (or unsubscribing) addresses from a mailing list
It’s easiest to use the filter when unsubscribing, particularly if your list has many subscribers.
When you have completed your list updates, click Log Out.
Adding (or subscribing) a group of addresses
In order to add many e-mail addresses at once, you will have to create a .txt document that contains all the of e-mail addresses you want to import. This document can only contain one e-mail address per line and must be saved as a .txt file.
Now click on the Subscription tab and you are ready to import your list of addresses.
Redirect a message to a moderated mailing list
When you are logged into the mailing list, you will see a folder list in the left pane. You will look at the folder under the list name folder (the one below the gray line, not the owner address). You will see three subfolders (approval, reports, and requests).
Any message sent to a moderated list will be delivered to the approval folder for the owner’s review. To review the message(s) in the approval folder, follow the below directions.
Recover disk space for a mailing list
When you are logged into the mailing list, you will see a folder list in the left pane. You will need to review these folders to delete messages from the mailing list. There is a quota bar near the bottom of the menu pane. This will show you how much space the list is currently using.
