Information for List Owners

List owners are responsible for the administration of their list and for overseeing the functioning of the list. List owners have certain privileges, such as adding and removing users from their list, approving or rejecting postings to moderated lists, manipulating addresses, etc. All administrative requests are author authenticated and password protected.

It is strongly recommended that Administrators approve postings before sending them out, to avoid unwanted emails. This setting is also the default, available in the Privacy Options of the configuration.

: Archiving is NOT supported except for class lists. Other lists that use archiving will be billed for disk space used.

The following Links will contain information for list managers (owners). It will be a plain-language explanation of all of the configuration screens and options for their list. These documents will not assume any great technical competence or access to the shell.
