ARCHIVED: In LISTSERV, how do I set up a moderated list?

Note: IU retired its LISTSERV system in spring 2012, replacing it with IU List, a new mailing list service. See What is IU List, and how do I use it?

A moderated LISTSERV list requires a human editor or moderator to approve messages before they're posted to the list. An editor can send postings without going through a moderator; a moderator receives and approves a message before it's posted to the list.

Note: The steps in this document involve editing the list header; see ARCHIVED: On my LISTSERV list, how can I modify the list header?

To set up a moderated list, choose one of the following options:

  • Set your Send keyword to: Send= Editor,Hold,Confirm

    With this setting, LISTSERV will send all postings to the moderator and hold them for a period of time (usually seven days) until the moderator confirms the message with the OK mechanism. For more, see ARCHIVED: On my LISTSERV list, what does the Send keyword do, and what are the possible settings?

  • To add an editor to your list, add the following to your list's header, replacing username@email.domain with the email address of the editor: Editor= username@email.domain

  • By default, the moderator is set to be the owner. To change or add a moderator, add the following to your list's header, replacing username@email.domain with the email address of the moderator. Moderator= username@email.domain

Note: An editor is not required to be a moderator, but a moderator should always be listed as an editor.

For more, see the List Owner's Manual for LISTSERV.
