ARCHIVED: At IU, how do I unsubscribe from a LISTSERV mailing list?
At Indiana University, you can unsubscribe from a LISTSERV list via email or via the LISTSERV web interface.
On this page:
Unsubscribe via email
Note: For Indiana University LISTSERV mailing lists, send all commands to the appropriate address for your list:
|IU South Bend||
Never send commands to the address of the mailing
list (e.g., to
email@example.com ). Send
only messages intended for members of the list to the list's address.
To unsubscribe from a LISTSERV list, send the following line in the body (not the subject) of a mail message addressed to the LISTSERV server:unsubscribe listname
listname with the name of the list from which you
want to unsubscribe.
For example, to unsubscribe from a list called NT-DEMO-L, you would send the following message to LISTSERV:unsubscribe nt-demo-l
LISTSERV will send you a mail message acknowledging your request.
If you get an error message, try again, using the email account that
you used to subscribe yourself; most unsubscription problems occur
because the email address on the list does not match the address from
which you send the
unsubscribe command. If that doesn't
work, see If you cannot unsubscribe below.
Unsubscribe using the LISTSERV web interface
For information about using the LISTSERV web interface, see ARCHIVED: At IU, how do I access the web interface for LISTSERV list management?
Once you have accessed the web interface:
Log In. You will be required to log in using your LISTSERV personal password. For more, see ARCHIVED: In LISTSERV, how do I set or change a personal password?
