On IU List, how do I add or remove subscribers?
Note: Only list owners can perform the actions in this document.
Using the web interface
- Log into the campus IU List web site for your list; see What is IU List, and how do I use it?
- Find the correct list on the left-side panel, and click
- Select the
Manage Subscriberstab or link.
From here, a variety of options are available, including deleting users, adding users, adding multiple users via copy/paste, dumping a list of users into a new window, or generating a list of pending subscriptions.
Using email commands
Send subscription or unsubscription commands to the campus IU List
administrative address (i.e.,
firstname.lastname@example.org ), as follows.
You may include multiple lines, each with a different command, in a
To add a user to the list:ADD listname user@host firstname lastname
To add a user to the list without notifying him or her:QUIET ADD listname user@host firstname lastname
To remove a user from the list:DELETE listname user@host
To remove a user from the list without notification:QUIET DELETE listname user@host
Most lists will require you to confirm this request, by sending a
confirmation code back to your original email address. It is possible
to disable this confirmation in the list configuration (if, for
example, you use automated scripts to manage your list): Go to your
list configuration screen via the web interface, and set the
permission for "Who can add subscribers" to
owner_noconfirm. This will weaken the security
of your list.
