Overview

You can accomplish a number of tasks in IU List by sending email commands to the administrative address for the campus that hosts a given mailing list. This address is in the form list@campus.edu; see About IU List.

To request a list of IU List commands for a specific campus, send an email message with a subject of HELP to the administrative address. You'll receive a reply listing the following commands.

You can put multiple commands in a message. These commands must appear in the message body and each line must contain only one command. Replace words in italics with the appropriate values, for example, list with the name of your list, or email with an email address. Any command with options list|* indicates you may use either a specific list name or a *, indicating all lists at a given campus domain, for the command.
