On IU List, how can I view a log of my list's activity?

Note: Only list owners can perform the actions in this document.

Using the web interface

  1. Log into the campus IU List website for your list; see What is IU List, and how do I use it?
  2. Find the correct list on the left-side panel, and click Admin.
  3. Select the Logs tab or link.

From here, you can search by specific message ID or by email address of subscriber.

To view all the logs of the list, leave all fields blank and click View. The list will show the IP address of the owner making a change, whether the change is successful, and the email address of the owner. Moderation requests and approvals, subscription additions and removals, and error messages for the list are viewable from this panel. Logs more than 30 days old may be periodically removed from the list.

Click Search by type to restrict your search to only certain types of events; e.g., selecting list_management will show only changes to your list configuration and who made them, including the list administrator.

Using email commands

Using email, only very limited data is accessible. You can send the following command to the campus IU List administrative address (e.g., list@iupui.edu):

  STATS listname

You will then receive via email a basic statistical readout, showing the number of messages sent and total bytes sent via that list. These simple statistics are enabled by default, and you can make multiple STATS requests in a single mailing.
