On IU List, how can I add an owner/moderator to, or remove an owner/moderator from, my mailing list?

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

Adding an owner or moderator

In IU List, an owner has the responsibility of managing list members (including subscribers, moderators, and other owners); a moderator, also called an editor, has responsibility for messages that are sent to a moderated mailing list. If a moderated list has no moderator, the owner will have that responsibility.

Adding a moderator to your mailing list will not by itself moderate your list. You also need to ensure that your sending options require moderation; see On IU List, how can I restrict who can send to my mailing list?

To add an owner or moderator to your mailing list:

  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 Edit List Config tab or link.
  4. Click List definition.
  5. Under "Owner" or "Moderator", add the email address of the owner or moderator you want to add. For owners, you can select either a normal or privileged profile; the latter enables more administration options, including the ability to add other owners.

    Note: Adding an owner or moderator to a list does not automatically subscribe that address to the list.

  6. At the bottom of the page, click Update.

Removing an owner or moderator

To remove an owner or moderator from a list, delete the email address and then click Update.
