Add or remove an owner or moderator on an IU List mailing list

On this page:


Before you begin

In IU List, a list owner has the responsibility of managing list members (including subscribers, moderators, and other owners); a list 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.

The person (or account) who requests a new IU List mailing list becomes the list sponsor, as well as an owner of the list by default. Lists may have multiple owners and moderators, but only one sponsor. Only the sponsor can rename or delete a mailing list.

Each list should always have a current sponsor with a valid University account. To request a change in list sponsorship (for example, in cases of changes in job responsibilities), email IU List Support with the list name, current sponsor, reason for change (retired, left IU, moved to another IU group, etc.), and new sponsor. To see the lists you currently sponsor, visit MAS IUlist, select the option to either delete or rename a list, and view the drop-down list.

Note:
Only list owners can perform the actions described below.

Add an owner or moderator

Notes:
  • 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 Restrict who can send to your IU List mailing list.
  • Adding an owner or moderator to a list does not automatically subscribe that address to the list.
  1. Log into the campus IU List website for your list:
    Campus IU List web interface
    IU Bloomington https://list.indiana.edu/
    IUPUI https://list.iupui.edu/
    IU East https://list.iue.edu/
    IU Kokomo https://list.iuk.edu/
    IU Northwest https://list.iun.edu/
    IU South Bend https://list.iusb.edu/
    IU Southeast https://list.ius.edu/
    IUPUC https://list.iupuc.edu/
    University-wide https://list.iu.edu/
  2. Click My lists, and select the name of a list.
  3. Under "List Configuration", click Modify owners or moderators (editors).
  4. You'll go to the "Owners" page. If you want to add a moderator instead, from the Users menu, select Moderators.
  5. Under "Add owners" or "Add moderators", enter the email address and name of the person you wish to add.

    For owners, you can choose to check the privileged owner box, which enables more options, including the ability to add other owners. (If you leave this unchecked, the owner will be considered a "normal" owner.)

  6. Click Apply modifications.

Remove an owner or moderator

Note:
Removing an owner or moderator does not automatically unsubscribe that address from the list, if it is subscribed.
