List Owner's Basic List Management Instructions
The main server address is LISTSERV@LISTSERV.FREDONIA.EDU, this is where you send the commands to be executed by listserv.
The list address is LISTNAME@LISTSERV.FREDONIA.EDU (where listname is the name of your specific list), this is where you send messages to all the members of the list.
Prepending the command word "QUIET" before any LISTSERV command that you issue on behalf of a subscriber causes LISTSERV to suppress any notification to the subscriber of the changes you have made.
These are the commands to maintain your lists' membership:
(Remember to send these messages to the LISTSERV@LISTSERV.FREDONIA.EDU address)
The formatting is provided to show the commands to be typed, but any messages sent to the Listserv address have to be sent in plain text format.
TO SEE WHO IS ON THE LIST
TO ADD MEMBERS
add listname e-mail-address Firstname Lastname
i.e. add en10001 email@example.com John P. Doe
You may add multiple subscribers at a time by sending the "bulk-add" command
QUIET ADD listname DD=X IMPORT
//X DD *
user1@address Firstname Lastname
user2@address Firstname Lastname
usern@address Firstname Lastname
The bulk method allows you to omit the full name if it is unavailable.
No notification will be sent to the new subscribers. You may wish to post to your list after adding everyone to let them know that the list is now ready.
TO DELETE MEMBERS:
del listname e-mail-address(notice that you DO NOT include the name)
quiet del listname * to delete all members on the list
You may delete multiple subscribers at a time by sending the "bulk-delete" command
QUIET DELETE listname DD=X BRIEF
//X DD *
You can have many of these command lines in a message, but one line per each address.
add en10002 firstname.lastname@example.org John Doe
quiet del en10001 email@example.com
quiet add en10002 firstname.lastname@example.org Jane Smith
