Manage Sympa Mailing List Members

Purpose

In this article, you can find information on how manage the members of a Sympa Mailing List.

To manage a Sympa list, you must either be an Owner or a Moderator:

  • Owners: Owners are managing subscribers of the list. They may review subscribers and add or delete email addresses from the mailing list. If you are a privileged owner of the list, you can choose other owners for the mailing list. Privileged owners may edit a few more options than other owners.
  • Moderators: Moderators are responsible for moderating messages. If the mailing list is moderated, messages posted to it will first be passed to the moderators, who will decide whether to distribute or reject it.
    • Defining moderators will not make a list moderated; you must set the "send" parameter.
    • If the list is moderated, any moderator can distribute or reject a message without the knowledge or consent of the other moderators. Messages that have not been distributed or rejected will remain in the moderation spool until they are acted on.
