Setting up a moderated list

You may wish to configure your list so that it becomes a moderated one. A moderated list is one where postings to the list are checked before being passed onto the list.

If you have not already done so, please login to the web interface.


Click on My Lists to show the lists you own or are subscribed to.

Select the list you want to change to moderated by clicking on the list name.

Under List configuration click on Change who can post to this list.  

In the drop down menu under Who can send messages select one of the options which contains the word moderated. There are a number of different options available. If you click on SCENARIO SOURCE then it would show you the logic applied for the currently selected option.

Once you have chosen, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Apply modifications to commit changes.

Please bear in mind, if a moderated list has no moderator, then the postings to the list will go to the list owner(s) for approval instead.

If you do not wish to receive these messages, then you must add a list moderator.
