Unsubscribe from a Mailing List

This section covers how to unsubscribe from a mailing list. You can unsubscribe via the mailing list web interface or through an email message.

Unsubscribe via the web interface

Login to the web interface. Here are instructions on how to login.

Once you have logged in, click on "List of lists" and click on the list you want to unsubscribe from. On the left hand side, click on Unsubscribe to unsubscribe from the list.

Unsubscribe via email

Send an email to sympa@mlist.is.ed.ac.uk with nothing in the Subject: line and in the message body put the following:

UNSUBSCRIBE LISTNAME EMAIL

where LISTNAME is the name of the list you wish to unsubscribe from and EMAIL is an optional email address, useful if different from your "From:" address.

If you normally have an automatic signature at the end of your email, please put the word QUIT just before your signature.

For example.
