How to add/delete someone from a listserv if you are an owner of a listserv: 
Example: Send email to admin@list.murraystate.edu
**leave subject line blank** 

ADD mylist@list.murraystate.edu jdoe1@murraystate.edu
ADD mylist@list.murraystate.edu jsmith@murraystate.edu
DEL mylist@list.murraystate.edu jane.doe@murraystate.edu

QUIT 

NOTE: With these commands, each person that you added/deleted would get an email informing them they had been added/deleted from the listserv.

 

To add/delete people without an email being sent to the user

QUIET ADD mylist@list.murraystate.edu jdoe1@murraystate.edu
QUIET ADD mylist@list.murraystate.edu jsmith@murraystate.edu
QUIET DEL mylist@list.murraystate.edu jane.doe@murraystate.edu

You can put multiple commands in a message. These commands must appear in the message body and each line must contain only one command.

Available commands are:

HELp

UNSubscribe <list> 
* To quit <list>. 
Example: UNSubscribe mylist@list.murraystate.edu jane.doe@murraystate.edu

* For example, QUIET subscribe test-list@list.murraystate.edu

QUIT
* Indicates the end of the commands (to ignore a signature)

 

The following commands are available only for lists owners or moderators:
