Membership Management

The Membership Management section allows you to control individual settings for each member of your list.

If there are less than 30 members of your list, they will all be displayed on one screen. If there are 30 or more, they will be displayed alphanumerically, as above. In this case we are looking at search results and only one email address is listed.

From this screen you may unsubscribe a member (unsub), change moderation for a member (mod), hide their email address from the list of members (hide), turn off delivery of mail (nomail), acknowledge mail sent to the list (ack), prevent the user from seeing their own posts (not metoo), prevent duplications of the same mail from being delivered (no dupes), set delivery option to digest mode (digest), and set if those digests should be sent in plain text (plain). You may also set the language (language), however Mailman is only set to allow English by default.

The nomail column will display the reason the member is not receiving mail. U means delivery was disabled by the user, A means delivery was disabled by an administrator, B means it was disabled by the bounce processing, and ? means Mailman could not determine a reason.


The search function uses regular expressions to allow you to search. You can use name or email address, or part of an email address.

This option allows you to change all members of the list's moderation option at once. This is useful if you change from a moderated list to an unmoderated one or vice versa. You will want to switch the setting of the default_member_moderation option in Sender filters also if you change your moderation rules. This is useful when you want to use this list as a "broadcast"-style list where one or two people send messages to a large group.


Mass Subscriptions

These options control how Mailman will handle any addresses entered into the text box below. The first allows you to decide if these addresses will be immediately subscribed or only invited to subscribe. The second option allows you to send welcome messages to those you subscribe in the text box below. The third option will allow you to send a list the new addresses you subscribe in the text box below.

Each address added to this text box will be subscribed or invited (as chosen in the first option above). Each address must be on its own line or Mailman will believe it is one long address (if you have person.1 @ and person.2 @ on the same line, Mailman will think the address is person.1 @ yoursite.comperson.2 @ If you wish to also add real names, the proper format is:
person.1 @ (Person1's Name)
person.2 @ (Person2's Name)


This textbox allows you to add any special text you want to have sent in addition to a welcome message, if you chose to send one in option 2 above.

When you submit your addresses, the page will reload with a list at the top of the page displaying those addresses just subscribed. It will also display any addresses it didn't understand because of a formatting issue and inform you those addresses were not added.
