UWO faculty, staff, and student organizations can request a mailing list by contacting the help desk (firstname.lastname@example.org or (920) 424-3020). When the request has been processed, you will receive confirmation that the list was created, the URL for configuration, and the initial password to log in with.
All configuration for mailing lists is done through an interactive web form.
Input your list password to enter the administration mode
The first thing you need to do with a new list is change the password.
Click Passwords in the menu at the top of the page
Enter a new administrative password
Click Submit Your Changes
If this list is moderated, you may also set a separate password for list moderators if you don't want to allow administrator access
Most other options are fairly well described on the page. Initially you will probably want to make sure the "terse phrase identifying this list" accurately describes your list. You may also wish to include a longer description in the "introductory description" field.
Click Membership Management at the top of the page,
Click the Mass Subscribe link
Enter email address, one per line, in the first large box
Upload a plain text .txt file containing email addresses, with one per line
Click Submit button.
You must subscribe yourself if you wish to receive posts others send to the list. If the send welcome message option is selected, each user will receive a message containing the URL for the list home page, a randomly-generated password, and any text you have added to the welcome message. Additionally, you may wish to turn off subscribe/unsubscribe notifications if they are enabled (off by default).
Click Membership Management
Click Membership List
Click the unsub box next to each email address you want to unsubscribe
Click the button at the bottom of the page to unsubscribe those users
Similar to the process for mass subscription, there is a Mass Removal option to unsubscribe users in bulk by entering the addresses to remove.
