How can I make a private list?
You can create Private mailing lists with Lyris. A private mailing list is one where only people who a list administrator as personally approved are allowed to join the mailing list.
With a private mailing list, people can request to join the mailing list, by filling out the Join web page or sending in an email request. With a private list, people who request to join are not
enabled until the list administrator approves them. Whenever someone requests to join, the list administrator(s) can receive notification of the join request, and approve or reject them.
To create a Private mailing list, create a mailing list as you normally would, using the Create Mailing List web page. For the Security setting, be sure to choose Private. See
After you have created your list, you will want to create a member who is a list administrator, and who receives the email notifications of the join requests. Go to the Member Create web page, and
fill out the name and email settings, and any other settings you want to change. For this member, make sure that they are set to be a List Administrator and that they are set to receive
administrator mail, such as join requests. See Create Member.
Now, whenever someone asks to join the mailing list, you will receive an email notification of their request. You will then be able to approve or reject them with a email command, and the
notification message will tell you which commands to send back to approve or reject the person.
