Member

The member command allows you to act upon a pending member of a moderated mailing list.

The only options for the member command are to either approve or reject a membership application to a private mailing list.

The syntax of the member command is:

    member approve member-id …
    member reject member-id …

You can specify more than one Member ID on the member command line.

If you are a list administrator set to receive admin mail, and your mailing list is set to private, then you will receive email notifications of applications to join your private mailing list. The notification message will include the member command you need to send back to approve or reject the member. In addition, if there are any other pending members, these will also be listed, at the bottom of the notification message, along with commands to approve or reject them.

Example

Here is an example of a notification message an administrator receives when someone applies to join a private mailing list:

    List: test-l
    Name: Some Name
    Email: adasf@lyris.com

    A request from 'adasf@lyris.com' to join the private list 'test-l' has been received.

    Their subscription request will not be activated until an administrator approves it.

    You are now a member of 'test-l'.

If you reject a member, they will receive this email message:
