Member Fields

The following "member" attributes are extracted from the person posting a message to a list. To substitute attributes from the person receiving a message (the recipient) see the Recip.XXX mail merge fields.

member.nameemail
The full name and email address of this member. For example, you might want each posting to your list to have a header which identifies the original author, as in:

    From: $subst('member.nameemail')

If a full name is not available, Lyris will only put the email address.

For example:

    Bob Smith <bob@somewhere.com>

or if no name is available:

    bob@somewhere.com

member.emailaddr
The email address of this member.

member.fullname
The full name of this member. For example, you might want each posting to your list to have a header which identifies the original author, as in:

This message was written by $subst('member.fullname')

member.password
The password of this member. In general, you would not want to include this in a list posting, since everyone who received the message would see the password. However, this field is useful in documents, such as the "hello" document, to inform the user of their password.
