Deleting Members

Deleting members unsubscribes them from the list. Unsubscribed members are removed, and do not
receive messages posted to the mailing list.

Follow the instructions below to delete members from your list:

  1. From the Configuration Categories list at the top of the page, click on the Membership Management... link.

    With the Mass Removals section open, there are two ways to delete members. Either of these methods will leave your listserv intact, but remove all or certain members: 

Note: You can also contact the IT Help Desk to request a list membership purge. Your request will be forwarded to the appropriate IT personnel who will purge the entire membership for you. This will not change your list settings. Please provide the name of the list to purge with your request.

  1. Scroll down to the Member Address text box.
  2. Enter the addresses into the box with one address per line. They may be typed or copied from a spreadsheet.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Submit Your Changes button.
