Setting Sender Options

The "Sending/receiving setup" is used control the privacy of your list. It allows you to create a public or private list.

An announcement-only list should generally be kept private unless there is a need to have non-members request a membership or self-subscribe.  While a public list should force its members to authenticate their messages to the list for extra security.

  • When your list was setup and configured for you it should have been setup with a specific 
    "Who can send messages" Scenario, appropriate to the style of list you requested. If you wish to change this we would recommend opening up a support ticket with IT and reference your list address (ie [email protected]u) and detail the changes you wish to make.  While list owners can change this for themselves the choices are not exactly easy to figure out.
