To be clear, shutting down a list means the list goes away. The subscriber list is gone. All settings are gone. This is not like going on hiatus, or vacation, or sabbatical (see our Stop All Messages Temporarily article). This is gone.
Only list admins and list owners need Lyris passwords. List members do not have (and do not need) passwords. If you lose, forget, or otherwise want to change the password you use to manage a Lyris-based e-list, it's easy to do, but it requires some back and forth communication with CIT's e-list…
Any list administrator can configure an e-list to automatically distribute submitted messages to the list, or hold messages until an administrator has reviewed them. (See our List Configuration: Moderation page for details.) Let's start with some warnings.
One of your responsibilities as a list administrator is to keep your membership roster accurate and up-to-date. Lyris will help you by keeping track of the addresses that have problems (like not accepting mail delivery). There are two parts to this.
Cornell Information Technologies (CIT) is the university's central IT organization. CIT collaborates with the campus IT service groups (ITSGs) and a variety of partners and stakeholders to manage the IT infrastructure and provide university-wide services to the Cornell community.
See our E-list Configuration Overview for all options. The "Reply-to" setting is not a sure thing. The configuration you set in Lyris may be overruled by a user's email settings, or manually overridden by the user. Still, it's good to set the default behavior here.
Log in to the Lyris administrator web interface. - How do I log in? - Take me to the login page.
This is a complicated setting, because there are a few related choices for you to make. Your list will enforce the posting rules you've set in this order: Can non-Cornell addresses post? Is posting restricted to list administrators? Is posting restricted to list members? Here are some…
This setting determines who, if anyone, can get a list of all the members of an e-list by using the review command.

One of the responsibilities of an e-list administrator is to provide technical assistance to the list's subscribers. You'll get messages and calls from people around campus (possibly around the world) who need help. Your primary resource is this set of web pages. Here you should be able to find…
Your data must not include any commas. Each column must have a column heading. The EMAILADDR_ column is required. This column should contain complete email addresses only, with no extra characters.
Delete via Lyris Web Interface (Preferred Method) Only list administrators may delete (also called remove or unsubscribe) members other than themselves from an e‑list. This method will delete all members except those who have administrative rights.
See our E-list Ownership and Administration article and the other articles in the List Owners and List Administrator topics (displayed in the leftcolumn of all articles in the E-lists at Cornell site) for explanations of your responsibilities as a list owner, and the commands you can use to…
After all the steps in parts 1-4 of our guide have been completed, you should encourage people to join your new list. Announce its creation to those who might be interested in it, and give brief instructions on how to join. See our Help Your Members article for sample text.
When your list is ready, you'll get an email message (at the address you used when you requested the list). You'll need to pick a time when you'll be at your computer for the next 20 minutes or so to set your password. Do not continue with these steps or publicize your list until you have…
Now that you've made your choices, you need to fill out and submit an online form requesting your new e-list.
You will need this information to fill out our online form. You may wish to make a note of your choices on paper to keep a record of them. All fields can be changed later EXCEPT Name of e-list, Purpose, and Unit. Submitting false information will be viewed as a violation of the Campus Code of…
