Create an E-list: 4. Set Your Administrative Password

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)

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 received confirmation that your list has been approved and is ready.

Here's the short version of what you need to do then (the email message will have all the details):

  1. The message you get telling you that your list is ready will include a link to a web site where you'll enter the email address you specified when you requested the creation of your list.
  2. Lyris will send a message to that email address with a link to the "reset password" page. (Depending on the time of day and the amount of traffic the list server is handling, that message may be sent within seconds; it will almost always arrive within 10 minutes.) For security reasons, that link will only be valid for one hour. (This is why we said you need to stay at your computer; if you don't get to the reset page in time, start over at step 1.)
  3. You'll click on the link (or cut and paste it into your browser) to go to the reset password page.
  4. On the reset password page you'll type in your new password.
