Delete E-list Members by Searching via Lyris Web Interface

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


This method is only useful when the addresses you want to delete have something in common (for example, all addresses with "@cornell.edu").

  1. Log in to the Lyris administrator web interface.
    - How do I log in?
    - Take me to the login page.
  2. On the left, click Members.
  3. Select View Members.
  4. Click Find Members.
  5. You can search for members who match the criterion you specify. Choose from the following gray tabs:
    • Email Address - all or part of the address
    • Name - all or part of the name entered in Lyris
    • Domain - the part of the email address that comes after the "@" sign
  6. In the search box (which will have a label matching the tab you selected), enter the information that the members have in common.
  7. If searching by Email Address or Name, next to Look for select contains (unless you want to search for an exact match).
  8. Click Go. You'll be returned to the member list dialog box, but only the members who met your search criterion will be shown.
  9. Click Delete All In This View. You'll see a confirmation screen. You have the option here of including or not including any list administrators who matched your search criteria. We think it's a really bad idea to delete list administrators willy-nilly.
