Delete One E-list Member via Email Commands (Lyris)

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)

Only list administrators may delete (also called remove and unsubscribe) members other than themselves from an e-list.

To delete one member, send an email message to  

where listname is the name of the list including the hyphen and the letter L at the end of the list name.

Your message needs three lines of text, based on the following syntax:

login password

delete emailaddress



  • password is your password as administrator of the e-list
  • emailaddress is the full address of the member being removed

The message must be sent in plain text, that is, no formatting, font styles, or HTML code. (How do I send plain text?)

Here's an example:

Optional: To remove this address without having Lyris send a "you have been unsubscribed" message to the former member, put the word "quiet" (no quotation marks) at the end of the "delete" line.
