E-list Configuration: Do Members Confirm Their Membership? (Lyris)

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


  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 Utilities.
  3. Hover over List Settings. A sub-menu will open.
  4. Select New Subscriber Policy.
  5. Click the gray Confirmation tab.
  6. For Confirm subscribes, select yes or no.
    • yes - all new members (whether a list administrator adds them or they send the join command) will receive a confirmation email message. They must respond (by clicking on a link in that message) before their membership will be activated. We recommend this setting.
    • no - new members become active as soon as they send the join command or a list administrator adds them.
  7. Click Save.
