E-list Configuration: "Reply-to" Address

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


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.

  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 Email Submitted Content.
  5. Click the gray Header Rewrites tab.
  6. You can choose to have replies go to the entire list, to the sender, or to an address you specify.

To make the replies go to the list,

make sure the Reply to box is empty.

To make the replies go to the original sender of the message,

type  author  in the Reply To box.

To make the replies go to a particular address (other than the list or the original sender),

type the email address in the Reply To box.

  1. Click Save.
