E-list Configuration: Who Can See a List of Members? (Lyris)

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


This setting determines who, if anyone, can get a list of all the members of an e-list by using the review command.

  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. Hover over Discussion Group Features. Another sub-menu will open.
  5. Select Security.
  6. From the Security of member list drop-down to select the option you want:
    • Only allow the list administrator to obtain the member listing - use this setting to prevent everyone (except the list administrators) from receiving a list of all members.
    • Allow only members to obtain the member listing - use this setting to allow anyone who is a member of the list to see a a list of all members.
    • Allow anyone to obtain the member listing - we really really don't like this setting, which allows anyone to see a list of all members. This is a convenient way for spammers to acquire a pile of email addresses, which is a bad thing.
  7. Click Save.
