Listserv commands

This feature is only available to domain administrators.

Listserv commands allow you to control the list through commands sent in email messages to the listserv command address. By default, the command address for a domain is "STServ@example.com", where example is the name of your domain. However, your system administrator may change this command address.

To send a command, compose an email to the command address with the command in the body of the message. The subject of the message is ignored.
