Poster Whitelist and Blacklist

The poster whitelist and blacklist allow you to have control over which subscribers are allowed to post messages to the list.

Use the whitelist to set the email accounts for people who are permitted to post to the list. This list is added to the email accounts that fall under the Allowed Posters option that is set in General Settings. In addition, this list will not be used unless you enable the "enable poster whitelist" option in General Settings.

Use the blacklist to block specific subscribers from posting to your list. This list is always active, and is a good way of preventing those that have sent questionable content from doing so again.

The poster whitelist and blacklist pages function the same as the subscriber list page.

Add Addresses - Click on this button to add one or many email addresses to the list. Ensure that you enter one email address per line when adding them. Duplicates will not be added.

Actions menu - Use this menu to perform functions to upload and download the list.

  • Download - Downloads the list as a text file, with one line per email address.
  • Upload - Use this option to upload a list file to the server. This file must be in .txt format with one line per email address
  • Delete All - Deletes all email addresses in the list. A confirmation dialog will appear. Once you have deleted the addresses, it is not possible to get them back, so it is recommended that you first download the list before deleting the users.

Delete Link - Click on the delete link next to an email to remove it from the list.

Search - Use the search button to find a specific email address in the list quickly.
