List Serv Commands

List Serv Commands allow you to control the list through commands sent in email messages to the List Serv Command Address. By default, the command address for a domain is "STServ@example.com", where example is the name of your domain. Your server administrator may change this command address for you.

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.
