What is a Moderator?

Moderators are the people you appoint responsible for Mailing List management. These are usually e-mail addresses to which users send requests for subscription and messages for approval. There can be several moderators, both for messages and subscription.

  • Message moderators allow messages to be sent to the mail list. The message will be passed on to the mailing list subscribers only if a moderator approves it.

  • Subscription moderators allow people to subscribe to the list. If at least one subscription moderator approves the request, the user address becomes a subscriber.

Most lists use the same addresses for all two functions.

The moderation address is kept secret, even from other moderators. The total number of moderators is displayed in the brackets.
