Mailing Lists - Add an Owner to an Email list

This article explains lists ownership types and how to add an owner to an email list via the Mailing Lists service.

To add an owner to an email list, select the email list from the left navigation bar. Click Admin, then Edit List Config, then List definition. To add an additional owner, enter the new owner's email address and other information to the blank fields below the original owner(s). If you enter information in the Name field, DO NOT use a comma in the name. If you wish the owner to be able to have full access to all ownership functions, select "Privileged" for Profile type. Click Update at the bottom of the page to save your owner preferences.

Ownership Types:

The original requestor of a list is the privileged list owner by default. This means that they have ultimate authority over the list with full access to change all settings.

A list owner is similar to a privileged list owner, but cannot add other owners or access/change the following settings for the list:

  • Who can send messages
  • Status of the list
  • Last update of config
  • Creation of the list
  • Serial number of the config

Both privileged list owners and list owners can manage the list's membership.

A moderator's role is to approve or deny messages that are sent to a moderated private list. A moderator cannot manage the subscriber list.
