Setting Preferences in This New Mailing List System

You can set your preferences for lists in THREE places: Global (this is your default), Email Address (if you have more than one), and by List.

Everyone should set their Global Preferences. These are the defaults unless you have something different in Email Preferences or List Preferences.

Global Preferences

Once you are logged in, click on your account name in the upper right-hand corner and then Mailman Settings. Or go to this URL:

We strongly recommend for Global:

Email Preferences

If you have more than one email address, click on Address-based preferences on that page which will take you to this URL:

Let’s say you have 2 email addresses and you always want one to have Digest. Change the delivery mode to Digest and click on save. These preferences take priority over your Global preferences.

List Based Preferences

Click on Subscriptions which will take you to this URL:

If there is a list where you want something different than your Global or Email preferences, then click on a list name in the List-based preferences and change the preferences.


The list-based preferences have highest priority, if those are not set, then email the system looks at email preferences. If those are not set, then Global preferences are used.
