Sending a Command
LISTSERV® has a powerful command interpreter that allows you to perform most list-related tasks by email.
To send a command, open a new email and complete it as follows:
- The To: address should be LISTSERV@JISCMail.ac.uk
- The subject is ignored by LISTSERV, so can be left blank.
- Ideally, all that should be present in the Message body is the command and its syntax. You can send more than one command at once providing each command begins on a new line.
If a signature, or anything else, is contained in the message body after the command(s) it is vital that it is preceeded by a '--', otherwise LISTSERV will try to interpret it as part of the command
There are various subscriber commands and List Owner commands you can use.
