LISTSERV 17.0 Help
Help for Subscriber's Corner
This interface allows you to see all the lists that you are subscribed to or all public lists on this server. You can also subscribe, unusubscribe or change your subscripton settings for one or more lists.
To subscribe to one or more lists:
To unsubscribe from one or more lists, simply check the boxes next to to the lists that you want to leave, select the "Unsubscribe" option and press the "Update" button.
To change your subscription settings for one or more lists:
Report Column Selection
To select the subscription setting columns for your report, click on "Customize Report" and check one or more boxes under "Report Columns", and then click the "Update" button to display the relevant information. To check all boxes, click on "Check All". To clear all the report definition selections, click on "Uncheck All".
There are a number of settings that can be reported, depending on which of the checkboxes are selected. Each column heading in the report is clickable and will sort the column in ascending or descending order. A small arrow pointing up or down will appear indicating the order.
The filter row allows you to narrow the data that is displayed in the table. For example, if you only want to see lists that you subscribed to in 2016, type 2016 in the "Subscription Date" filter box. If you only want to see lists for which you have temporarily disabled mail delivery, type No Mail in the "Mail Status" filter box.
Mail Style: Check this box to report on whether you are set to receive individual postings (Regular), Digest (Text, MIME or HTML) or Index (Text or HTML) versions of the list mail.
Mail Status: Check this box to report on whether you are set to receive postings (Mail) or not (No Mail) from the list.
Header Style: Check this box to report on the header style that you are set to receive for list postings. Possible header styles are:
Acknowledgements: Check this box to report on whether you are set to receive a short acknowledgement message (Ack), a copy of your own posting (Repro) or neither (None) when you send to the list.
Restrictions: Check this box to report on what, if any, posting restrictions are in effect for you.
Conceal: Check this box to report on whether you are listed in a "Review" of the list of subscribers. This setting is only of interest for lists where the list of subscribers is viewable by other list members or the general public. This setting is irrelevent for lists that are configured so that only the list owners can review the list of subscribers because list owners can always see the subscriber addresses regardless of the Conceal setting.
Renew: Check this box to report on whether you are set to receive renewal notices on lists that are configured to request subscription renewals.
Topics: Check this box to report on which topics subscribers are set to receive on lists configured with topics.
Subscription Date: Check this box to report the date your subscription was registered.
This case-insensitive parameter controls which lists are displayed. The default is to display all lists. For example, if you have a particular group of lists that you want to query that all contain SALES in the list name, type SALES in the box and click "Update". This will narrow the lists displayed to lists such as SALES, US-SALES, SALES2018 and so forth. Note that the filter automatically expands SALES to *SALES*. Wildcards are not otherwise supported.
Search for Subscribers
This parameter allows site administrators or list owners to narrow the selection of lists to those subscribed by a particular email address. Enter the email address, for example firstname.lastname@example.org, and click "Update". If you are a list owner but not a site administrator, you will only be shown entries for the lists that you own. You can then unsubscribe or change the subscription settings for that email address. If you would like the user to receive an email notification that their options have been changed, check the "Send Email Notification" box. Otherwise, no notification will be sent.
Show All Lists
If "Subscribed Lists" is selected (the default), only lists that you are subscribed to are displayed. If "All Lists" is selected, all lists on the server that you are subscribed to, and any public lists on the server that you are not subscribed to, are displayed.
This pulldown menu controls how to display the report. You can choose to view the data in a table or download it as a CSV file. To change the report format, simply select the desired format in the menu and click "Update". Note that the same sort order and any filters also apply to the CSV download.
Lines per Page
This parameter controls how many lists will be displayed on a single page. If you want to break the results into pages of 10 lists, for example, type 10 in the box and click "Update". The default is 50.
