Email List Tip of the Month: Only from Other NDSU Emails

NDSU Extension has updated some internal email lists recently:

To avoid spam and keep them for internal use, these and other listservs managed by the Extension director’s office are set so that only others using their address can send messages to them.

If you're a listserv owner, follow these instructions from Lori Lymburner on how to do that:

  1. Log in to Listserv.
  2. Go to List Management > List Configuration > List Configuration Wizard.
  3. Select your list from the drop down.
  4. Click on the gold/orange Access Control tab.
  5. In the middle of the options under that tab, change the Send= option to Private.
  6. Directly under that is a box for Special. Enter * and * in that box.
  7. Click the save button in the bottom right side of the screen.
  8. Repeat steps 3-7 for each list that you own.
  9. Log out of Listserv.

Also, if you create or already own email lists, be sure to have at least one other person as an owner for backup.
