Campus Mailing Lists, Add emails or domains to Safelist, Modlist, Blocklist
List owners can define if email addresses or domains are on their list's blocklist, modlist or safelist.
There are times when a list owner needs to manage fine-tune who can post to their list. The blocklist, modlist and safelist config pages are designed to assist in this effort.
List Owner can configure these settings by:
- blocklist = posts from these email addresses or domains are automatically deleted. e.g. All email from *.ru is spam or phishing attempts.
- modlist = posts from these addresses or domains are automatically are sent to be "moderated" by a list moderator or owner. e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org has a tendency to rant.
- safelist = posts from these addresses or domains are automatically posted to the list. e.g. Prof Y's emails are always posted directly to the list, even if the list is moderated.
