How do I configure my mailing list to be unmoderated?

Wednesday, August 12th, 2015

When a mailing list is moderated, messages which are sent to the list must be approved by the list administrator or (optional) additional moderators before they are actually sent on to the list’s subscribers. Disabling moderation will allow anyone to send a message to your mailing list and it’s subscribers.

You can choose to moderate messages from people who are subscribed to your mailing list, and/or moderate messages from people who are not subscribed to your mailing list. You may want to choose to moderate non-subscribers, instead of disabling moderation all together.

To disable moderation for your mailing list, do the following:


  • GO to your mailing lists list admin page
  • Click on “Privacy Options…” and then click “Sender Filters”
  • If you do not want your list’s subscribers to be moderated, set “By default, should new list member postings be moderated?” to “no” – there is no need to change the “Action to take when a moderated member posts to the list” option.
  • If you do not want non-subscribers who send messages to your list to be moderated, set “Action to take for postings from non-members for which no explicit action is defined.” to “Accept”
  • Click the “Submit Your Changes” button at the bottom of the page
  • IF you chose to not moderate list subscribers above:
    • Click “Membership management” (in the main navigation area”
    • Under the “Additional Member Tasks” section, the “Set everyone’s moderation bit, including those members not currently visible” option should be set to “Off” – This will cause the current subscribers to your list to have their moderated option unset.
    • Click the “Set” button at the bottom of the page
    • Click the “Submit Your Changes” button at the bottom of the page
