COMMAND DESCRIPTION

QUIET ADD listname userid@node real-name

ADD listname userid@node real-name

QUIET ADD listname DD=USERS IMPORT PW=list_password
//USERS DD *
userid@node real-name
userid@node real-name
/*

Notes:

Replace list_password with the password for the list.

Between the '//USERS DD *' and the '/*' lines, list the e-mail addresses and names to be added.

Use a separate line for each person.

Example:

QUIET ADD DOG-L DD=USERS IMPORT PW=bowwow
//USERS DD *
joe@aol.com Joe Smith
jane@hotmail.com Jane Doe
/*

Add a large number of members to a list at once.

Using QUIET in front of ADD prevents a "you have been added" notification from being sent to the user and to the listowner.

Example:

quiet add mylist-l mtiger@lsu.edu Mike Tiger

QUIET DELete listname userid@node

Remove someone from a list.

DELete list-name userid@node

Using QUIET in front of DELETE to prevent a "you have been deleted" notification from being sent to the user and to the listowner.

Example:

quiet del mylist-l mtiger@lsu.edu

QUIET DEL listname *@*

BE VERY CAREFUL WITH THIS COMMAND!  IT DELETES EVERYONE FROM THE LISTSERV.

Example:

quiet del mylist-l *@*

Remove everyone from a list.

Note:  The Upper-Case Letters in the command indicate the accepted abbreviation.
