Common problems and questions about mailing lists

The Sussex Mailman FAQ provides useful tips for common problems.

Your mailing list's management website

To visit your mailing list's admin website, enter the list's exact name in the box below.

  • Type only the list name; do not type the '@sussex.ac.uk' part.
  • If you wish, you can also choose a specific subsection from the drop-down list on the right.
  • Then click GO.

You will be taken to the appropriate page after entering the list password. You can navigate to any subsection from your list's General Options page. Remember that the list password is NOT your personal email password!

Alternatively, visit the Mailman List Administrators' page and choose your list from there. There may be a delay before this page displays, due to the large number of mailing lists. Note also that many Sussex mailing lists are absent from this page because they are private and owners have chosen not to have them displayed.

To find the administrator for any list, enter the list name in the box above, then click GO - their address will appear near the bottom of the list's Administrator Authentication page. Having found the administrator, you should then leave the page.

Quick links for list members

To join a mailing list, or to manage your existing subscriptions and view list archives (if available), enter the appropriate mailing list name in the box below (leave out the '@sussex.ac.uk' part) and then click GO. To see a list of subscribable mailing lists, leave the box empty and just click GO.

Alternatively, visit the Mailman List Information page for information about existing mailing lists. There may be a delay before this page displays, due to the large number of mailing lists. Note also that many mailing lists are absent from this page because they are private and their owners have chosen not to have them displayed.

See the Sussex Mailman FAQ for useful tips for common problems.
