Access Unlisted Archives

This field allows you to access the archives of confidential lists that are not listed in the archive index. Simply type the name of the list in the text box and click "Submit". Note that this field will also work for non-confidential lists.

The "Confidential" list configuration keyword determines whether the list should be hidden from the archive index or not. "Confidential= No" is the default value and indicates that the list is not confidential. "Confidential=Service" indicates that the list is to be hidden from users who are not in the list's service area (see "Service=" keyword for more details) but not from other users. "Confidential= Yes" means that the list is unconditionally confidential.


LISTSERV is L-Soft's industry-standard email list management software, originally developed by Eric Thomas in 1986. See the LISTSERV Manuals for complete documentation.
