Stop Future Emails From an Author

This option allows you to temporarily block future emails from a particular author for a 90-day period.

Each email will have an extra link at the bottom. By clicking the link, future messages from that author will be blocked.

After 90 days, messages from that author will start appearing again. You can click the link to start another 90-day block.

When this Option Appears

A message author does not see this link on messages they post.

After clicking Yes, this Confirmation Message appears:

This action is not reversible.

There are no reporting options to see who is blocking what author.

What Happens Next

You will not receive any messages from that author for the next 90 days.

If you change your mind, you can still see the messages in either the Searchable Web Archive or the Missing Message Archive. Ask your List Moderator for instructions and the password to these archives.


If I block an author, am I removed from the mailing list?

No. You remain on the mailing list.

Only emails from this one author are blocked for 90 days.

I changed my mind. How can I reverse this action?

Sorry. This action is not reversible.
