How to send single/multiple commands in one email

By sending a command to our system, as a list owner, you can obtain useful reports or make changes to your list.

Some commands may require you to send subscribers' email addresses while some will not. We have provided both the examples below.

To send a command that doesn't require any subscribers' email addresses, see the example below: (Detailed explanation is given below the image)

The above screenshot was taken from Thunderbird. Your email program may not look exactly like the above screenshot.

1. Compose an email and make sure that you send the email from the same email address that is registered with mail-list.com.

2. If your list name is "eNews", then this is the email address to which you will need to send your message:

eNews-moderator@mail-list.com

That means, you will need to leave the "-moderator@mail-list.com" part the way it is and just insert your list name before it.

In case you don't know what your list name or password is, please refer to the QuickStart manual that was sent to via email by us. If you are unable to locate it, please email us at mdm@mail-list.com. A copy of the QuickStart manual can also be found here (however it won't have your personal list name or password):

3. Insert your password that was provided to you by mail-list.com in the Subject.

4. Type in the relevant command name in the body of the email.

5. Insert your subscriber's email address on the next line below the command. If you are inserting multiple email addresses, then insert the second one on the next line etc.

You can send in multiple commands to our system instead of sending them one at a time. The following is an example:

You can send in multiple commands to our system instead of sending them one at a time. The following is an example:

You can insert spaces between each command, however it is not mandatory to do that. You can put both types of commands in a single email i.e. the ones that require you to provide subscribers' email addresses and the ones that don't.

After sending in the email, you will receive back two emails for each command: one of them will be the Command Receipt and the other one will display the results (Command Processed).

The above is an example of a Command Receipt email sent back when our system received multiple commands in one email.

The following is an example of a Command Processed email that displays the results for sending in a command to our system:
