How do I add a subscriber to the vacation list so that they can temporarily stop receiving messages?

You can either use our web interface or use a command to add a subscriber's email address to the vacation list.

Using the Command:

To add an email address to your vacation list, use the command

ADDVACATION

subscriber@domain.com

where subscriber@domain.com is the email address of the subscriber that you want to add to the vacation list.

The ADDVACATION command removes the subscriber's email address from your distribution list, and puts it on the vacation list.  This will stop new messages going to them until either the subscriber sends in a message to YourListName-vacation@mail-list.com  or you send in a DELVACATION command.

Helpful Information: To learn how to send a command to our system, please refer to this lesson:

How to send single/multiple commands in one email

Remember that your subscribers can activate and deactivate with one quick email!  Please refer to this lesson that describes how your subscribers can do that:

How can my subscriber temporarily stop receiving messages?

To remove an email address from your vacation list, use the command:

 

DELVACATION

subscriber@domain.com

The DELVACATION command will remove the subscriber's email address from the vacation list, and move it to the distribution list.  This will cause future messages to your list to be sent to them.

To see the list of people on vacation, and not currently receiving messages posted to the list, use the command:

  SHOWVACATION

 

To use the web interface, click on "Manage Subscribers" and log into your mail-list account:

Click on "Special Handling For Subscribers", enter the subscribers' email address(es), select "Add To Vacation Mode" and select the email address where you want to receive a confirmation.

Click on "Special Handling For Subscribers", enter the subscribers' email address(es), select "Add To Vacation Mode" and select the email address where you want to receive a confirmation.

Hit "Special Handling for Subscriber(s)" button at the bottom and shortly afterwards you will receive an email back with a confirmation.
