===List Membership===
 
Once your list has been setup by Academic Computing, getting members subscribed is the next step. List Admins can choose if they want to manually subscribe members or let members self-subscribe.
 
 
Please note: ''yourlist'' is used throughout this tutorial and should be replaced with the name of your list.
 
====Member self-subscription====
 
Potential list members may use one of two methods to self-subscribe:
 
*send a blank e-mail to: join-''yourlist''@lists.evergreen.edu
 
:'''OR'''
 
*go to http://www.evergreen.edu/lists/ and click the subscribe button next to ''yourlist'' (note: this link may not be immediately available and can take up to 24 hours to be generated)
 
 
Either way they choose, they will then be sent a confirmation e-mail to verify their subscription. This subscription confirmation is an important security step to keep our lists spam-free. It is important that subscribers enter a real name: both first and last. This will prevent spammers from getting through to your list.
 
====Manually add members====
 
Faculty can add all the addresses for a program to a list by using the '''Custom Class List''' feature of Banner to generate a list of student emails.
 
*Access the '''Members''' section of the Lyris admin (see '''Administering Your List''' below)
 
* Paste the generated list into the '''Create Many Members''' window on the Admin page for yourlist (Lyris will accept combinations of names and email addresses in various formats).
 
===Using your List===
 
====To send email to the list====
 
* send the e-mail to: ''yourlist''@lists.evergreen.edu
 
*'''Reply''' replies to the sender of the message only
 
*'''Reply to All''' replies to everyone on the list.
 
 
====Read lists messages from a web browser====
 
All messages sent to the list will be in a web archive accessible at http://lists.evergreen.edu/
 
Note: to use the web archive you will have to subscribe using the web-based method at http://www.evergreen.edu/lists and must set a password for your account.
