The Lyris@ Server Address
To send a command to Lyris List Manager, you can issue the commands in an email message to the lyris@ address on your server. Lyris List Manager will understand commands entered on the
subject line and in the body of the message. Multiple commands can be issued each on separate line.
To determine the Lyris List Manager address for your Site, take the host name you created for that Site, and prepend "lyris@" to it. For example, if your Site's host name is
minerva.acme.com, your Server address is email@example.com.
With Lyris List Manager, you have the option of several different kinds of command syntaxes. Wherever possible, it was made to be compatible with the command syntaxes of other list manager programs,
so that users can use the command they are familiar with, and are not required to learn something new.
Lyris List Manager will accept mail at the following addresses and understand the mail as list manager commands:
lyris@hostname The last format, listname-request@hostname deserves special attention.
In addition, you can define additional lyris@ addresses by using the Incoming Mail Rewrite feature to rewrite an address to be lyris@. For instance, you can specify that "mailing-lists@" be
rewritten as "lyris@", and this would allow people to send Lyris List Manager commands to "firstname.lastname@example.org".
