Hi All,

I am new to managing the listservs at my university and have some questions on which I cannot locate documentation. I am sure there is some detail I am overlooking, but thanks anyway.

Do list administrators get moderator messages too? The administrator of one of my department lists is an administrator, but keeps getting prompts to approve things. Any info on this?

Hello Mark

Thanks for this further clarification.

I can live with the anomaly (have to!) but it is good to know the position.
