Kavi Mailing List Manager Help

Chapter 53. Edit a Dynamic Members Mailing List


Use the Edit a Dynamic Members Mailing List tool to edit the criteria used to populate your organization's dynamic mailing lists. Dynamic mailing lists are query-based mailing lists where the Subscriber Lists (i.e. Regular Subscribers List and Digest Subscribers List) are populated according to defined subscriber selection criteria each time mail is sent to the list.

If you want to do other kinds of editing, such as changing moderators, adding users to the Deny list or editing the Policy and Usage statement, you must use other Kavi Mailing List Manager tools, as described in All About Dynamic Mailing Lists.
