Appendix O. Posting Access

Table of Contents



When a mailing list receives a message that has been submitted for posting it applies posting rules set in the List Type—specifically how the MOUY combination is set— based on which Subscriber Lists the sender is on.

Posting Actions

These are the actions that a mailing list can apply when it receives a message for posting.



The message is sent directly to the list.


The message is sent to the moderation queue to await moderator review and action. The message will only be sent to the mailing list if a moderator or administrator accepts it for posting.


The message is automatically deleted and may fail silently.

Posting Access Matrix

This table shows what action the mailing list takes when it receives a message from a sender at a certain subscriber level based on which Subscriber Lists the sender is on. 'DNE' indicates this Subscriber List does not exist for a given List Type.
