Turn on Emergency Moderation for a List


When emergency moderation is turned on, all postings to the list are held for moderation instead of being posted to the list.

Use this option if many members are posting to the list and you need to stop additional postings. This may occur if the list is not configured for moderation and members begin replying to earlier posts to the list, resulting in a "spamming-like" effect. This is particularly a problem if there are many members on the list.



  1. Log into the list admin page at https://lists.uwyo.edu/mailman/admin/list-name (where list-name is the name of your list).

    Mailman List Administrator Authentication browser window
  2. On the initial (General Options) page, scroll down to Emergency moderation of all list traffic under Additional Settings and click Yes.

    Mailman General Options browser window

  3. At the bottom of the page, click Submit Your Changes.

  4. Log out from the list.
