The Web interface is the recommended way to administer W3C-hosted mailing lists.
There are several requirements to use the Web interface:
If your mailing list is closed and a non-subscriber sends a message , you, as the maintainer, will get back a message with the following subject header:
Subject: [Moderator Action] original subject
If this is a valid message for your list, you should forward it to the list using the "bounce" or "resend" command of your email client. Smartlist will remove the [Moderator Action] prefix and the message will appear to come from the original sender (and not from you). Some custom X-headers will be set to indicate you forwarded the mail.
Your contribution is needed here if you had to do something special with your mail client program to bounce a message.
W3C lists can also be administered using an e-mail command interface, but the Web interface documented above is much easier to use. The email command interface is generally not enabled for W3C lists; contact sysreq if you need it enabled.
