How do I use this technology?

There are two methods to unsubscribe yourself from a Mailman mailing list. You only need to use one of these methods. After following one of the options below, you will be sent a confirmation message to the email address provided and must follow the instructions given in the email to complete the unsubscription process. This is to stop people from unsubscribing you without your permission. Additionally, depending on the nature of the list, a moderator may need to approve your unsubscription.

Unsubscribe via Web Interface

  1. Open a web browser and go to the list information page for the list you want to leave. It will be something like the following:


    Replace <listname> with the name of the list you'd like to unsubscribe from.
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page looking for the section labeled <Listname> Subscribers.
  3. In the text field next to the Unsubscribe or edit options enter the email address that you want to unsubscribe from the list.
