Setting Up Your E-List

Go to http://lists.ucles.org.uk/lists/admin/<listname>

<listname> should be replaced by the name of your list - e.g. cie-delia-science or cie-delia-flfrench. Don't put the <>'s in! (Top tip - put this address in your bookmarks ).

You'll need your administrator password. Enter it and click on the 'Let me in...' button.

You'll then be presented with the main administration page (below). There are a number of categories where you need to configure things. Luckily you only need to deal with three of the categories. They are: General Options, Membership Management and Privacy Options.

The arrows => show which option you are in. Click on the other categories to go to them.
