Managing your SIdeline subscription

I want to ...

Note: When logging into the mailing list administration section, the username will be your email address, and the password generated for you by the Mailman list server. This password is not the same as your SIdeline archives password.

Cannot remember your mailing list password?


Stop receiving messages for a short time

If you wish to stop receiving SIdeline messages for a period of time (for example, if you are going away on vacation), you do not need to unsubscribe from SIdeline; rather, you should disable your mail delivery.

To do this, you must log in via http://list.indexers.org.uk/mailman/options/sideline, using your email address as the username and the separate Mailman-issued password (sent out monthly in a reminder email).

In the section entitled "Your SIdeline Subscription Options" change the "Mail Delivery" option from "Enabled" to "Disabled".

Note that if you disable mail delivery, you will need to re-enable it to start receiving messages again.

Mail delivery options

Don't forget to click on the "Submit my changes" button at the bottom of the page when you have finished selecting all your subscription options, otherwise you will lose all changes!

Receive a daily digest version of SIdeline messages

Some people prefer to receive SIdeline messages in digest form (all the messages from that day bundled up into one long email) instead of receiving each individual message. To do this, you must log in via http://list.indexers.org.uk/mailman/options/sideline, using your email address as the username and the separate Mailman-issued password (sent out monthly in a reminder email).

In the "Set Digest Mode" section, set the option to "On"; to receive individual messages, ensure the setting is "Off":

You also need to set the options in the "Get MIME or Plain Text Digests?" section to "Plain text":

Digest format options

Don't forget to click on the "Submit my changes" button at the bottom of the page when you have finished selecting all your subscription options, otherwise you will lose all changes!

Change my email address

You can change your email address used for the mailing list. To do this, you must log in via http://list.indexers.org.uk/mailman/options/sideline, using your email address as the username and the separate Mailman-issued password (sent out monthly in a reminder email).

In the section entitled "Changing your SIdeline membership information" enter your new address in the appropriate fields and clicking on the "Change My Name and Address" button:

Changing your email address section

You can also set or change your real name; this simply personalises the Website.

The "Change globally" checkbox allows you to change your information across all the Society lists run through Gradwell. This will not be of interest or use to the majority of SIdeline subscribers, though.

Password management

You can change the randomly-assigned Sideline mailing list password, or be reminded of it, by clicking on the appropriate button in the "Your SIdeline password" section. You will need to log in first via http://list.indexers.org.uk/mailman/options/sideline, using your email address as the username and the separate Mailman-issued password (sent out monthly in a reminder email):

Password management section

If you are subscribed to other mailing lists run through Gradwell, you can set the same password globally by checking the "Change globally" box.

Unsubscribe from the list

Should you really wish to unsubscribe from the SIdeline mailing list, log in via http://list.indexers.org.uk/mailman/options/sideline, using your email address as the username and the separate Mailman-issued password (sent out monthly in a reminder email).

Click on the Unsubscribe button in the "Unsubscribing from SIdeline" section:
