Activating/deactivating the Mailing lists service

In order to disable the support of mailing lists the Mailing lists service can be deactivated. When the mailing list service is deactivated, all mailing lists also change their status to 'deactivated' and therefore cannot be accessed.

NOTE

When the mailing list service is deactivated, the status icon will change to [ X ], and the status icons of the mailing lists at this domain will change to .

Activation of the mailing list service enables access to active mailing lists.

NOTE

When the mailing list service is activated, the status icon will change to [On], and so will the status icons of the mailing lists at this domain that were active before deactivating the mailing list service.

To activate/deactivate the mailing list service:

  1. Click the On/Off button. The confirmation will appear querying whether you actually wish to change the status of the mailing list service.

  2. Click OK to proceed with changing the status. Clicking Cancel will leave the mailing list service status unchanged.
