Question

When you go on holiday, you may decide that you don’t want email from the
lists that you have joined. GMS Communication Server has the ability to “Suspend” a
membership and “Resume” it again later.

Answer

Any list member can send an email message to the list with “-suspend”
appended. This will suspend their address until they return and send a
message to the “-resume” address. For example, to suspend yourself from
this mailing list, simply email:

tips-suspend@gordano.com

and when you come back from holiday, email:

tips-resume@gordano.com

Notes:

  1. You can also send these requests using the other two formats of list
    server command. That is you could email:

    tips-request@gordano.com

    with the message body:

    suspend

    or you could email:

    list@gordano.com

    with the message body:

    suspend tips

  2. You can change the name of the “suspend” and “resume” commands if you
    wish. This can be done from the List page: GLCom>Commands>Aliases.
