Question

I have upgraded from GMS List Server V3 and I am unable to log on using the name of my list to administer the list.

Answer

When you create a list through the GMS List Server V4 GUI a password is specified
(written to reg as "PASSWORD=") and you can logon with the list address
giving this password. You then have permissions to configure the list.

On upgrade to GMS List Server V4 no PASSWORD var is created as this was not an option in GMS List Server V3 which will mean this option is not available.

The solution is to edit the list details through the GMS List Server V4 GUI and apply a password to the list. Once applied you will then be able to logon using the fully qualified name of the list and the Password to administer the list.
