Admin portal page for Mailman

Admin Portal Page

The Admin Portal page contains links to information and webtools, which may be of use to Mailman Owners/Administrators. It requires a unique RU NetID to log in.

All Mailman Webtools require a Rutgers NetID to log in. No central authority exists to determine who owns which usernames on which systems and Mailman has no way to determine if a ‘bob@system1.rutgers.edu‘ is the same person as ‘bob@system2.rutgers.edu‘. To improve security, Mailman has adopted the Rutgers University Network Identifier, developed by the Office of Information Technology.

The administrative webtools will only display Mailman lists for which you have an administrator address in the format of either NetID@rutgers.edu or one of the approved Rutgers email addresses.

If you do not have an account on one of those systems, you may be eligible to create a netid@rutgers.edu account. You can do this by going to Rutgers University Network Identifier web page and activating your NetID.

Mailman Administrative Links

This leads to a list of links to the configuration pages for each publicly listed Mailman list hosted at email.rutgers.edu. This is the same list of Mailman mailing lists that is linked from the main Mailman page. However, the links on this page go to the configuration pages for those lists instead of the information pages about those mailing lists.

New Password Request Webtool

This tool will allow you to request a new password be sent for any Mailman list you administer. This webtool will only work correctly if you have the Owner set to a valid unique RU NetID.
After logging in, the webtool will ask you to select the Mailman list you want a new password for. After you submit your choice, the password will be sent to all owners/administrators of the list.

What lists do I own?

This webtool will take you to a list of Mailman mailing lists you administer. The list is composed of links to the configuration pages of each Mailman list you own. This webtool will only work if you have the Owner set to a valid unique RU NetID.

Who are the members of my lists?

This webtool will take you to a list of your Mailman mailing lists. The list is composed of links to lists of the subscribers to each Mailman list you own. This webtool will only work if you have the Owner set to a valid unique RU NetID.
After logging in, the webtool will ask you to select the Mailman list you want to view members of. This list can then be cut and pasted into a text editor or exported as a csv file for further use.
