Title: How can I quickly stop messages from getting sent out? Question: My list is being abused and/or there is a mailing loop, how can I quickly shut my list down for the time being, to prevent any further emails from getting sent? Answer: Log into the administrative pages for your list at: http://lists.nmsu.edu/mailman/admin/yourlistname where "listname" is the name of your list. If you are not already there, go to "General Options". Now scroll down to the bottom of the page, and look for the section titled "Additional settings". The first option under this section should be "emergency". Set this to "Yes" to start emergency moderation. When this option is set, all mail sent to the list will be held for moderation. When the problem has been resolved, you can allow your list operation to go back to normal by going back and changing this option back to "No".
