PantherList Archives

PantherList is frequently used on campus as a quick and simple email list system. One of the options available during the creation of a PantherList, is whether to save and archive posts to the list.

    List Passwords:

    Upon subscription to a PantherList, each member is assigned a randomly-generated list password. This password may be retrieved or reset at any time, as long as the user remains a member of the list.List passwords are used to access advanced subscription options, as well as private list archives. Any given member may retrieve their list password using the following set of instructions.In this context, 'retrieve' refers to having the member's existing list password sent via email to the address used to subscribe to the list. Modifying a list password will be explained further in a section below

        Private list archives are archived posts from a list configured to retain archives. In this instance, Private means these archives are only accessible by members, moderators, and owners of the list.Non-members or the general public will not be able to access private list archives. If someone not currently on the list requires access to private archives, they must subscribe to the list as a member and set a password.Please note that there is currently no known way to avoid the requirement for authentication (password entry) for private list archives. This is the only mechanism PantherList has in place to ensure private archives are private
