Migrating from lists.libdems.org.uk

The Lib Dem HQ's mailing list server, lists.libdems.org.uk will be switched off on 31st Dec 2016. This is an example for migrating a list to the LibIT list server.

Registering on the new server

Visit the LibIT list server and click "First login" at the top left. Enter your email address and you will receive a registration email with a link that takes you back to the server to set a password. Please set a strong password that you don't use elsewhere.

Creating a new list

Now you can click Create list on the tab bar at the top of the screen, and use the following settings:

List Name
This doesn't have to match your old mailing list but it probably helps
List Type
For a discussion list, "Private Working Group Setup".
Subject
This is what goes in the subject line of your emails - on the old server this looked like [listname] so you may want to keep this
Topic
For now, please use "Computers & Internet"
Description
A description of your list's purpose

With those filled in, click "Submit your creation request" at the bottom.
