There are a pair of administration test mail lists available to practice administration skills.
firstname.lastname@example.org This mail list mimics the activity you will see when you are the assigned administrator. email@example.com (alias firstname.lastname@example.org) This mail list mimics the activity you will see on the email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org mail lists while you are performing admin duties.You will see the same messages that both the administrator and the list member sees when using the ip-test-xx mail lists.
CAUTION !! if there is more than one person subscribed to the ip-test-xxxx lists at the same time, you will all receive the messages posted. You must ignor the messages for the other administrator. To this end, name your test subject mail addresses so you can easily recognize them and thus the messages which belong to you.
Subscribe to email@example.com by sending a message to:
firstname.lastname@example.org ---- containing ---- subscribe endThis is an open mail list. You will get everyone else's test messages if you do not remember to unsubscribe when you are finished by sending a message to:
email@example.com ---- containing ---- unsubscribe endor you may use the majordomo syntax
firstname.lastname@example.org --- containing --- subscribe ip-test-admin or unsubscribe ip-test-admin endYou may then send subscription requests and profiles to the email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org mail list (they are actually the same list aliased to each other).
The administrator's password for this mail list is:
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE unsubscribe any dummy accounts you put on this list.
Send test mail list subscriptions in a message to:
email@example.com ---- containing ---- subscribe ip-test firstname.lastname@example.org endSend test profiles to the list in a message to:
To: email@example.com Subject: Test-Member Name < firstname.lastname@example.org > ---- containing ---- Hi, this is some test text in a test member profile that I have decided to let run off the page so I can practice the wrap.
Remember to first unsubscribe all of your test accounts from ip-test. You must be a member of ip-test-admin to do this. Second, unsubscribe yourself from ip-test-admin. Remain on the ip-test-admin list until you have confirmed that your dummy accounts on email@example.com have been removed. You can check the dummy mail list accounts by issuing the message to:
firstname.lastname@example.org ---- containing ---- who endUnsubscribe dummy accounts by issuing the message to:
email@example.com ---- containing ---- approve ip-test.PASSWORD unsubscribe firstname.lastname@example.org endor same effect, different syntax
email@example.com --- containing --- approve ip-test.PASSWORD unsubscribe ip-test firstname.lastname@example.org
