You can use Telegraph to subscribe or unsubscribe any email address to a Majordomo mailing list that you administer. This can be done with a dedicated form, or by adding the <directive action="subscribe"> tag to an existing Telegraph configuration file.

Subscribe an Email Address (Open Mailing List)

  1. Add this line of code to your Telegraph configuration file:
    <directive action=”subscribe" list="your-list-name" address="[email]" value="subscribe" />
  2. Replace your-list-name with the name of your Majordomo mailing list.
  3. Make sure that [email] corresponds to the form field collecting the email address.

This will automatically subscribe the form-provided email address to your mailing list and send a subscription notification to that email address. To subscribe an email address without sending a notification, use the instructions for Moderated Lists (below).

Subscribe an Email Address (Moderated List)

  2. Replace your-list-name with the name of your Majordomo mailing list.
  3. Replace your-list-password with the administrative password for your Majordomo mailing list.

  3. Replace your-list-password with the administrative password for your Majordomo mailing list.
  4. Make sure that [email] corresponds to the form field collecting the email address.

This will automatically subscribe the form-provided email address to your mailing list and send a confirmation message to the list owner(s). A subscription notification will not be sent to the email address being subscribed.
