LISTSERV 17.0 Help
Help for LISTSERV Archives
The archive index page displays the message archives for a list. To view a specific message, click on its subject in the table.
This page offers you several options:
To sort the table, you can click on one of the column headers (Subject, From, or Date). For example, if you click on Date once, then the messages will be sorted in chronological order – the oldest message is listed first and the most recent message is listed last. If you click on Date again, then the messages will be reversed chronologically – the most recent message is listed first and the oldest message is listed last. The small white triangle will let you know which column header the table is sorted by and in what order (chronologically or most recent first).
The default sorting for the archives is set using the Primary Sorting option under Preferences.
If you are a server administrator or an owner of the list, a recycling bin icon is displayed next to each message. Clicking on this icon allows you to delete the message from the archives. Before the message is deleted, a confirmation page is displayed, giving you a chance to double-check your selection. Once deleted, the message is permanently erased and cannot be recovered.
