Enable newsgroups

ListManager is able to act as a secure, private Newsgroup server, so that the mailing lists being run on your ListManager are also available via a news browser program, such as Netscape News, Agent, "rn", or Internet Explorer.


If you do not want this capability, you can disable it server-wide with this option, or it can be disabled on a list by list basis. For more information about newsgroup support in ListManager, see Usenet Newsgroups.


Show all lists

By default, this setting is set to "No, When Message Reading, Only Show the Lists for the Current Site." When members go to view all lists in the discussion forum interface, they see only the lists for the site they are logged into. To have all lists displayed, change this setting to "Yes, When Message Reading, Show All Lists for All Sites."


Enable legends in reports

This is a server-wide option for turning on the legends feature in reports. The default is set to "Yes". When legends are enabled, reports will display a legend describing the meaning of each color (line, bar, etc.) and a description. For instance, in the Send success & failure report, the legend shows one color for "failed mailing attempts" and another for "successful mails sent", with a brief description of what these mean. If legends are not enabled, the chart will say "unknown" or "undefined" in place of the description.

Note that for each chart, a legend can be viewed even if this server-wide setting is set to "No" by clicking the "?" beneath each chart.


Image Library

Images are made available from the Image Library either directly on the server or by storing a path to the file location. The default setting enables both methods to be available. This feature can be changed to allow only Remote images, or only directly Uploaded images to be available from the Image Library.


In order to enable this feature, an administrator needs to configure Lyris LM to allow images to be stored in the database by modifying the enable_image_hosting parameter in tclhttpd.rc to “1”.


Enable content internationalization

If you are going to be using any international characters when creating content, a server administrator must enable this feature here in order for the Internationalization feature to appear and function properly.


If content internationalization is not enabled, the Internationalization tabs will not appear in the Contents and Mailings sections. See Content: New Content: Internationalization and Mailings: New Mailing: Internationalization for more information.


If this feature is not enabled, the default is the ISO-8859-1 character set and quoted-printable encoding.


Make long home page queries optional

Some of the reports available on the home page may take a long time to be displayed. When set to "yes", this setting prevents these reports from being generated automatically when visiting the home page, which allows the home page to be displayed much more quickly. The individual reports may be generated if desired by clicking the appropriate buttons.


Default language

Select the default language for the server from the drop-down menu (if nothing is set, English is the default). This sets the language that the ListManager interface will be in. To have other languages available for the web interface, you must run the command line function dbimporttranslations to import the translations. By default, they are not installed when installing or upgrading ListManager because they take a long time to import and can affect the performance of the web interface.


EmailAdvisor Image URL

(Rebrandable license only) Replaces the image used for the EmailAdvisor signup screen. By default, this setting is blank, and ListManager displays a promotional logo. Enter the full path of the image to be displayed.


EmailAdvisor Email

(Rebrandable license only) Specifies the email address users should use to find out more about the EmailAdvisor service. By default, this setting is blank; requests for information about this service are routed to the Lyris web site.


EmailAdvisor Telephone

(Rebrandable license only) Specifies the phone number users should call to find out more about the EmailAdvisor service. By default, this setting is blank; requests for information about this service are routed to the Lyris web site.


Use Real Recipient Address When Merging Test Messages

When sending a test mailing, ListManager will by default merge all information into the test message for a random list member, including the To: header if the %%nameemail%% mail merge tag is used.


In some cases, these messages are filtered as spam because the (SMTP envelope) RCPT TO: and (Header) To: are not the same.


By default, this setting is set to "no," meaning the To: field will display the email address of the list member being sampled, not the email address specified to receive the test message (as specified in the "Send test to" field in the Test Mailing form).


To change the To: header to be that of the user receiving the test message, not the member being sampled, this setting should be changed to "yes." The following fields will then show the email address of the person getting a copy of the test message, not the sampled list member:
