Orphaning a Mailing List

If you no longer wish to administer your mailing list, you can put it up for adoption by using the form below. Orphaning a mailing list means that it will be placed on the list of "adoptable" lists and it will have no list administrator until it is adopted.

Before you orphan your list, please send a message to the list letting them know that you no longer wish to be administrator and ask if anyone would like to take over the list administration. If a list member volunteers, orphan the list and instruct them to adopt it using the list adoption request form.

If a new admin cannot be found, continue with the orphaning process and the list will be put up for adoption.

Please enter the name of the list you would like to orphan and click "Continue"
