Discussion Forum Interface

If you are subscribed to a Lyris Mailing list you can interact with that list through a web interface. You can access the discussion forum interface by going to the server’s main discussion forum URL.
Examples: http://cts.dundee.net/read/?forum=listname or http://cts.dundee.net/read/

Depending on the forum you are subscribed too the forum may require that you log in to view messages. Other forums may require that you log in to post a message to the forum. If this is the case, you will be prompted to provide your email address and password. Clicking on “My Account” in the left navigation menu will take you to the login screen.
