Hi there,

been on the list for a long, long time, indeed since the time that I
was helping out a group of what might be considered more traditional
users of SAC, here at VUW.

I was looking to move the email from my current account to an
account I operate within GMail, specifically for mailing-list
interaction (clearly identifiable as me, at my institution, by
the way) but all my attempts to find a page at which to subscribe
the new email address within the IRIS "Message Centre", so as to
ensure I then continue to recieve content before unsubscribing the
current address, have so far failed.

What/Where is the "Message Centre" equivalent of say Mailman's
simple subscription page, ie, where one simply enters one's email
address so as to initiate an automated process through to the
subscription?

Yours, expecting to remain, albeit at a different email address,

  • Hi Kevin,

    I redirected your question to the Message Center topic, since it is more relevant to that.

    The logins in the new system are centralized, so what you're looking to do here is an account-level change.

    The system supports multiple email addresses, so if you have existing subscriptions you want to keep that's the easiest path to take.

    * Go to http://ds.iris.edu/account/profile/ (you will need to log in first)
    ** If you've never logged into the website before, the "Forgot Password?" link will let you log in by confirming your email address. (You don't technically have to set a password.)
    * Under the "E-mail Addresses" tab you can enter additional email addresses.
    * For each address you enter, you will receive an email with a clickable link, this is how the system verifies that you own the email address.
    * Once verified, you can set the new address as your "primary" address. All subsequent email will be sent to that address.

    This changes the email address associated with your existing account (basically, any subscriptions you have). If you want to set up an entirely separate account instead, start at http://ds.iris.edu/account/signup/ and enter your email address to receive a verification link by email. Clicking on the link will set up a new account and log you into it, at which point you can add any subscriptions you'd like.

    Cheers,
    Adam
