Response

1. lists of the organisation that email accounts that send FOI requests belong to.

The casework tracker system that the Scottish Government uses to log all FOI requests has a section for recording what, if any, organisation the email account sending an FOI request belongs to.

There are no separate lists. This section of the casework tracker- is titled Requester Organisation.

3. Correspondence on the membership of these lists since 1 January 2018 if they exist;

4. if ministers have suggested edits to these lists in the same timeframe (1 January 2018 to date of request).

There are no membership lists. The Scottish Government does not have f the information you have asked for because there has been no correspondence regarding the membership of these lists and ministers have not made any suggested edits to these lists.
This is a formal notice under section 17(1) of FOISA that the Scottish Government does not have the information you have requested.

5. how the Scottish Government works out what organisation an account belongs to.
This section of the casework tracker is updated using information provided by the requester at the time of their request, such as their email or postal address, or based on previous requests fromrepeat requesters.
