[Mailman-Users] True anonymous list?

Mon May 10 16:52:45 CEST 2004
Actually, after reading the Python source for Cleanse.py I don't understand
why the system doesn't do what I want by default when the list is "flagged"
as an anonymous list. It is not really clear from the web management
interface what flags the list as anonymous, but I thought it was the
'yes/no' radio button associated with "Hide the sender of a message,
replacing it with the list address (Removes From, Sender and Reply-To
fields) (Details)" the last entry on the privacy screen. I have this set to
yes and it does not strip the reply-to or received from header???? Thanks
very much for your replies.

Actually it is simpler than that. Just put that in the Handler Cleanse,
like so: (at the bottom)
# We delete all these extra Headers because I don't want them
Then put the subject back in:
msg ['Subject'] = 'Whatever You Want'
The only drawback is that now all of the subjects will be the same.
