I've just configured Mailman to run on a box that uses the Netscape
servers (main, news, LDAP). It's doable and workable, if anyone is
interested I can make a writeup.
Two problems (apart from the ones that have to do with the Netscape
- I encountered the URL problem pointed out by Greg and Bob. When
entering ..../mailman/admin/list, I get the password box - whatever
I do, I'm bounced back to .../mailman/admin. When inspecting the HTML,
ACTION is set to "/mailman/admin" instead of "/mailman/admin/list".
- With the mail->news gateway, my NNTP server complained about a
duplicate Sender header. Dunnow whether it should've been stripped
beforehand, but adding a "del msg['sender']" at line 121 of
GatewayManager.py seems to do the trick.
Last remark: Great stuff! I'll be replacing my Majordomo setup at home

I have recently set up Mailman on my system in lue of Petidomo, and I must
say I am most impressed. I only have a few questions:
1) Most of my subscribers are reciving more than one copy of every relayed
email...so I set the max connections to 1 in the config (I saw that solution
in the archives). Is that correct?
2) How do I get my archives working or are they not implemented yet?
3) What permissions do you all have set on your /home/mailman and the cgi
scripts? I ended up adding mail and nobody to my mailman group.
I am running RedHat Linux 5.1 with all the most recent errata updates for
gcc etc etc.
Thanks in advance, great job!

Well, I have just installed mailman for the first time and so far everything
works fine except for the archives. I have downloaded the pipermail software,
but cannot find any suitable explanation on how to install it to work with
mailman. I assume that it involves creating ScriptAlias for Apache, but how
where should the alias point? To mailman/archives/public/?
I will be grateful for a hint or two on how to configure the two pieces of
software to work in concert :)))
after installing b5, with python 1.5, and chmod'ing all the
appropriate directories according to all the messages in the archive I
am still experiencing problems. No mail is being delivered. If I
mail to any mailing list on my machine the following shows up in the
mailman logs. Any help is greatly appreciated since all my lists have
