I can't get to the pending request page for a mailing list.
(My web clients just say "waiting for response" and finally give up.)
I think it is because there are too many pending requests after some
problems. (config.db is almost 10MB.)
How can I do this some other way?
My name is Shannon McCormick and I am a member of the technology team @
4charity http://www.4charity.com. We are an Application Service Provider
(ASP) for the Non-Profit industry. We are currently developing a Email List
Management product that we will make available to our customers. We are
interested in using Mailman as the underlying email engine for sending
messages and handling bounces. We are building the entire user interface
and managing/storing the list, message and user information ourselves. We
will be charging our customers by some metric to use our product. What
license is Mailman covered by (I believe it is the GNU GPL)? Does Mailman's
license allow it to be used in this capacity?
Thank you, Shannon

I would like to put Mailman to use in an organization I'm
doing some work for *however* there is too much resistance
to the idea of requiring users to provide a password to
Does Mailman have an option to not require a password

Are there any unofficial patches to change the code in

Does anyone have any experience using Mailman with CommunigatePro from
Stalker Software? CGPro also has some list functionality, but I am already

I get this error almost every minute. If check the permissions I see
that config.db of all lists are owned by nobody ( web user ). Is it not
okey? Should I chown?

I just set up Mailman 2.0.3 on my web server -- very nice stuff!
I've set everything up as per the INSTALL file, but when I go to my
/mailman/listinfo.cgi page without specifying a list, the list owner e-mail
address is not @DEFAULT_HOST_NAME, but at the machine's DNS host name...
I'm on a virtual host, so this means a lot to me. None of the other pages
are affected, even /mailman/listinfo.cgi/test, which is the list info page
for the test list I set up.
Any ideas? Did I just discover a stupid bug? Do I need to change

Yes. This is an option under privacy options.
You can also configure a list so that only a named set of addresses
can post to the list, regardless of their subscription status.

This is currently not possible under Mailman alone. It quite easy
to do however via, say, a combo of procmail and mailman.

Yes, within the minor limitations of regular expressions.
