I just finished upgrading from 2.0.13 to 2.1 stable. It works
ok (great work guys!), but when I send a post to pre-created
mailing list, QMail returns me a message like this:
preline: fatal: unable to run /usr/local/mailman/mail/wrapper: file does
I have to create again the same list or there is a tool that I
don't see yet? I have correctly execute crontab -u and qrunner.

I have mailman 2.1.10 running on solaris 2.7 for the
last 6+ Months, now the problem is the Mailman program
is installed on /home which is part of the root file
system, and by default archive option was enabled for
most of the lists, now the issue is the root
filesystem has become 90%, I don't want any archives,
how to go about ? Pls help me in bringing down the
size of root file system.

>I don't know anything about Ensim, but if it's even remotely Unix-y,
Ensim is software that is used to make a server do virtual
hosting. There are both Linux and Windows versions. Mine, and many, run
with Red Hat Linux 7.x.
>you should be able to do an "altinstall" of Python 2.2.2 in /usr/local.
> make altinstall
I love this list! Never seen an altinstall mentioned, but they I'm
still crawling. Apparently this does the same thing as make install except
it does not create (or replace) a hard link of the new version to "python".
Doing some searching on this I'm seeing reference to using the
--prefix option with configure to name the directory that it will be
installed to. Is this necessary, or is it only for installing the files in
a directory other than the current one?
Thanks for any enlightenment!
After nearly two years of development, we are happy to announce the
release of GNU Mailman 2.1. Mailman is free software that enables
users to manage email mailing lists and e-newsletters. Its integrated
web interface provides easy-to-use access for list members and list
administrators. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce
processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and
Mailman 2.1 is fully internationalized, supporting 17 languages
out-of-the-box. A summary of additional new features in Mailman 2.1
is outlined below. The NEWS file in the source distribution contains
more details about all the new features.
For more information on Mailman, including downloading and
installation instructions, please visit one of the following mirror
The Mailman developers wish to thank Control.com for their sponsorship
of several Mailman 2.1 features, Zope Corporation for their support,
and the entire Mailman community for their contributions.

I am also looking at having to do this, and would love to hear from
anyone who has done it. You are correct that updating Python will trash
Ensim. My Ensim has two versions of Python (neither is high enough) and I
can point things to the other one just fine - so it is possible to have two
installations. Now I just need to figure out how to install a second
version without messing with the other ones.
I have a small problem. When users subscribe to my list they will use say "
<mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> cgray(a)foo.bar". The subscription process works...
however... unbeknownst to the user... their subscription email address is
should really be "cgray(a)mail.foo.bar <mailto:email@example.com> ".
So what happens, is cgray(a)foo.bar <mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> is a member... and
cgray(a)mail.foo.bar <mailto:email@example.com> is not allowed to post. I
did a brief search on Usenet and the faqs and couldn't come up with he
correct search combination to find my answer. How can I allow foo.bar as my
posting address and not mail.foo.bar?
Can anyone provide some insight for me?
Thanks in advance... please respond to my email address as I am not on the
Is autorespond_requests broken in 2.1x, or do I perhaps misunderstand its
purpose? I'm using 2.1b4 and would like to avoid having a request autoresponse
sent to a subscribe request, or for any other request.
What's happening is that anything send to the -subscribe, or -request, aliases
is send an autoresponse with the original message attached, in addition to the
normal response. I did a db dump and verified that autorespond_requests = 0.
I don't recall this being the case in v2.0.13. Am I missing something in 2.1x?
Is there a way to run Mailman on server with Python 1.5.2 my delicated
server use Ensim with Python 1.5.2 internally for mostly all functions
I had contact with the company there the server runs and this is there
reply on my qouestion to upgrade my server to the newest Python :
to use MailMan, it's neccessary to have Python 2.1.x or higher installed
- on your Server is the stable Python 1.5.2 (comes with Ensim)
If you really like to run MailMan - it's a little tricky, because Ensim
use Python 1.5.2 internally for mostly all functions !!!
so i'm personally a little scary to update Python :-) i had a simmilar
experience with a Perl Update on a Ensim Server :-(
the only idea i have is to do a parallel installation of Python 2.2.2 -
and point MailMan to this installation - but i'm NOT sure about this !
it's also a little dangerous and timecomsuming task (expect 2-3 hours) -
and i did't want to break your servers config !!!
If there is any way - i would suggest to use a PHP script - if there is
any outthere ... or Majordomo
We want to run email discussionsgroups on our http://veteransgroups.com
<http://veteransgroups.com/> server it's a non-profit server only for
allied war-veterans, most of our groups are, on this moment, on
Yahoogroups, but we have many problems with the sending and receiving of
the mail, sometimes we have to wait seven of eight hours to receive a
mail, and that is very tricky when there is a emotional discussion going
on, In your software we find all the topics we need,
Is there a way to solve this problem?, or do you know another program
that runs e.g on PHP or PERL with the same classifications as Mailman?

switching from majordomo to Mailman, I had to setup a bunch mailing
lists. Thanks to 2.1rc1 nearly everything wen smoothly.
However, I created a mailing list under a wrong virtual web-address.
So, the mailing list appears under the wrong virtual host section when
typing <http://.../mailman/listinfo>. Which is wrong.
Since it is an empty mailing list, I could either delete the mailing
list and set it up again -- or move it if this was possible. (I
prefer the first).
How can I delete a mailing list completely?
