Pipermail cannot recognize Date: field like
Date: Wed,3 Apr 2002 14:58:26 +0800
correctly, though it understands
Date: Wed, 3 Apr 2002 14:58:26 +0800
perfectly. Remember that RFC2822 says a space(FWS) at the head of
"date" is optional, not mandatory:
> date-time = [ day-of-week "," ] date FWS time [CFWS]
> date = day month year
> day = ([FWS] 1*2DIGIT) / obs-day
You can notice the symptom of this bug when you browse date.html in
the pipermail archive and find some messages posted on 3rd Apr are
at the tail of the date-sorted list of April.
Precisely speaking, the problem is inherited from
$prefix/Mailman/pythonlib/rfc822.py . I've checked on Mailman 2.0.8.

A mailing list of mine works except for archiving.
Whenever a message is processed, the following error shows up in Mailman's

I am using 2.1a3 on Redhat.
As far as I can tell, the permissions under
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private are correct. Root and mailman have r/w
access to everything.
When I manually run "./arch sys
/usr/local/mailman/archives/private/sys.mbox/sys.mbox" as either root or
mailman, the archives are correctly generated.
I noticed that most of the answers in the Mailman FAQ wizard  assume
that you have site admin access. Many of us are only list managers.
Solutions to problems that work for site admins may not work for list
Is there a preferred way to modify the FAQ Wizard for answers to list
manager questions? Specifically for list managers without site admin
Mike Noyes <mhnoyes(a)users.sourceforge.net>
my problem is such:
i want to set up a list with several sub-lists,
if a mail is sent to "mylist" with a header like
[dev] or [mylist-dev] it should be resent via
the same for the announcement-list
additionally i would like following "mylist-announce" behaviour:
if a mail is sent to this list, it would be distributed via both
"mylist" and "mylist-announce", but only once to members who are
subscribed to both lists (i think this has been discussed on this list
before with the conclusio, that someone's patch didn't make it into
mailman-2.1 but i have lost those mails...)
is this possible ?
i am currently using mailman-2.0.9-1 on a debian/woody system.

We've been in Lyris Hell for a number of months and are looking to move to
another product. Been looking over Mailman and it looks really good.
A couple of questions:
Which version of Python do you recommend running. We have 1.5.2 installed
should we use a more recent version?
We have a total of 290K members, will Mailman support this?
Which MTA do you recommend, We use Qmail on our other server but would be
open to using something else for Mailman?
Finally, what's the speed of send out of Mailman v. a Lyris?
Thanks in Advance,

This list seems to be more of a technical list for people setting-up and
maintaining Mailman. Is there some list where non-tech people like me
could share simple ideas on how to get the most of Mailman's features?

A number of our lists run on Mailman, a fantastic MLM software.

Given that you do not have access to the command line tools or the Mailman
source, I think the best you can do is subscribe the users via the mail
interface, specifying the desired (constant) password.
I would use (Mac) Eudora "stationery" for that (where the stationery fills
in everything but the address being subscribed)...I don't know how to do it
in Outlook (which you used to send your message to the list).
Actually, I wouldn't use Eudora for the task, but a suitable web page which
can forge the appropriate mail message. Forging what is needed in Eudora
would involve changing a "personality" for each outgoing message.
One of our list owners does exactly that for a couple of lists, so that
unsubscribing can also be done via her forms without password.

Apologies in advance if this has been asked and answered here, haven't
I have a list that requires posts come from registered subscribers. Our
mail admins have recently instituted a web mail system that uses a different
domain name for the sender. All us humans know it's the same place, but
mailman sees them as distinctly different. Is there a way to make mailman
see u.arizona.edu and email.arizona.edu as the same?
