If a user have been subscribed by a list administrator, how does he/she
obtain a password?
I am the administrator of a list and I initially mass-added the subscribers
but opted not to send out the "canned" welcome message (I wrote a welcome
message on my own). Now I am getting complaints that users can not see the
subscriber list because they don't have a password. I have not been able to
find anything about this issue in the documentation.
Thanks for your help
My mailing list is already set up to hold posts from non-members but I'm
getting very fed up of having to manually reject spam. In particular, it's
Yahoo! addresses which are the biggest sinners. Has anyone written any
kind of Mailman add-on that will allow me to:
* automatically reject (rather than hold) non-member posts from certain
* send off an automatic complaint with full headers etc to the relevant

Mailman is running on Slackware Linux using Sendmail 8.11. As near as I can
tell, sendmail's error code 250 means that everything was a success. I
don't get it.

Oh, you right.
But it's work for the admin. Why he should do this? :-)

Still no success of fast processing the qfiles dir.
WITH DEFAULT MAILMAN VALUES at Default.py file
I did do the following :
Using SMTPDirect module to 127.0.0.1 port 25 (Normal Sendmail)
Using SMTPDirect module to 127.0.0.1 port 250 (Sendmail no DNS resolving
according the FAQ)
Using SMTPDirect module to 192.168.0.1 port 25 (Another SMTP server running
on windows 2000)
Using Sendmail module
All methods are the same results. qrunner is processing just 1 message at
the time and the next message at the qfiles dir is processed about 10
So qrunner is processing the qfiles dir for about 10 messages in 1 hour.
Because there are more than 10 messages comming in .. the qfiles dir is
growing and growing.
Now you may tell me what i now can try to make qrunner faster processing.

I've been scouring the archives regarding Mailman and virtual domains, but can't get it to work. My setup: Mailman 2.0.7, postfix, Linux-Mandrake 8.1.
What I did (following Jon Carnes instructions):
Created new list
Added aliases to /etc/postfix/aliases, ran newaliases
Edited /etc/postfix/virtual to reflect:
test-request(a)myvirtual.com test-request (and so on for the other aliases)
Ran postmap /etc/postfix/virtual
Stopped and started postfix.
Went to Web admin, changed Host name this list prefers and Alias names (regexps).
When I attempt to subscribe via the web I get the subscription message which comes from test-request(a)myvirtual.com, but when I reply to confirm, I get a postfix user not found error, and it says test-request(a)myrealdomain.com is the address that can't be found.
What am I doing wrong?
I apologize for bothering you, but I have two quick questions. I recently
changed Listserver packages and now use Mailman version 2.0.8. In general,
I have found the package to be a significant improvements over other similar
Listserver packages. Given my limited experience with computer systems, the
package is relatively easy to run and flexible and I sincerely appreciate
your contribution in putting this together.
Two questions, though:
1) I have set the Listserver to moderated format so that messages go to a
queue awaiting my approval. This works well, but when I make revisions to
queued messages, those changes are ***not*** reflected on the messages
actually posted. I am sure it must be a setting issue, but I have been all
over the site and have not been able to figure out how to fix this.
2) Is there a way I can block posts from certain addresses from ever
reaching the queue?

To everybody who's contributed to the development of this package: nice work
No questions, no problems, just neat.
I'd be very willing to contribute my time in the future to documentation
(I'd love to help with coding, but it's not my area...). Let me know if I
can be of use.

Let say I have a subscriber with email address "wtlewis(a)somewhere.com" on a
member-only list, then he also have an email alias
"lewis.lau(a)somewhere.com" refer to the same email account. Is that any way
to tell the mailman these two email addresses are actually the same person,
so that this member can post message onto the list no matter the message is
from "wtlewi(a)somewhere.com" or from "lewis.lau(a)somewhere.com"?
I've tried to add the email alias onto the list as well, but this cause a
problem that the subscriber will receive duplicate message.
