I upgraded from 2.0.13 to 2.1, and I run into a problem when trying to
access the "Tend to pending moderator requests" page of a pre-existing
list. I get:
Bug in Mailman version 2.1
We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Any idea what I can do to get rid of this?
I've noticed that the following files in my web mailman space,
eg /web/data/mailman/lists/[listname], that the following files
no longer seem to be in use: config.db*, *.html.
I've noticed that mailing lists that I've created after the upgrade
only contain config.pck, config.pck.last, and request.db. Can I
assume that the config.db and html files are left over from 2.0.x
and can now be deleted?

I think it was working and quit. I upgraded to Mailman 2.1 and I can't admin
pending messages. It shows the pending messages with the choices - but if I
select to approve, reject, or discard - nothing happens after I click submit.
The same messages are still there and still pending.
What am I doing wrong?
My name is Shirley Marshall of Perfect Sites Web Design, and I have just recently partnered with Web4Designer to host my clients' sites, and they use Mailman for their mailing needs.
Now I've gotten the whole mailing list set up for my client, and it seems to be functioning great - with one major glitch! My client - and most of my other clients who will soon follow this one - does NOT want this to be a 'post-to' mailing list. It is to be used exclusively to send out newsletters and other mailings, but is not designed to be a discussion list.
I've managed to disable that option/link in most places, but, it continues to come up on every Welcome Mail as well as being automatically inserted at the top of every mailing! I cannot find anywhere to edit this part of the mails and it is causing confusion and many problems for my client.
How can I go about removing the option/link to post to the mailing list from the e-mails? I had hoped that disabling that option in your settings area would automagically remove the option/link on the mails, but it is still showing up.
I would very much appreciate it if you could explain to me how I can accomplish this in 'layman's terms' as I do not understand 'tech-speak'!
And if at all possible, it would probably be best if you could explain it to me so I can make the necessary changes, because I already know there are at least four more clients of mine coming on board at Web4Designer and they ALL will NOT want to have the option to post included on their mailing lists!
Since this is something that will need to be done on virtually all of my client's accounts, I'm sure it would be much easier for you also, if you can just show me once what needs to be done, and then I will be able to do it in the future without troubling you! ;-)
I look forward to your speedy reply and hope to resolve this issue in a timely manner.
Thank you so much for your prompt attention to this urgent matter!

Is there a way to get mailman to deliver messages to the same
domain in one smtp connection.
c(a)foo.com will all be delivered in the same smtp connection.
At the moment it is connecting, delivering to a(a)foo.com, then
disconnecting. Then connects, delivers to b(a)foo.com and disconnects and
so on and so on.

Following up on my previous Email, I (finally) found the trouble
shooting guide on the FAQ , and I have located what may be the problems
in my installation:
[/home/mailman] /usr/bin/python -S /home/mailman/cron/qrunner
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/mailman/cron/qrunner", line 89, in ?
from Mailman.Handlers import HandlerAPI

from Mailman.pythonlib.StringIO import StringIO
ImportError: No module named pythonlib.StringIO
Does this follow with the missing Python 2.2 Development RPM (Note that
LM 8.2 does not have a Python-development rpm).
Do these errors shed any additional light on the matter?

I am using Mailman 2.0.7 and when I send a message to any of my list it
will bounce back on all receipients. The email server is working
perfectly, but for some reason when Mailman sends the message the log
shows that all recpients bounce.
