Hi - I have searched FAQ and archives to find an answer. Hoping you can
I have a new list (with previously imported addresses) for announcements
only, and wish these announcements to be received immediately.
I set the defaults to allow non-digest and to not allow digest.
I wish to send out announcements in html, and so wish to make the
default for new subscribers be MIME. While I see a setting under Digest
Options (MIME_is_Default_Digest), I don't see any equivalent option
under Non-Digest Options... and new subscribers continue to come in as
In order to avoid having to manually change this option for each
existing subscriber, is there a way to force all existing subscribers to
receive MIME in Non-Digest mode?
If not, is there a way to force all NEW subscribers to be enrolled with
MIME as their default?
Also, is there a way to "lock" the MIME switch on, so that users who try
to change their option to plain text will be prevented from doing so?
Recently, my Mailman list users who use either a HotMail or MSN.COM email address have not received any messages. Mailman does not record a "bounce" from these email addresses, but they do not receive any of the list traffic. When trying to send a message to a Mailman list, the user gets the following error message:
"This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.
Delivery to the following recipients failed."
And it lists the Mailman list email address. However, Mailman does not receive a bounce message. (My server is not listed with SpamHaus.org, or any of the other blacklists, so it should not be a spam filter sort of thing).
One user requested help from MSN, and they responded with:
"You are experiencing this issue because your .Net Passport <user's email address here> Profile (which is extensively used for authentication purposes) is corrupted (not updated). In order to resolve this issue, I would suggest you to Update your .NET passport profile."
They follow that with instructions to go to their MSN .NET Passport profile and re-type all the information by hand (not by cut and paste). Then a 15-step procedure is given to delete all cookies, history and temporary internet files and re-set the disk cache (space for files) to 10MB. They believe that will solve the problem but alas, it has not for the 4 users I have with MSN or HotMail email addresses.
Anyone else run into this and resolved it? I didn't see anything in the archives. If any of you have users with MSN or HotMail addresses, be advised they probably will not be able to receive emails, but you will not get "bounce" messages. They only way they will know is if they try to post to a Mailman list.
I cannot "Set everyone's moderation bit, including those members not
currently visible" to on, in the membership management section in any
I have set
OWNERS_CAN_ENABLE_PERSONALIZATION = 1
But still have the same problem.
Also I cannot set or unset digest for all users, any thing I overlooked?
This was happening before the changes made in the next issue explained
In the last couple of days we had to reconfigure reverse mapping in DNS
for the server, and now the URLs that Mailman builds in the list admin
and info pages are pointing to the old host name, is there a way of
correcting this, without re-installing mailman from scratch?
Any pointers, clues will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your assistance.
I understand the purpose of the confirmation, I just want the ability to turn it off. It is okay if users get unsubscribed from my list because of a spooked request.

E-mail unsub requests require confirmation to prevent spoofed requests

his/her password with the e-mailed unsubscribe command, but this only
works if an unsubscribe command is mailed to the listname-request

I am using MailMain trough its web-based interface. I don't have access
to the server where its runs, because it's a third-party hosting company
which provides me the MailMan service.
I want to export the subscribers list in a format like this:
. . . . . . .
I wasn't able to find the way to perform this operation, searching
deeply into the options tree.
Is it possible to obtain this kind of list?

I'm trying to setting up mailman and having trouble with virtualdomains
I need a listing name schema of:

but I can only have "one" xyz list, since the domainname is not part of
My first workaround was:
xyz(a)a.fh-konstanz.de is a-xyz(a)fh-konstanz.de and maps with sendmails
virtusers and aliases database. Then I change the preferred hostname in
the list configuration to a.fh-konstanz.de, but the sender adress is
Is there a better way to handle lists with equal names but different

I've searched the FAQ and come up with nothing. Please be gentle if this is
a dumb question...
A client of ours has a mailman list set up called awake(a)domain.org. For some
reason, when anybody posts to this list, the return address of the list
comes across as "awake-bounces(a)domain.org [mailto:email@example.com]
On Behalf Of firstname lastname"
(User and domain specific details modified)
Anyways, is this the default behavior/ Is there any way to force it to send
out emails as awake(a)domain.org and not awake-bounces?
Thanks in advance,
i'm a beginner and i have a question. perhaps somebody of
you know the answer.
i created a new list for mailman.
now a want 2 kinds of users:
- the first group should be able to send the mail directly to mailman and
should dispose the mail to the list members.
- the second group of users can send mails too. but the mail needs a release
is this possible ?
thanks for help
I have a question:
Does "max_num_recipients = 10" in the default configuration of the list, means that when I'm posting to the list I can additionaly write only 9 e-mails along with the list address and no more? If I'm writing more than 10 e-mail addresses along with the list address it goes to list admin approval?
Is it for "To" "Cc" and "Bcc" alltogether?
In mailman 2.1.5, when tending to held posts there is a 'Preserve messages
for the site administrator' option under the 'Action to take on all these
held messages.' If Accept, Reject, or Discard is selected the message gets
removed from the Administrative requests page. Only if Defer is selected
does the message remain there. Am I missing something as to the
functionality of the 'Preserve messages for the site administrator'
