I want all mails sent to the list to come from the list's email address...
But, in this case, if the user forgets to sign their name at the
bottom of their mail body, effectively the mail to the list is
Is there a way to add the user name (or email address) to the top of
each mail so that the mails have the name of the sender, while the
mail itself comes from the list address?
I have looked high and low for an answer, but noone seems to have the solution.
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?
I've got another problem with Qmail/Plesk/Mailman (same customer,
rebuilt server). Plesk is 7.5.4 reloaded.
Mail delivered fails with "need GID 110 got 101" error. I set up the
brute-force wrapper to deliver with GID 110, and set the permissions
correctly for it to work. Now, I'm getting the following (broken up
into multiple lines for courtesy):
qmail: 1157518628.995172 delivery 726: success:
I'm about ready to pull my hair out. I even added the popuser user to
the mailman group in /etc/passwd.
So, that being said, are there any ideas out there? I have been
messing with this for a week, and have not come up with anything else

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 have a (bit aged) Redhat 9 box (Pentium II/512Mb RAM) running Mailman
2.1.6 with Postfix. Its only has to run a single moderated mailing list
sending out one email every day to around 20,000 subscribers.
Sending out the emails is not problem - it works great. The major
problem is logging in to approve the email. It (Apache/2.0.40) is so
slow that it usually times out with a 500 error after you try and
Is there a way of speeding up the web interface?
Can I approve postings from the command line?
There is a large archive as they have been running this for around 3
years. Will it speed up if we trash part of the archive. If so how can I
trash archived data that is (say) over a year old?
There was a thread on this problem, but it was not really resolved, and
that user had 450,000 subscribers.
Any help appreciated.
I have similar problem as was discussed in link i just gave.

Could you guys tell me what might be the problem?
Has anyone come up with a good management for passwords. We are about to
introduce Mailman to the university and many are concerned about password
management and generating a lot of helpdesk calls. We currently are running
Listproc on a Solaris. We want to move to Mailman on a RedHat Linux box.
Any pointers would be much appreciated. I am also new to this world.
I'm implementing an umbrella list over three other lists.
When I send mail to the umbrella list, three events occur:
(a) For each of the three lists, I (as owner) receive a request for approval with the message: Message has implicit destination
(b) Duplicate receiving email addresses (on two or all three of the sublists) are not being eliminated.
(c) I do NOT receive a request for approval from the umbrella list (yes!)
I would like for the approval to be automatic and I'd like for duplicate email addresses to be eliminated. I've probably missed the obvious, but I've invested several hours in troubleshooting ...
What I've done:
(1) added the sender's email address to the privacy options / sender filter / non-member (even though the sender is a member and the sender's email moderate check-box is not checked).
(2) done (1) above for each sublist and the umbrella list, although in the umbrella list, the sender is not a member.
(3) added the <umbrellalistname>@listdomain.org as a sender not needing approval as in (1) above, but I didn't think I should have to do this, since it's not the original sender.
I've presumed that email addresses are not case sensitive, and routinely enter all addresses in lower case.
Solutions or next troubleshooting step suggestions are welcomed.
(newbie to mailman, oldie to information technology, and embarrassed that I can't figure this out on my own)
I am working with my ISP to get Mailman installed on a private domain. I
believe we have followed all of the Mailman setup instructions correctly.
We are at the point where we mail lists with subscribers. However, when
attempted to send email to one of the lists (e.g., foo(a)bar.com), we are now
getting an error message that says:
sh: line 1: /home/bar/mailman/mail/wrapper: No such file or directory
Looking at my installation, there is no mail/main/wrapper file. Should
there be one? Should it have been created by "make install" or is this
something that needs to be created manually?
