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.
When I send email to listname-leave(a)domain.com the names don't unsubscribe from the lists.
Why would that be?
Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo! Mail beta.
I would like my mailing list to have the following configuration: the
messages from most of subscribers are rejected, and there are a few
subscribers whose messages are hold for moderation. Is there any way to do
so without changing the source code? Or maybe there are already some
If I check the moderation checkbox for all subscribers, then I can set only
one moderation action, but when I uncheck the box for the "priviledged"
subscribers, their messages aren't hold for moderation.
I am using Mailman 2.1.9.
My second question is: does Mailman use any email authorization or it simply
checks the From: header of messages?
I've installed mailman using Yum. I'll create a list which sends out the email that
the list has been created. When I subcribe using the email it works fine, however if I
click on the link back to the server I get a 500 Internal Server Error.
I look in my Apache logs and get the following error message:
[Wed Nov 22 19:19:56 2006] [error] [client X..118.247] attempt to invoke directory as
[Wed Nov 22 19:21:22 2006] [error] [client X..118.247] Premature end of script
[Wed Nov 22 19:22:30 2006] [error] [client X.X.118.247] Premature end of script
Next I look in my /var/log/httpd/suexec.log and I get:
[2006-11-24 10:07:27]: uid: (500/morganfundingcorp) gid: (500/500) cmd: confirm
[2006-11-24 10:07:27]: file is either setuid or setgid: (/usr/lib/mailman/cgi-
So I change from 2755 with User as root, Group as mailman to 0755 and now I get:
[2006-11-25 14:45:43]: uid: (500/morganfundingcorp) gid: (500/500) cmd: admin
[2006-11-25 14:45:43]: target uid/gid (500/500) mismatch with directory (0/41) or

[2006-11-25 14:45:49]: target uid/gid (500/500) mismatch with directory (0/41) or
Anyone have any clues? I am at a dead end.
We've recently installed Mailman 2.1.9 on our server. We have installed
and configured Mailman in a postfix environment that is using mysql (See
our server configuration at the bottom of this email). We can create a
new list, log onto the admin and user web interface. However, we are
unable to send email to a newly created list. When we try to send an
email, the send process hangs with the following message:
An error occurred while sending mail. The mail server responded:
<testlist(a)ourserver.com>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown
in the local recipient table. Please verify that your email address
is correct in your Mail preference and try again.
We've followed the instructions in the pages below and still been unable
to fix the problem:
We've noticed that the .../data/virtual-mailman.db does not populate.
Running genaliases populates the .../data/aliases and
...../data/aliases.db. Adding a new list updates the aliases.db, but in
either case, the virtual-mailman and virtual-mailman.db files have no data.
1) Is our inability to send email to the lists due to the fact that the
virtual db files aren't being populated?
2) If so, how do we fix this for our already created lists?
3) If so, how do we fix things so that lists we create from now on don't
have this problem?
Linux version 2.6.15-gentoo-r1
Postfix mail_version = 2.2.5
-2 virtual domains
-multiple aliases for each virtual domain
SquirrelMail version 1.4.5
Mailman version: 2.1.9 (not fully functional at this point)
First let me say that I realize that filtering is supposedly better done
at the MTA level (and we are running spam assassin), but I don't have
access to that level; I am only a moderator for several lists, and I
would like to be able to do simple filtering without bothering the sys
With discard_these_nonmembers, I use regular expressions such as:
Those seem to work fine.
But I would like to be able to filter on subject lines, and suppose this
would be done with header_filter_rules. About half of the spam that gets
through are those recent ubiquitous spams with subject lines like "Linda
wrote:" and "hi it's Linda". I tried the rules:
But they don't seem to work. I am not very familiar with regular
expressions. Can someone point out something I am doing wrong?
There is a "umbrella_list" setting in the "General Options" for my
lists but I'm not sure how I'm supposed to setup the umbrella list to
allow posting from people who are on the sub lists. Has someone written an
explanation of this procedure?
