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?
When authorizing a moderated list posting is it possible to change the
date/time on the outgoing authorized list message to the time it was
approved instead of the message showing the time it was first received
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

I'm using Mailman for lists management, in a collaboration
I configured Mailman so that an external archiver is used, but I
hesitate to run this archiver in background or foreground.
More concretely, in mm_cfg.py conf file, should I put:
PUBLIC_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER = 'cat > /var/run/mailman/mail_tmp;
PUBLIC_EXTERNAL_ARCHIVER = 'cat > /var/run/mailman/mail_tmp;
/usr/local/bin/external_arch %(listname)s &'
What do you recommend ? is there a difference, in terms of performance ?
Is there a risk of system overload, for one of the 2 solutions, when
dealing with too big archives ? (I have some archives exceeding 50 M)

My server suffered a catastrophic hard drive failure. I have backups
(unfortunately, two weeks old, but that's better than nothing), but when
the server was restored I was forced to upgrade to Fedora 6 (from 4) and
to Mailman 2.1.9, where it used to be 2.1.5 (I think).
I also have Plesk, through which I make new lists; once the lists are
made, their administration is exactly like a normal Mailman
installation, except for the locations, which I know. List aliases are
made by Plesk.
What's the best procedure to restore my lists? I've got a dozen, but
only three have significant traffic. Do I copy the backups to the
proper location and then make the lists with Plesk, or do I make the
lists first and then copy the data in?
I also have significant customization of the admin and info pages; can I
rescue that without too much trouble? Or do I have to transfer all the
custom modifications by hand? (It's all appearance, by the way; nothing
affects Mailman operation in any way.)
Thanks very much for any advice at all.

Im using mailman 2.1.9, and ive got close to 100 mail lists on it.
We just have had one of our IT guys leave our company, and I was wondering if there was an easy (bulk, cli) way to remove/change the email address from the "List of Administrators" (2nd text box in General Options)
Otherwise, its very a very cumbersome job to log in to each list and remove the address manually.

I'm almost sure I saw mention of something like this somewhere, but
googling isn't finding it...
Is there a patch available for Mailman that will let multiple lists
share another lists non-member (and maybe other) filters?
