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

I have the task of setting up a replacement for an existing
Mailman/Postfix server. I am new to Mailman and I am looking for some
guidance in this transition. Mailman is currently being used solely as
a diffusion of information. That is, it does not accept contributions
from list members (read-only).
Firstly, should I attempt to migrate data/files over to the new system
or should I start fresh?
The new system will be running OpenBSD 4.0.
Other comments welcome.
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'm having a problem with building mailman 2.1.9 on Solaris 10. No problems with configure or make, but make install breaks.
Here is an extract:
/opt/csw/lib/python2.3/distutils/dist.py:213: UserWarning: 'licence' distribution option is deprecated; use 'license'
unable to execute cc: No such file or directory
error: command 'cc' failed with exit status 1
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `install-packages'
Current working directory /usr/local/src/mailman-2.1.9/misc
*** Error code 1
The following command caused the error:
for d in bin cron misc Mailman scripts src templates messages tests; \
(cd $d; make DESTDIR= install); \
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `doinstall'
Does anyone see something here?
Hello list, I have a rather simple issue with my mailman list server, when
someone forwards an email from the list to someone else, the original
senders email address is removed.
Instead it says the usual:
[mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] On Behalf Of John Doe
Sent: Friday, March 30, 2007 9:19 AM
Subject: [Listname] Subject.
I read up on the general options for an individual list and saw two
functions that might be the answer but they don't seem to have any effect on
what I am trying to accomplish.
Searching the faq briefly didn't yield much either.
How do I change this behavior to include the email address of the original
sender, instead of just their name?
Thank you in advance for the help!

This won't work for at least two reasons

This is one of the reasons. Mailman replaces things like < and > with
< and > to avoid cross site scripting (XSS) attacks.
The main reason this won't work is that the footer appears in a
text/plain message part, so tags will not be interpreted as HTML
anyway, but you can just put something like
To unsubscribe visit
in msg_footer and many MUAs will make it a clickable link anyway. Note
that you also need the unsubconfirm=1 which corresponds to the "Yes, I
really want to unsubscribe" checkbox.

Hi, I'm new to Mailman and I have problem with genaliases. I'm using Mailman 2.1.5 on RHEL 4 with Postfix.
I read the /usr/share/doc/mailman-18.104.22.168/README.POSTFIX and tried to setup postfix like mentioned in 'VIRTUAL DOMAINS' section.
virtual_alias_maps = pgsql:/etc/postfix/pgsql/alias_domains_maps.cf \
recipient_delimiter = -
VERP_FORMAT = '%(bounces)s+%(mailbox)s=%(host)s'
VERP_REGEXP = r'^(?P<bounces>[^+]+?)\-(?P<mailbox>[^=]+)=(?P<host>[^@]+)@.*$'
VERP_PROBE_REGEXP = r'^(?P<bounces>[^+]+?)\-(?P<token>[^@]+)@.*$'
VERP_CONFIRM_FORMAT = '%(addr)s+%(cookie)s'
VERP_CONFIRM_REGEXP = r'^(?P<addr>[^+]+?)\-(?P<cookie>[^@]+)@.*$'
MTA = 'Postfix'
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['our_domain.com']
I also tried to create a new list by command 'bin/newlist list(a)our_domain.com' and wrote what I've been asked. Then I created 'data' directory, with chmod and chown, make bin/genaliases and /etc/init.d/mailman restart. After typing genaliases command I expected mailman to create data/virtual-mailman and data/virtual-mailman.db files, but absolutely nothing happened.
What I'm doing wrong? I found nothing about it in README* documents nor in FAQ.
Thank you for help, Tomas
