One of our list owners tries to keep tabs on his list members for a
somewhat sensitive list. Everyone has to send some info when
Now he notices anyone can change his address (and/or name) without the
list owner even being informed.
Or is this an effect of still running 2.1.6?

Is there a way to disable the mailinglist after my client sends out an e-mail and then re-enable it when they want to send out another one?
Here's the problem:
After my client sends out an e-mail through their mailinglist, occasionally one or two recipients reply to it and their message goes out to everyone on the list. Maybe I need to change something in the General Options. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I'm trying to write to implement LDAPMemberships v3 using Mailman
v2.1.9, but I keep getting an error in the Mailman error log that says
"ImportError: No module named ldap".
For the record, I can import 'ldap' (aka python-ldap) from a regular
python script (from the command line).
I know Mailman uses a cgi wrapper for python, could this be part of the
Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Below is some relevant output from /var/log/mailman/error, if you need
additional info, please let me know.

I'm having a problem with only external email servers trying to send to my
list. I can send email to the listserv list from the same box, but not
outside. I keep getting the following error that I'm guessing either
sendmail or something else on the box is blocking:
Delivery to the following recipient failed permanently:
Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550 No such user.
Any ideas please?

Has anyone seen this error before? I just started receiving this error
message on my list server. This is only happening to one of my lists and
keeping users from receiving mail. All mails sent to the list is queued
in the list/digest.mbox file. I will appreciate any feedback on this issue.

I have run into an odd problem with one mailing list belonging to a client.
The client has many lists but we have not seen this behavior before. I have
also set up a test list with them and have duplicated their settings and
cannot reproduce the behavior.
Details: Mailman ver. 2.1.5. Installation unknown, probably source. OS
version is RHEL 4.0, 2.6.9-42.0.2.ELsmp. MTA is postfix.
The list is set up to make announcements, so all members are moderated
except the one making announcements. The announcer and one other list member
are set up as administrators and moderators.
First time the announcer tried to post to the list, her post needed
approval. The issue was looked at and it became clear that at that time she
was not a list member, even though she was an administrator and a moderator.
She was added to the list membership and set to not be moderated. The issue
was thought resolved.
Recently she made another announcement post to the list and it was again
held for approval. We have looked through the settings in the admin panel
and can find no reason why it would be held for approval. The announcer was
still unmoderated and emergency moderation had not been enabled.
The email did have a Word doc attached. I tested with my test list and Word
doc attachments did go through, so I don't think it is blocking all Word
I also used my test list to try a settings change which I thought might
help. I set all members to be moderated and made a few posts with Approved:
[admin password] in either the subject line or the first line of the email,
but these emails were all held for approval.
I am hoping you can give me a lead where to look for fixing the moderated
I, as co-owner of a Mailman 2.1.9 list, received this message:
Subject: Uncaught bounce notification
The attached message was received as a bounce, but either the bounce
format was not recognized, or no member addresses could be extracted
from it. This mailing list has been configured to send all
unrecognized bounce messages to the list administrator(s).
I will be out of my office from Monday July 23 till Wednesday
July 25. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
Are there plans for Mailman to be able to intercept out-of-office
replies and ignore them? Or is the format of the text too variable
to be able to parse the OOO message?
The text says "or no member addresses could be extracted from it", but
the recipient's address is clearly in the "From:" line of the mail
sent back to LISTNAME-bounces. These OOO messages should not increase
the recipient's bounce score.

Is there anyway to prevent posts from being cross posted across
several lists on the same Mailman installation?
I'm running into 2 situations that i'd like to prevent
1) Cross-posting with several list names in the to or cc headers
2) Individual identical messages sent separately to different lists
Is this possible without resorting to a clue-by-four for the offending users?
Nothing popped up in a FAQ and archive search.
