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

This message was sent using IMP, the Internet Messaging Program.
I operate a number of mailing lists. Some of these lists are announce only
lists. The annouce only lists work by setting everyone's moderation bit to
1 apart from those that have posting permission. This is done
automatically by a script that takes its data from a remote database via a
text file that is created when requested. (and yes, I know that's a long
winded way of doing things!)
But every now and again on some lists (its only happened so far on large
lists) all the moderation bits are set to 0 allowing anyone to post. Any
ideas why this would be?
Below are the script that sets posting permissions [A] and a sample of the
text file that inputs into this script [B].
Any ideas why this would happen? As always, many thanks if you can help.
PS I don't blame you if you tell me to use a simpler solution. In fact, I
agree and I am completley redoing the project getting rid of the manual
synching and using default mailman admin interface. But in the mean time it
is still a problem that I would be really grateful if someone could help me
find a solution to.

My lists are locked down to only allow posts from members, so my members
are not getting any SPAM. However, as list owner, every one of my lists
is getting a large amount of SPAM - generally sent to the listname-owner
or to mailman-owner. My maillog entry looks like this:
Sep 23 10:39:34 hostname sendmail: l8NHdYwF017244:
/mailman owner mailman", ctladdr=<mailman-owner(a)my.domain.com> (8/0),
=00:00:00, xdelay=00:00:00, mailer=prog, pri=140071, dsn=2.0.0,
Sep 23 10:39:35 hostname sendmail: l8NHdZV9017247:
.domain.com>, size=2069, class=-60, nrcpts=1,
86.mailman(a)my.domain.com>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=Daemon0,
Does anyone know how to best stop these? Are these SPAM's coming from
the outside direct to the e-mail address, or are they somehow going
through mailman? If the latter, can I stop it in mailman somehow? If the
former, does somebody have a recommended way to stop them? I have a SPAM
filter running on my end system, but I am just tired of the constant
flow of SPAM.
Thanks for any help.

Hello all! I would like to run mailman 2.1.9 at my site. I have a web
server with apache2 and a mailserver with zimbra; these are 2 different
servers. Where do i install mailman? On the apache2 server or on the
mailserver, or does it matter which one? Please excuse my novice-ness.
We have a newsletter type list that has been running for almost two years
now. The list currently has 1,100 members who receive one email each
morning. The Bounce Configuration page for this list is configured as
follows: Yes, 5.0, 30, 2, 7, Yes, Yes, Yes which I believe may be the
defaults. The system is running under RedHat V4.
I ran the following command: grep 'score' /var/log/mailman/bounce and
received a list of 28 users that have records containing "(score 5.0 >=
5.0)". I can see one duplicate email address in this list of 28 - most of
the records appear to be unique email addresses. The dates on the records
cover a period of one week.
It appears there are a number of candidates that could have their
subscriptions Disabled and/or Removed from the list. I have been the list
admin for two years now and I have never received an email saying a list
member has been Disabled or Removed. This seems odd based on what I am
seeing in the logs. I do receive emails for bounce messages that fail
Is it possible to see in a log (or through the online interface) when a user
is placed in Disabled status? I would like to be able to grep this log and
see if anyone is being Disabled or Removed - this may confirm if there is
actually a problem or not. Let's say looking at the logs reveals that list
members are not ever being Disabled or Removed - what is the next step to
debugging this problem?
Thank you in advance for your help! Greg Sims
What are my options when I need to edit some text within
