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

How can I set up a new list that sends to multiple existing lists - but
only sends one message to each person - even if the person is a member
of multiple lists?
a. LSOFT calls this a "superlist"
b. Can "Mailman" do this?
c. In this case, we have a system newsletter that will be sent to
multiple lists. I'd like people to receive the message only once, even
if they are on more than one of the lists included in the mailing.

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 will move a few lists to mailman, from ecartis.
I want to retain message numbers, and continue current

I am new to mailman. I can undump, config.pck, I can chnage

I wonder if there are any plans to change the default charset for the
'de' locale of Mailman to anything else than ISO8859-1, because this
charset cannot even represent our current currency symbol.
I have changed this myself for now (adding needed variables to
mm_cfg.py, converting translated templates to the new charset,
recreating pod files), but I think it _might_ be a good idea to change
the default charset for all languages spoken mostly by countries which
are in the 'Euro' currency zone to at least ISO8859-15.
I acknowledge there might be some difficult cases (for exmaple, in
Switzerland, there are people who might be interested in running a
mailing list with a 'de' or 'fr' locale, but they don't use the 'Euro'
as currency there).

Mailman version 2.1.8
I administer mailman on a few domains, and on one I receive a lot of
spam seemingly sent to the mailman@ list. I can work on my spam
filters, but I'm trying to understand the path the mail is taking
The mailman@ list has only me as the admin and NO members.
I have just a handful of lists on this machine: users@, dev@, svn@,
When mail is sent to mailman@ I get a message with the following
Envelope-to: <my email address>
The body of the message is simply the sender's body only -- it's not a
mailman-generated message (e.g. approval message).
In my sender filters I have:
My question is why is mail to mailmain@ seemingly getting delivered to
Another thing I'm finding curious: I have RFC2369 headers enabled on
all lists (including the "mailman" site list). And indeed messages on
the other (e.g. users@) lists include these headers. But mail sent to
mailman@ does not include these headers. Why is that? Because
List-Post, List-Subscribe, etc. have no uses for the mailman list?

I have a Virtual private server (Fedora, 256 RAM, 10 GB HDD). I'm hosting an announcement list of about 15,000 addresses. I noticed that each time I post a message to the list, the free disk space (command: df -h) is decreasing even after mailman finishes delivering all the messages. I had to reprovision the server and format the hard drive twice and restore my data when the disk is full!
is there a kind of temporary files that mailman doesn't cleanup? what can I do?

Subject: Mailman on multiple domains
I have Postfix and Mailman running on a RHLE server. Mailman and
Postfix work fine for a single domain setup.
I have now setup my postfix configuration setup to accept mail for
multiple domains. I did so editing main.cf to include the new domain I
want to receive mail for, created a local user account for the user, and
created a virtual_alias_maps file which tells the email to the second
domain to forward to the new user account I setup.
So I have mailman running on a new VirtualHost, I can create a list from
the web interface, I can join lists and all emails from the system look
ok (having the second domain name). When posting, I get the following:

This must have something to do with my virtual_alias_maps file, which
currently has nothing in it except a map from the second domain to a
local user (which I just did as a test). I'm sure I'm missing something
