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
sequence. So I need to start message number from a
How can I do that ?
I am new to mailman. I can undump, config.pck, I can chnage
post-id. I do not know, how to put that fiile in pck format.
Secondly, I manage to change post-id, will it break anything
I'm having some problems with my lists recently. I see in my mail log
that "mailman post" has been called. However, when I look in the
logs/post file, it's been almost 24 hours since anything has been
I'm running mailman on Ubuntu Hardy, and another weird thing is that
whenever I stop mailman, it always leaves at least one process hanging
around. I have to forcefully kill it. After I stop it, I still see:
list 3833 0.0 0.4 83076 7540 ? Ss 08:29
0:00 /usr/bin/python /usr/lib/mailman/bin/mailmanctl -s -q start
list 3842 0.1 2.5 105372 38148 ? S 08:29
0:01 /usr/bin/python /var/lib/mailman/bin/qrunner
Even more strange when I reboot the machine, I'll see 2 entire sets of
mailman processes, almost as if the mailman start had been called twice.
In any case, right now it seems that mailman has stopped accepting
posts. Is there a way to get more debug from mailman when "mailman post"
is called? I don't see any errors, yet I don't see the post log file
Mailman used to send me an email as the "site admin" that a new list has
been created. I use the web interface to create new lists. This email
had the aliases I needed to add to the /etc/mail/aliases file in the
body of the email. I have upgraded Mailman months ago but didn't
notice that I had not been receiving this until now as the lists were
I know I can run the genaliases command to get the same output but I
fear I am not seeing all of the mailman site admin email.
Is the email sent from a python script to an alias? is it specified in a
I have 5 lists, list1, list2, list3, list4, and list5..
all the lists are working fine except list4, when adding or removing members from list4 it just tilts and nothing happens..
either by MASS SUBSCRIBE, or MASS REMOVAL or using add_members or remove members via SSH it just holds and nothing happens even if I left it for 30 minutes.. nothing until I click Ctrl+C to return to the command line..
what could be the problem?

I've got a tool which generates html mail to a number of mailman lists.
I recently converted this to send html formatted mail. The mailman
attached footer (the four liner footer which details info about the
list) is now being delivered as an attachment to each mail. Is there a
way to get mailman to associate this footer to be just a continuation of
the html mail body?
