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 would willingly pay a hundredth of a cent (or so) per email sent if
it would reduce spam to near-zero.
According to this study, $0.0001 per email sent would more than wipe
out the spammers' profit, but sending legit email to every one of my
couple-dozen Mailman lists would only cost about a dime. I wouldn't
even bother to pass that cost on to my customers.

I read some threads on producing relative URLs for the admin pages but
it seemed like there is a bug/hole and I did not find any closure on it.
Has that issue been resolved and if so how do I configure mailman to
generate relative URLs rather than absolute? Thanks.
1st, forgive me if this has been answered before. I have searched high
and low and can not find an answer to my question.
How can I setup a list so that mail can be accepted ONLY from 1 IP
address? As an example I have a list named abc(a)123.com and it is setup
as an announce list only accepting mail from 1 user with an address of bob(a)123.com
. How can I set this list up so that even if the mail appears to come
from bob(a)123.com the email will post to the list ONLY if bob(a)123.com's
email came from bobspc.123.com which has an an IP address of
