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

Thanks in advance!
I need to migrate lists from an *old* Slackware system running MM 2.0
(0x200000f0) to a new system where MM is installed via RPM (2.1.9).
I've read the posts linked to by the FAQ, and the basic procedure is to
copy the data, lists, and archives directories and run withlist
fix_url. But I have a couple of minor questions:
According to the UPGRADE document, file formats have changed as have
actual files (some new, some gone). What triggers the 2.1 version to do
the necessary conversions ? Is it just finding files of the old version
and recognizing them as such ? Does the last_mailman_version in the
data directory trigger this ?
There are various minor concerns, such as file permissions, aliases,
redoing public archive symlinks, and so forth. This made me wonder if
it would be easier/possible to run bin/newlist for each existing 2.0
list in the 2.1.9 system, and *then* bring over the data, lists, and
archives/private directories. Advisable ?
This appears to be a moderately FAQ, but I haven't yet found an answer
in the archives, and I can't immediately extract one from the source.
As a list owner, how do I *by email* subscribe a number of users,
without requiring either their or my separate approval?
(The normal list setting is to require admin approval.)
Our corporate mail gateway adds a header to flag things it believes
are spam. I'd like to be able to take advantage of this in my Mailman
lists. I'm having some problems setting the header_filter_rules
If I use a simple regex, like
it seems to show up properly in the configuration. But if I use a
more precise regex that accounts for all forms of whitespace with the
"\s" sequence, like this
then what appears in the config file is
in other words the backslashes have been quoted and are now literals.
I have tried this through the web U/I and using config_list and I get
the same result. It seems pretty clear that both interfaces are
sanitizing inputs by quoting things that could cause problems, but I
haven't dug deep enough to find where that's happening. (I don't
really want to have to customize Mailman for something like this.)
I was surprised that I couldn't find any other mention of these kinds
of problems, and that the only examples people were using to
illustrate the use of regexes in Mailman config files didn't involves
special sequences like "\s". Is anyone else using more sophisticed
REs successfully? Is there some trick or Python arcana that I'm
missing (I know barely enough Python to get _into_ a paper bag)?
I haven't verified, but I assume the same treatment is applied to any
config field that can take a regex.
Thanks in advance for any help.

I would like a web interface for users to create lists, without giving
them access to the master mailman password.
Is there anything that would work for this? I know I've seen it
before, but it may have been a custom web application.
