Right now I have a multiple lists setup for hosting mail lists off one
of my hosted sites, I would like to add another domain to host mail
lists from now also. Under my /usr/local/etc/postfix/transport I have
Can I just add the other domain.tld mailman: to the transport file and
run postmap /usr/local/etc/postfix/transport
and then in my mm.cfg.py add another line below my current one
and then restart mailman?
This is on FreeBSD 6.3 with Mailman 2.1.9 installed from ports.
I'm relatively new to mailman. I've searched the mailman lists and tried to find a solution to my issue
Has anyone encountered the below issue and could offer some help.
I recently moved mailman from one server to another.I tarred up the old archives and moved
them to the new server, and simply untarred them into:
The system has been running for a few months now and I have noticed that the archives
list doesn't show anything past the month when I moved over to the new server.
When I log onto the server, I can see the messages in .txt files for the following months after the move.
However, when I vi the index.html it looks the same as the site i.e. no months following the server move.
Is there a command I can run to update the archives webpage? Ideally I would like the archives webpage to update
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

I need to delete a message from the archive. I read in some post I have
to open mbox file of the list and manually remove the message as in
source code. Then to rebuild the archive it's necessary to backup the
archive folder and leave it blank.
Now I have a large mbox of MB 200. Can you tell me how I can handle such
a file direct in shell access or downloading and uploading it?
Thank you for your time,
I have a host running Debian Etch with Mailman 2.1.9, and everything is
honky dory. However, I need to transfer a list from a host running
Mailman 2.1.9.CP2, and the owner of that list is a bit worried about the
downgrade of Mailman to 2.1.9. I have looked everywhere for the CP2
version, but can't find it on the Mailman website, and Google searches
have just got me Mailman pages from hosts running that version - there
are quite a number.
Is there any difference between the two versions, or is the CP2 version
just used in a specific Distro? I did check to see if I was on the
latest version from Etch, and would prefer to keep this version, as it
is updated as required when doing a system update in Debian.
Also, is there anything I should be worried about when transferring from
the list? The users have limited shell access so far, so I am going to
be looking at that on Monday, if possible getting the ISP to tar up the
various list/archive files from /var/lib/mailman or the like.
Any help gratefully received.
I keep seeing this error in my mailman error logs.
I've tried googling it for reasons but to no avail.
Anyone seen it before/have a reason.

I run a list using Mailman 2.1.9; I am only the listadmin, not the site
admin. I have configured the list so that subscribers who choose the
digest option get one or more daily digests if there are any posts that
day. On or about December 16th, the digest subscribers stopped getting
any digests at all. Exception: if I use send_digest_now, they get a
digest. The digest volume number increments each month. I used
send_digest_now in the middle of February and the result was volume X
issue 1; it should have been more like issue 10. This tells me the
problem is in Mailman.
Is this a known problem?
My hosting company tells me that the mail logs indicate that the majority of
Mailman's messages to Yahoo addresses return a "deferred" message. Here is
the complete message:
whateveraddress(a)yahoo.com R=lookuphost T=remote_smtp defer (0): SMTP error
from remote mail server after initial connection: host g.mx.mail.yahoo.com
[126.96.36.199]: 421 4.7.0 [TS02] Messages from 188.8.131.52 temporarily
deferred due to user complaints - 184.108.40.206; see
All of my outgoing email uses the same server located at 220.127.116.11 and
any single email that I send to any Yahoo address using any client is
received just fine.
My Mailman list is very small with < 20 members and only 3 Yahoo addresses
and the user complaint thing is bogus. This is a golf list for crying out
loud.all of the members want to know what their tee times are for Saturday!
All of Yahoo addresses have the same issue, even my own which I added to the
list for testing. And I said majority, because 1 in 15 or so messages will
miraculously come through.
Does anyone else have any experience with this, and is there something that
I can do on my end that would help?
I have a difficult problem. (Maybe not for you)
Every day we do an import and a member_sync for a couple of lists.
# Postings from any of these non-members will be automatically accepted
# with no further moderation applied. Add member addresses one per
# line; start the line with a ^ character to designate a regular
# expression match.
We have lists where people has to mail to, and which they are a member
of. So the [Privacy-options, accept_these_non_members] do not work....,
because they are a member....
You have to uncheck the moderate square in the member list.
My question is : can we have 1 list of addresses which can mail to the
list. Now we have to make an exception for the people who are a member
of the list.
(We are doing an automated script import etc... so this is an issue for us)
Or am i missing something ;-)
