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 am happy to announce the next beta release of Mailman 2.1.10.
This is a security and bug fix release and it is highly recommended
that all sites upgrade to this version. Mailman 2.1.10 also adds support
for three new language translations, Galician, Hebrew and Slovak and a
few new features.
Mailman is free software for managing email mailing lists and e-
newsletters. Mailman is used for all the python.org and
SourceForge.net mailing lists, as well as at hundreds of other sites.
For more information, including download links, please see:
Special thanks are due to Barry Warsaw and Tokio Kikuchi for much coding
and support, Moritz Naumann for help with security issues and Jim Tittsler
for a significant patch.
Here's a list of the major changes.
- - The 2.1.9 fixes for CVE-2006-3636 were not complete. In particular,
some potential cross-site scripting attacks were not detected in
editing templates and updating the list's info attribute via the web
admin interface. This has been assigned CVE-2008-0564 and has been
fixed. Thanks again to Moritz Naumann for assistance with this.
- - Changed cmd_who.py to list all members if authorization is with the
list's admin or moderator password and to accept the password if the
roster is public. Also changed the web roster to show hidden members
when authorization is by site or list's admin or moderator password
- - Added the ability to put a list name in accept_these_nonmembers
to accept posts from members of that list (1220144).
- - Added a new 'sibling list' feature to exclude members of another list
from receiving a post from this list if the other list is in the To: or
Cc: of the post or to include members of the other list if that list is
not in the To: or Cc: of the post (Patch ID 1347962).
- - Added the admin_member_chunksize attribute to the admin General Options
interface (Bug 1072002, Partial RFE 782436).
- - Added the Hebrew translation from Dov Zamir. This includes addition of
a direction ('ltr', 'rtl') to the LC_DESCRIPTIONS table. The
add_language() function defaults direction to 'ltr' to not break
existing mm_cfg.py files.
- - Added the Slovak translation from Martin Matuska.
- - Added the Galician translation from Frco. Javier Rial Rodríguez.
Changes since 2.1.10b3 include the Galician translation and updates to
the French translation (Vietnamese and Danish translations were updated
in 2.1.10b3). Other changes since 2.1.10b3 include:
- - In 2.1.9, queue runner processing was made
~ more robust by making backups of queue entries when they were dequeued
~ so they could be recovered in the event of a system failure. This
~ opened the possibility that if a message itself caused a runner to
~ crash, a loop could result that would endlessly reprocess the message.
~ This has now been fixed by adding a dequeue count to the entry and
~ moving the entry aside and logging the fact after the third dequeue of
~ the same entry.
- - Fixed the command line scripts add_members, sync_members and
~ clone_member to properly handle banned addresses (1904737).
- - Fixed bin/newlist to add the list's preferred language to the list's
~ available_languages if it is other than the server's default language
- - Changed the first URL in the RFC 2369 List-Unsubscribe: header to go
~ to the options login page instead of the listinfo page.
- - Changed the options login page to not issue the "No address given"
~ error when coming from the List-Unsubscribe and other direct links.
~ Also changed to remember the user's language selection when
~ redisplaying the page following an error.

I apologize if this is covered somewhere in the FAQ, I must have missed it.
I think I am pretty close to getting my first list working but having an issue I just cannot seem to work out on my own.
It has to do with postfix not being able to locate the aliases.db and I am getting lots of these in the syslog:
fatal: open database /etc/aliases;hash:/etc/mail/aliases.db: No such file or directory
In looking through the files on my machine, I have an aliases.db under /etc as in /etc/aliases.db and another under /etc/mail/
If I am interpreting the permissions on these aliases.db files, the one under /etc/mail appears to be associated with a smxx account, which I am guessing is Sendmail? The other one, under the root of /etc is associated with the root user.
I thought Mailman should have configured aliases for me when I installed it???
In any event, how can I fix this problem?
