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

A couple of weeks ago our Mailman 2.0 server crashed (a physical
problem, it wasn't Mailman's fault!) and we had to upgrade to 2.1 in a
real hurry. As a result, I had to copy the entire ~mailman/data
directory... which may not have been such a good idea:
[mailman@list ~/data]$ ls -al | wc -l
There are a _lot_ of files prefixed with "heldmsg-" in the data
directory, as you can see. There are entries all the way back to 2005,
in fact! I realize that I'm going to have to deal with all those files
at some stage, but I currently have another problem. A user
administers a list called "ams-announce", and they are receiving
emails with the subject "The AMS-announce(a)list.bowdoin.edu mailing
list has 31 request(s) waiting for your consideration". However, when
they or I go to the admin interface, there are no pending requests.
The user has been getting the same message for more than a week now,
always with the same amount (31) of pending messages but there are
never actually any messages there for the admin to discard.
Oddly, there are no files prefixed with "heldmsg-ams-announce" in the /
home/mailman/data directory, however I did grep for the string "ams-
announce" in _all_ heldmsg files and there are many matches --
virtually all of it looks like spam. I suppose, then, that I have two
* how can I print how many moderation requests a list has pending, and
is there a way to flush the pending requests from the command-line?
(The FAQ entries deal with doing it via the web interface, before
2.1.5's feature of "discard all messages")
* can I print a list of what lists have what files pending in the
format of heldmsg-$listname-$msgID, so that I can cross-reference the
files I have on the filesystem (many of which are really old) with
what the lists think need to be delievered?
This is with a 2.1.9 server.

I'm installing mailman, I created the first mailing list, it works
fine. So, it's possible to subcribe to the list, that works, but it
isn't possible to send mails to the mailing list. It's a probleme with
sendmail, I'm reading the documentation of mailman, but the output of
the command "grep smrsh /etc/mail/sendmail.cf" is empty (sendmail is
installed). Do you have any ideas? And when I send a mail to the list, I
see nothing in log... In conclusion, mailman nearly works, there is
"just" a problem with sendmail.

Howdy! I moved our domain hosting to a new company, and among other
things the new service uses Mailman instead of the home-grown mailing
list the previous service used.
So now I have to manually transfer my 40+ subscribers from the old
server to Mailman. Hooray for bulk subscribe! I can just cut-and-paste
the list of users, problem solved.
Except... I'd also like to bulk populate the subscriber *names* field.
Is there any way to do that, or will I have to go back and individually
key them in to the user list after I paste in the address list?
