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 will move a few lists to mailman, from ecartis.
I want to retain message numbers, and continue current
sequence. So I need to start message number from a
How can I do that ?
I am new to mailman. I can undump, config.pck, I can chnage
post-id. I do not know, how to put that fiile in pck format.
Secondly, I manage to change post-id, will it break anything
We have set up Mailman as a closed, private list for an international
society. Members are subscribed by the Secretary, via the Admin
control panel. (Anyone who wants to join the list has to e-mail the
Secretary, and only the society members are eligible to be joined to the list.)
As far as I can see, that means that members won't ever be asked for
a password/don't need a password to send messages to the list. But
they still would need a password to be able to view the Archives
which we have set to "private". When I tested accessing the
archives, I got in with my own e-mail address and the Admin password
(my own e-mail address is on the subscriber list and is difference
from the list-owner e-mail address).
Obviously, we can't give 400-plus people the Admin or Moderator
passwords so that they can view the Archives. Is there a way of
having a third password, which we can give to the membership (and
reset from time to time), to enable members to view the Archives?

On some of the mailman lists I manage, there might be some value if when
the mail comes in to mailman, if I could parse the mail looking for key
phrases or terms and based on what is found, either tweak the mail
contents and/or insert some additional information above or below the
mail's contents before mailman sends this updated mail message out to
The information added to the mail could be based on the mail's contents
and/or information maintained in a file that would be tracking the info
that was added in previous mails.
Is this possible? Issues to be aware of in doing this?
I want to deny list subscriptions to any user whose email
address does not include my domain.
I realize that I can do that by having the list admin approve
subscription requests, but I'd prefer to automate the process.
I would hope that a rejection notice would be sent to any person
who subscribes and does not have the correct email domain.
Does anyone know how to do this - or is this something
that I should submit as a feature / enhancement request?
