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
Where can I find the template for the monthly password reminder email?
I'd like to modify it so that it doesn't contain the password (our members
object to this being sent unbidden in plain text), and so that it reminds
users to make sure their subscription address matches the address from which
they currently send email (ideally with a link to their personal options
page so they can update).

I've followed the FAQ to move some lists across to a new server, but now
on the new machine any message posted to a list gets passed to Mailman
and then disappears. The Mailman error log says this:

I can't find any reference to this exception, so I'm a bit stuck where
to look next. Any ideas?
The new server is running a fresh install of Mailman (it didn't have any
lists before I moved these ones across) and the move went from Slackware
to Gentoo so many of the paths have changed, just in case these are
saved in the list data. (I have run the fixurl script as per the FAQ,
and the lists do appear in the Mailman web UI.)
I found this E-Mail address on the MailMan homepage and decided to
contact you as I don't seem to be able to locate the information I
To explain my circumstance. I am a visually impaired person, trying
to get to grips with administrating a mail server under Apple Mac OS X
10.5.7 (Leopard) server.
I need to host mailing lists under virtual domains hosted on our
server but can't see quite how this is accomplished.
Is there anywhere I can obtain this information as Apple's
documentation on this subject seems poor from what I've seen.
I really do apologise for any inconvenience I may cause you by
contacting you - but if you could point me to the relevant information
pages as to how to accomplish virtual domain list configuration under
Apple's server platform I'd be very grateful.
As a blind person this information is not always easy for me to
locate. Thank you in advance for any help.

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 done something stupid, and I don't know how to get out of it. I'm a moderator for the Knittingbeyondthehebrides group and I've accidentally banned a member. I was half-awake and accidentally clicked on the "permanent ban" button instead of approving her. Now I can't figure out how to get around that and approve the poor woman. Can you help? Is it possible to remove the ban from your end so that I may approve the membership?
First I wish to say hello to everyone as I am a new member and this is my
first post to the list. I have just purchased a Mac server with Snow Leopard
server installed and one of the main reasons for the purchase was my plan to
set-up some mailing lists. The following are some questions I have:
While setting up Mailman mailing lists under Snow Leopard Server I've run
into some questions and thought I would ask here for help. These are the
Q1. In Mailman how are mailing list subscribers set-up ? Are subscribers
set-up separately or do they have to be set-up as users in Workgroup Manager
I would prefer to set-up subscribers to the mailing lists separately as they
are not members of my workgroup. Is there a configuration pane under Mailman
mailing lists for setting up subscribers ?
Q2. I am trying to set-up two versions of each mailing list so that one
version allows attachments to be forwarded to subscribers along with the
posts while the other version blocks the attachments and only forwards the
text portion of the post. How can this be set-up in Mailman ? How can I
manage attachment rules in Mailman and create this redundant mailing lists ?
Where are attachments sent along with posts to the lists saved in OS X
(folder address) ?
Are there currently *any* web forum(s) that enable forum/mailman
mirroring ? In other words a Mailman email going to a web forum and
vica versa ?
I believe that something like this could work with phpbb2 but not the
current release. Can anyone help please ?
