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:
Sep 24 10:34:18 2009 (5311) Uncaught runner exception: regular_exclude_lists

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've noticed an odd thing but am not sure if it's Mailman (2.1.11) or my
browser (Lynx 2.8.7dev.9) which is at fault.
I've noticed that if I go to pending Moderator requests and approve a
message from a particular user, if I leave the resulting page open which
says "Click here to reload this page" and another message from that user
comes through which requires approval, if I click to reload the page, the
message is automatically approved and I'm told there are no pending
I wondered if perhaps someone else was clearing the queue at the same
time, but I've seen this several times now so I'm confident that it's
either Mailman or my browser that's to blame here.
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.
Ralf pointed out the --fromall option on shell's remove_members script.
On the remove_members help it mentions
-n Don't send the user acknowledgements. If not specified, the list
default value is used.
Which is this default value ?
On remove_members --fromall ,.,. it did not send out any ack to the
unsubscribed user but it did send to the administrator as defined by the
mailing list option.
is there any way to unsubsctibe a user from all the mailing lists on a host?
I am utilizing Mialman's web scripts through my php files and I make any
subscriptions and deletions
( I don't like the idea to execute shell scripts through php)
Thanks in advance
The subject pretty much sums it up: How do I unsubscribe morons^Wusers that
report list mail as spam instead of unsubscribing, causing ARF reports
from their mail service providers?
I know the python.org listmasters have some working Python scripts to
do that stuff (it's mentioned in Ralf's/Patrick's deliverability
slides), do you guys share?
