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.
I received the following error this morning. So I rerun configure again with the following command: ./configure --with-cgi-id=apache --prefix=/var/mailman. I'm still getting the same error. Is there any place that I can look for so that I can debug this problem better? Perhaps, looking at the config history file or something. Any other places that I can check the cause of this error?
"Mailman CGI error!!!
The Mailman CGI wrapper encountered a fatal error. This entry is being stored in your syslog:
Group mismatch error. Mailman expected the CGI
wrapper script to be executed as group "nobody", but
the system's web server executed the CGI script as
group "apache". Try tweaking the web server to run the
script as group "nobody", or re-run configure,
providing the command line option `--with-cgi-gid=apache'."
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 have a problem with a user of a list that I create. She receive all
the list emails but she can't send emails. She recive this error
Remote host said: 554 <chile-datos(a)mail.degu.cl>: Relay access denied
I think that is strange because other users have no problems sending
emails to the list.
I know this is so not what mailing list admin normally should allow but it
has been asked for and the one asked worries more about complains such as
"why this person do not have permission to send to this list" etc. Anyway,
how do i allow anyone valid mail address to a list?
Hey Mailman postlist subscripers!
I did some minor tweaking on 2.1.13 Mailman as well as went through most
of the Finnish translations. Im not sure should i post this to anywhere but
Here is minor changes to code:
'<mm-host>' : Utils.get_domain()
--- To get correct mm_cfg.DEFAULT_URL_HOST instead of server hostname,
for some reason MailList.InitVars() is either not ran yet or variables
has been overwritten? Im not sure why mm_cfg.py settings are not working
2) Mailman/MailList.py:187 and Mailman/HTMLFormatter:46
host_name = Utils.get_domain()
--- Same as above
3) In 2.1.11 there is different fontsize in admin/listinfo pages, is
this same for 2.1.13? If not, this is easily changed in
MailList/Cgi/admin.py - i changed this for 2.1.11 but i dont remember
was this in 2.1.13 or did i change this for 2.1.13 too... pff. Example
We have a Mailman service that is hosted. I previously asked a question re: Bounce notifications. Mark indirectly suggested that I change my bounce processing score to <=1. I think what I am going to do for initial testing is set the bounce score to .5. That way I will be notified of pretty much any instance that something comes up.
Then after kinks get worked out, I can raise it to 1, so then I am only notified of hard bounces.
1. Does that sound like a good idea or a good place to start?
2. Would a hard bounce be something from a server like "Undeliverable due to File Attachment Limit exceeded" or "Unknown User"?
3. What type of bounce would a "Too many recipients as this time" or "Delivery Delay" messages be? Soft or Hard?
4. Is there a way to keep a subscriber from being notified when their account is disabled? Like should I set the Membership Disabled message to 0 so they are just removed and I am notified that way? I am trying to do as much behind the scenes without them being notified and worrying about what happened.
5. How can I simulate a bounce to test this out. I tried adding a bogus email address from our domain to the list, and it seemed to make delivery to the other recipients take longer, and I don't remember that email address' bounce score raising any higher. I at least expected to get a "User does not exist" message.
As I said before, I want to be notified of any problems to begin with to see if I need to contact any administrators in case our domain is blocked. And then, once these kinks have been worked out, I would like to just receive FAILURES or ERRORS.
