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'."
I'm considering the move of a longstanding discussion list with 600+
members from L-Soft Listserv (hosted at a university) to Mailman on
There are a few management features I've really grown to like from
hosting other lists -- I was hoping if someone can tell me if there's
any way to enable them in Mailman (assuming one can't hack Dreamhost's
install . . .?)
1) Mark S helped me get a modification set up to a current mailman list
I manage that enabled real-time notifications of moderation requests
(Thanks again!). Any way to do this here?
2) I suspect there's a fair amount of joining and leaving this list each
day in its current incarnation, but don't have a way to receive
notifications; of course Mailman does have the option of having owners
notified when members join and leave, but I'm afraid this could generate
too much mail for some moderators. Is there a way to set this
preference individually like in Yahoogroups so that a mod who didn't
want these messages could not get them, while the other mods still would?
3) I may just be tired but is there a was to set the archives to be
available only when logged in? And/or to munge e-mail addresses like on
Ugh . . . I think there was a number 4 but maybe it will come back to me.
Clarifying questions welcome if anything's not clear.
Does mailman log posts which are automatically rejected (e.g. non-member posts)? I assumed that it would in the post log file, but I just tested it and my intentionally rejected submission does not appear in the log file.
I ask because on occasion a list member complains that their message was rejected inappropriately, and in fact they never sent it to the list, or they sent it to the wrong address, or they sent it from the wrong address, and it helps to be able to look at a log file and verify or refute their claim, particularly given that they almost invariably delete the rejection notice the instant it arrives.
Installed mailman and have confirmed that everything works fine…except the
“If you are having trouble using the lists, please contact
mailman(a)example.com.xn--ivg doesn’t send an email that I can find anywhere on the
server or in my accounts…any thoughts on how to fix this? Any help would
be greatly appreciated!
Happy New Year!
I have a setup with mailman where I use virtual domains with postfix.
This is working very well.
I know need to rename some of the domains for the list. So I do the following:
I have a list named mytest in mydomain.sdu.dk and i want to change the domain to newdomain.sdu.dk
I call withlist -l -r fix_url.py testsdu mytest -u newdomain.sdu.dk
And then genaliases to rebuild the virtiual-mailman file
I can address the list and everything seems to work apart from the list is missing on the web
when using the listinfo command. I'm sure that his is because a url is changed but I can't
find out where. It's not in the config file. Where to look ??

2003 1.8T. I happened to notice the other day that the rear interior
lights don't work any more. I don't normally notice them so I dont' know
how long they've been out [but I was vaguely aware that it was a bit
darker in the car when I opened the doors]. They have three-way tilt
switches [I assume: on/dooropen/off] and no setting of the switch gets
either driver or passenger light to come on. [so not likely a burned out
bulb, unless both rear bulbs burned out at the same time].
Is this something I could (try to) fix or should I just wait until my
next trip to the dealer? Thanks!

I know this is a relatively easy question, but I don't have enough of
the Mailman/Handlers examples and what I got from searching the web to
get a clear picture of how to create a simple handler that does this :
- Parse the Subject line looking for "*rror*"
- If so, send an email to an arbitrary address
The handler will not stop the normal flow of the list in any manner
(e.g. it won't hold an email or something). I'll be using the list to
store backup reports in which the subject line will have either "OK" or
"Error" and I just want to notify someone when an error occurs so they
can go in the list private Archive and see what's going on.
I understand the pipeline system and how I could add the Handler for a
specific list, but I'm looking for a detailed Python API listing
somewhere to see what I can really do in the process() function, e.g.
def process(mlist, msg, msgdata):
subject = msg.getheader('subject')
# parse subject (I'll find that) and if error
Thanx for pointers,
We are using mailman as our mailing list at OSU.
A professor who is an admin for his mailing list found that three people's email addresses were removed from his mailing list due to bounced score.
Is there a way to see a members current score on bounce levels?
I would appreciate it very much if you could tell me the way to see a members current score on bounce levels.
Thank you very much in advance.

We have automotive process to subscribe/unsubscribe when users visit a site and select a specific list and leave their email than robot must send a command by email to mailman to subscribe or unsubs that user.
How to do it by email command not from GUI or command line tool without notify user?
Thank you in advance,
