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?
I'm sorry if this was posted earlier, but I didn't see it in my
searches through the archives.
It seems like every one of the members on my Mailman server who use
Yahoo for their mail are missing the main body of the e-mail sent to
I am using Python 2.1.14 on a CentOS VPS. I have the list using a

My non-digest Header and Footer are both defined, and both come in
just fine in a Yahoo e-mail. Again, the body (between header and
footer) are missing from the e-mail.
I have also noticed this issue when I read the same e-mail on my own
account which is hosted on the VPS if I read with SquirrelMail instead
of using Roundcube.
Is there anyway to fix this so that my Yahoo members can read the
No other users on other e-mail providers have complained to me as of

Thank you for the help.

I am about to install Mailman on a RHEL6 system using Yum. How do I integrate HTDIG with it?
I have previously done HTDig integration on an install from source on Solaris, which involved a bunch of patching, I'm relatively new at Linux, but I suspect there is a better way to do it.
Well done Mark! I did fail to mention that I'm doing everything via https
and apparently did not do step #3 in the 'Securing Mailman's web GUI by
using Secure HTTP-SSL' instructions.

I have a number of holds waiting for moderation on my new installation.
However, when I try to change the hold (accept, discard, etc) and click
'Submit All Data' nothing changes. All the holds are still in place.
I've run check_perms and fixed everything needing attention since I figured
this must be a permissions issue. I've also verified that url rewrites are
off so it's not a post/cookie issue as far as I can tell.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
I just realized that there does not seem to be a way to export / import
users with ALL user flags and user info... I know list_members, but this
does not seem to help with all flags, also I found some adwark script that
scrapes the mailman admin web interface (?) - however it does not store
language settings for all users... also it just exports to an excel file for
reporting, but there does not seem to be a way to import the users back into
a fresh mailman install... ???
Certainly I am not the first user who would like to copy a few mailing lists
over to another server - I did not expect that this will be a major issue -
how can this be achieved? I am not able to just copy the config.pck files,
because the new server is a hosted mailman install, also there is a major
version jump and I can not find any documentation on format changes of these
files across versions... so I would like to use the commandline tools, but
still maintain all available user info to appear in exactly the same way on
the new host.
Thank you very much for your attention!
we are a local TV station & newspaper having a mailing list with 2+ Million Subscribers.. what is the best server configuration (CPU, RAM) that can handle this list? taking in consideration that only 1 daily email is sent to the subscribers..
Thank you ..
I run a Mailman list and when I look at the list's "config.pck.xxxx.dump" file, I see three letter codes alongside each member's name in the "user_options" section.
Such codes as 264, 268, 280 and so on.
Any chance of finding a full list of what they mean please?
Similarly, in the "members" section and the "digest members" section, they all have a "0" alongside the addresses. What does this signify?
I can tell that the code next to addresses in the "hold_and_cmd_autoresponses" section will include dates - presumably for when the applications were first held for approval, but what is the number after the date? Is it the number of days it will be held for? Or the number of applications from that person?
Then there's the "u" in "usernames". What's that all about?
And finally, the long code next to addresses in "delivery_status" section. What do they mean please?
Thanks for any help you can give. Or directions to a full list and explanations would be much appreciated.
