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'."
We just moved a very old mailman infrastructure mailman to Solaris and sendmail.
It seems, when a message is posted, the "out" directory doesn't seem to clear out fast enough.
The size just stays like that forever and slowly decrements. When I look in /var/log/syslog (mail log of sendmail), I see deliveries going through.
I do a 'truss' of the OutgoingRunner python process and I see:
% truss -p 11997
recv(10, 0x00748454, 8192, 0) (sleeping...)
What is it waiting for?
I run a discussion forum and we have a closed list where
the members are the moderators of the forum. Forum users
can write to all moderators through this list's address.
Let's say the address is mods(a)myforum.mydomain.com
Now I would like to be able to create also a *real* mail
account with the same address, for SENDING (outgoing mail)
only. Each moderator is then able to send mail though this mail
account so that the sender of their mails is the (anonymous!)
list address mods(a)myforum.mydomain.com -- incoming mail for
this address should be ignored by our MTA (qmail) so that
mailman correctly takes it.
Is this possible and how must mailman and qmail be set up?
We are using Plesk but we also have root access if Plesk
is not capable of configuring this.
Thanks for any help!
Best regards, Stefan.
Hello Mailman gurus,
I hope a general question about Mailman's features and future direction (along with some Sympa comparisons) are appropriate for this list.
The University of Oregon is migrating away from Majordomo. We decided on Sympa because Mailman sends passwords over email while Sympa provides centralized (e.g. Shibboleth, LDAP, etc) authentication. If Mailman provided a way around the passwords in the clear issue, I'm pretty sure we'd go with Mailman because:
- Mailman is more thoroughly used and thus tested (one stat that gets at this is Alexa Traffic Rank: 165,692 vs 749,729 for Sympa)
- Mailman is more mature (the max bug ID for mailman in its issue-tracking system is ~913,400; the max bug ID for Sympa is 8,117 and there is still no bug category for Sympa's latest version -- 6.1.7 -- even though it has been out for over 4 months)
- Mailman has greater branch stability and code reliability (I noticed that Barry ran a pre-checkin acceptance suite for the Postgres patch for Mailman 3 before he checked it in)
- Mailman has a bright and well-documented future (Mailman 3 and its bug tracker, source code, milestones, etc)
- Mailman has a more active and supportive community, which is very important in resolving future issues (Mailman had 150 list postings in December and through mid-January while Sympa had 44; I've been impressed with Mark Sapiro's responsiveness on this list)
Does anyone know a way around the emailed passwords issue in Mailman, clever hacks, certain plugins, or a timeline for Mailman 3's release? I've written a number of Django apps using my own LDAP module, so I was also wondering if folks think now is a mature-enough time to perhaps grab Mailman 3, its Django front-end, and hack together what I'm after? A final, random question: Mailman 3 is still in alpha, but is it stable given that it's almost been in alpha for 4 years?
Many, many thinks for any help, pointers, or information,
I want to change the configuration of the mailing list so that all messages are
sent directly to the recipient, and the name of the mailing list does not
appear anywhere in the heads. Is possible now? Sla dan because I find
information FAQ from 2006
As a list administrator for several mailinglists I encounter the
I have two mailinglists under one domain. When sending an E-Mail to
both mailinglists the message is only delivered to one mailinglist. I
don't recieve a "recipient unknown" message or similar back so it
seems the message is blackholed somewhere.
This behaviour is seen when mailing from several different domains
(gmail, hotmail etc.)
The version of Mailman installed is 2.1.9
I checked the FAQ and list archives and was unable to find a similar
issue. Does anyone know what's going on? Is there some setting I have
Many thanks in adavnce for your help.
I have mailman version 2.1.9 installed in a shared environment. I don't have root access and I can't access the log files. My client has 5000 emails that I have successively imported all of the emails and have done my configuration on mailman. I added a gmail account to the list so that I could test to see if the message had gone through. Two days after I sent the message, I have not seen a sign that the gmail account received the email. There is no message in the spam folder of this account. I wanted to know if there was an easy way of determining if the message reached all of the members. As a side note, I did receive the email message to my account which is not a gmail account.
I have a problem with the public page "options"; I've already modify the
of the page but, first logging in, appears an other page, which asks for
password and/or email.
My question is: can I change that page, too?? How??
