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 recently sent an invite to an unknown third party. The invite came
from my mailman list, we gave full particulars of who and where we are.
We specifically advise that they are not at this stage subscribed to
anything and will have to follow the detailed instructions (ie confirm)
if they want to join the list. The third party is in the same trade as
us, and deals with the same specialities, a third party customer had
given me their address in good faith.
This week my ISP contacts me with an upstream request from the national
backbone provider to in effect desist from sending spam.
Looking at the email returned, it was to an @yahoo address, spamcop
seems to have detected spam on the basis of it being a mailman message,
I am not certain that it was not initiated by the recipient but the
official complaint originated from yahoo it seems (who should surely

As I said in my reply, this is hardly spam, I did not send it out to
half a million addresses purchased on a cd. This makes a mockery of
genuine spam prevention efforts when one email from a genuine address
can be allowed to cause this. It
I don't want to make a mountain out of a molehill, but what can I do
about this. Is this a common occurence? Are invites from mailman now
considered fair game for spam detection software and humans alike?
Mailman somtimes gets stuck on my installation. By stuck, I mean I get no
mail and no subscription notification. Until I relaunch it.
I generally does not happen for a few months, but it is the second time this

Last time it got stuck, I did the modification suggested here :
Not sure this is useful, but
POSTFIX_STYLE_VIRTUAL_DOMAINS = ['domain1.tld', 'domain2.tld']
I would like to figure out what is happening, therefore I don't relaunch, in
case there would be some more information I could get.
Any advice ?
I've had a list running fine for months, but after I restored my
complete disk from backup I am getting this message when posting to
<a2-16v-list(a)mail.a2-16v.com>: Command died with status 2:
"/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post a2-16v-list". Command output: Group
mismatch error. Mailman expected the mail wrapper script to be executed as
group "80", but the system's mail server executed the mail script as group
"mailman". Try tweaking the mail server to run the script as group "80",
or re-run configure, providing the command line option
I've checked the faq here -
I've also searched around and I'm not really understanding why the
group "80" isn't translated to mailman? Ideas?
mailman exists in /etc/group
mailman exist in /etc/passwd
mailman:x:80:80:GNU Mailing List Manager:/usr/lib/mailman:/sbin/nologin
I don't understand what the problem is. I didn't want to just re
configure mailman without first asking what else to check. After all
this was working for many months prior to the hard drive restore.
