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'."
Hello - I was wondering if anyone has a way to provide subscribers a
simple and easy way to unsubscribe from a mailing list. I do not
provide passwords, so I was wondering if there is a simple enter your
email address box that I can include on a link in my footers?
Thanks in advance.

I'm having an issue with any new lists created in Mailman, it appears
to be forcing each mailing lists host_name to: multiplay.co.uk
So any welcome emails specifically states:
"To post to this list, send your message to:
Where the host/domain for Mailman is set to lists.multiplay.co.uk
My mm_cfg.py is at http://pastie.org/4178388
My main.cf and master.cf is at http://pastie.org/4178383
Is there something totally obvious I'm missing which would be causing
it to send the wrong address in the welcome email?

I've been contracted to do a Mailman setup for a company that wants to set
up a newsletter-type list. They'd like to use a database for the back-end
and to hide as much of Mailman's internals as possible without creating
too much work.
First, databases. We'd prefer to use PostgreSQL but I've not managed to
find any code for doing this. We can use MySQL instead. I found a guide
which references files at
Is this the best approach/patch to use? Do people doing this use
As for the web stuff, are there things we need the web interface for or
can we do everything via the command line? I'm thinking we probably need
the web UI for some things but don't recall exactly what.
We want to do all we can to protect our web reputation. We joined all the
feedback loop services we could find. in addition to AOL, hotmail/msn and
Yahoo, I found a list here and applied to others:
I applied to Earthlink as directed, and when they did not respond, I sent a
2nd request, and got this reply:
> Your request has been denied. It is EarthLink policy to only add ISPs and
> MSPs to our FBL service.
> Earthlink Network Abuse Team
That seems a little closed-minded. Why would they not want a mailman list
to be notified? Has anyone had any experience dealing with Earthlink on
I have created a mailing list called ABRC Board; I can successfully send and
receive messages via this list.
Is it possible to have the "From" field reflect the name of the sender only?
Currently, the "From" field reads as follows:
From: "abrcboard-bounces(a)abrc.com.au [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org]
On Behalf Of
Hamling, Stewart S"
Also, is it possible when an email is received, that list members can see
the names of all other list members receiving the same email?
A minor little niggle that has bugged me for a very long time but never
enough to bother you guys with it until now...
I know there must be a way to do this, but my js foo is basically
What code can I add - and where - to set the cursor focus to the
password field on any/all of the list's admin login page so I don't have
to click into it before entering the password?
I just noticed that the new German HTML templates added in 2.1.15 use raw
UTF-8 encoding instead of HTML entities like the older templates. I'm
referring to these files in .../mailman/templates/de:

That causes breakage, because the archive pages themselves are encoded in
ISO-8859-1. I'm all for moving to UTF-8 entirely, but as far as I can tell
that hasn't happened. I've been wrong before, but I would assume that's a

I want to refresh a list of email addresses in a member announcement list, I have the full names and email addresses in a text file.
I am going to set bounce options such that I can remove members straight away that are bouncing.
I have the following questions:
If I upload this text file as is, if the member is already subscribed, will it populate the name field?
If I remove all the members from the list, what is the easiest way of doing this without notifying everyone of this?
