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 recently updated our (vhost patched) Mailman installation
from 2.1.14 to 2.1.18-1 (https://launchpad.net/~msapiro) in order to
workaround Yahoo's recent change to their SPF policy that this
version addresses. Virtual mailing list hosting worked fine up until
Here is an example of our mm_cfg.py :
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'list.ourdomain.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'list.ourdomain.com'
DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'
VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = On
If we change the default values above and run the below command, the
available mailing lists move from the old default to the new.
bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url --
All add_virtualhost configuration lines are ignored.
Since withlist is able to read the changes in our mm_cfg.py, this
does not strike me as an issue with our configure options which were
I am unaware of a method we can use to further debug this, such as a
command that would effectively dump out Mailman's configuration
options, thus validating if it is even reading the add_virtualhost

If ARCHIVE_TO_MBOX is set to 0 in mm_cfg.py, Mailman will not
create/update LISTNAME.mbox/LISTNAME.mbox files.

Lots of information is lost if there is no .mbox file.
You can do as well as anything with
cat /usr/local/mailman/archives/private/kinejapan/*.txt > kinejapan.mbox

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.15
We're sorry, we hit a bug!
Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but the
webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.
The above message shows up on the web pages, unfortunately the last log written
to is qrunner, error is empty, so no info on what it is about.
The last thing changed is the adres of the main pages.
It looks like the mail-system is not affected, any idea what is going on?
Would like to show some logging, but it simply is not there.

A list that is hosted here reported that the membership list and other
settings had reverted to previous content.
I took a look at the files and see this:
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 14526 Oct 30 08:00 config.pck
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 48950 Sep 29 13:15 config.pck.corrupt
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 14526 Oct 30 08:00 config.pck.last
-rw-rw---- 1 apache mailman 49499 Sep 29 16:38 config.pck.safety
It looks like the config.pck file was corrupt. Just for clarification, what
are the other config.pck* files ? Since teh config.pck.safety looks like it
is much larger in size, and I ran ./dumpdb to read it and it appears to be
more current data, I am thinking that I can use it to overwrite the
config.pck, which apparently was used because the file was corrupt.
Can someone explain how these files work when the file becomes corrupt?
Can I just copy the config.pck.safety to config.pck ?
Our school newsletter often has a few images accompanying news
articles. These images load fine on android phones and in regular
computer browsers. Images do now show on the same message and email
account when viewed on iPhone's. On iPhone all I see is an outline of
an image with file name and none of the images load/show.
Articles/text loads fine.

We are on v. Mailman 1:2.1.18-1, Debian 3.16.3-2
We're running a mailman 3.0.0b at ulists.org and so far it was working
quite well. Since a few days, email delivery seems to be broken, but
only for the posts, not bounces.
When someone subscribes, he gets the welcome message.
When someone posts, nothing is delivered. Same when posting from hyperkitty.
Here's what happens when en email is sent to a list:
On the MM3 side:

Any idea of what I should check?
Thanks a lot !
Did something change recently with Membership searches in mm-2.1.18-1?
It seems that the search text no longer searches the complete
subscriber list, rather only the selected (i.e. A, B, C, D, etc)
grouping. I searched the bug reports and didn't see any thing
Due to changing ISP's I was forced to change my web port to something
other than 80. On port 80, everything was working well. I moved all of
my web interfaces to port 8000. I thought I followed the instructions
correctly and did:
bin/withlist -l -r fix_url <listname>
It seems to work fine using
http://host.example.com:8000/mailman/admin/<listname> but any link I
click on doesn't add in the port number (:8000) so by default, it's
trying port 80. Is there any way around that? If I manually copy the
link and paste it in the url of the browser and manually add in the
:8000 the link works fine. The problem then is when I try to submit
something... It doesn't take.
I would appreciate any assistance.
