for our organization, we do host several mailing lists that serve two
* for our internal communication
* for people outside our organization to contact us
However, it sometimes happens that a person that is not a member (and
thus not subscribed to the list) writes us an email and we do reply, but
to the list only (by mistake), not delivering the message to the
I plan to write a script that will handle such cases in a generic way,
however, I don't like reinventing the wheel. Does anybody know if this
problem has already been solved?
Need some insight and help. I have recently taken over a list that is using mailman v 2.1.14. And we are getting a lot of bounce notices regarding members and de-activation's of their subscriptions due to this. In the bounce notices I get as list manager I see the following 'This message failed DMARC Evaluation" Also members are complaining they see no messages coming from the list or even their own posts.
Can any one guide me on this?

I can't seem to find this option!
I have mailman 2.1.16 setup on a test server, but I cannot find the
from_is_list option. Is there some special config magic that is needed for

I run a forum on Ibiblio and am seeing a strange phenomenon lately. Messages
are dropping off for certain users like AT&T, sbcglobal, etc. Gmail
users are seeing
these messages as Spam, but others are seeing nothing. Strangely, these
do appear in the Archives of Ibiblio. Many of these messages are sent
subscribers and Yahoo. I am being told that AOL and Yahoo are appending
things to their headers which makes them incompatible with standard
Whatever, Ibiblio seems to accept these messages and attempts to send
They either wind up in Spam folders or never appear, at all.
Unfortunately, if these messages are being filtered by some server, some
of our users
are not aware that they were even sent and no error messages are generated.
I would like to know what is happening to these missing messages that do
not show up
in Inbox's, Spam Folders, or Trash Folders. Do I tell our AOL users to
messages to our forum?

After completely abandoning the use of a Plesk based Linux package (see
<https://email@example.com/msg63856.html> ), I
have been able to successfully deploy Mailman lists on a
Webmin/Postfix/Dovecot Linux package.
All mailman lists functions & features work well on the later system except
in one specific case. When I try to subscribe to a list (say Mailman)
using an e-mail address based on a virtual domain (say domain.net) which
is co-hosted with the default virtual domain used for Mailman lists (say
domain.org), I immediately get an Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender
error as depicted below :

The 1st mail was sent to confirm the subscription to a list. The second mail
is the response received in return, indicating that the mailman specified
address was unknown. The attached error report follow thereafter.
The collocated virtual domains labeled domain.org and domain.net are
hosted on the same physical server email@example.com, sharing a common IP
Would such behavior be related to a bad or incomplete definition of the
mydestination / myorigin parameters in the Postfix main.cf file ?
Here is an excerpt of the related values produced by the postconf n
command line :
mydestination = localhost.$mydomain, localhost, localhost.localdomain
mydomain = localdomain
myhostname = vps12345.ovh.net
mynetworks = 127.0.0.0/8
myorigin = $mydomain
unknown_local_recipient_reject_code = 550
If not, what else could cause such failure ?
Thanks for any feedback / help on this issue

Currently, when choosing a specific local language (French in our case) for
Mailman' lists user interface, I have noticed that the standard home page
(for example the one depicted by 'lists.domain.org/mailman/listinfo')
remains in the English language. Would there be a possibility to localize
that page as well ?
While being on this topic, I'd like also to know if it is possible to
customize the general look & feel of the display UI say, at the minimum,
eventually replace or add a custom logo at the level of the Mailman/Python
logos appearing at the bottom of each page ?
Many thanks for any guidance on such localization/customization aspect of

I hate disturbing you :-(, but I can't manage it myself :-(
my original mailman server broke. I had a backup.
I loan a new hosted server, mailman is here:
the list "test" should be open.
I followed all the infos to move mailman from here:
http://wiki.list.org/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=4030682, but only mostly,
because the infos are old and my distribution is openSUSE, so some minor
changes (for example wwwrun:mailman as owner)
I try to summarize what I do here:
my problem is that mailman seems to work, I can create a mailing list, see the
old archives, but I can't have any mail received by mailman...
I receive the message if I try to subscribe a list, then nothing - I receive
the confirmation message, but no acknowledgement. looks like the mail do not
I openned the firewall for smtp, used genaliases..
what can I do?
I am a member of multiple email lists from different sources and I have
multiple email addresses set up. It appears that emails from my yahoo.com
account are not receiving messages. I have checked with other and it
appears that if they use yahoo, they are not getting the email either. It
happens with multiple email lists from totally different sources. There is
one source I know of the their yahoo users are getting the emails. It there
a setting I can check or somewhere else I can look at?

Can Mailman be set-up for newsreader access ? I would like to allow users to access the mailing lists I host using a newsreader instead of the conventional e-mail method.
How complicated is it to set-up Mailman so that users can access it this way ? Will I need to configure my server for this or is the configuration restricted to the Mailman administrative interface ?
Thank you in advance of your help and replies.
My understanding is that DMARC alignment depends on both SPF and DKIM
and that if a test using either protocol passes, then a DMARC will pass.
This is probably an oversimplification, but I'm exploring the idea of
whether it might be possible to interpose a milter using OpenDKIM
(perhaps zdkimfilter) between Mailman and the outgoing SMTP server
(courier-MTA) so that outgoing list posts are appropriately signed.
I know next to nothing about DKIM, but there was a time when I knew next
to nothing about almost everything, so I learn what I have to to make
things work :)
