Can we add email address into the Ban List based on word pattern? We have a
particular email address that we want to prevent from re-subscribe.
However, we would like to prevent any emails that have "sexy" pattern in.
Yes, we have an email subscribed to our lists and as soon as a message send
out. The senders will receive replies soliciting meetup encounter.
If we want to prevent any emails that contain the word "sexy", will this
This is not necessarily a Mailman question, but I thought someone
administering Mailman may have come across this before.
A person is receiving mail through a list. The address that they are
currently using (@gmail.com) is not subscribed to the list. I assume that
means a subscribed address is forwarding to the gmail account. The gmail
account people don't have any idea what they could have been subscribed as.
I thought maybe the Mailman or MTA logs would show the susbscribed address
forwarding to the gmail address. However, I can't find anything, so can't
identify which address is the culprit.
Does anyone have an idea how to get to the bottom of this?
Suddenly, I cannot log into Ibiblio as an administrator.
I get the following error message:
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.12
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.
When I try and log into: http://lists.ibiblio.org/mailman/admin/midfex
How can I resolve this problem?

We just moved Mailman to a new server and the version we're now using is
2.1.14. I'm sorry I don't remember what the old version was, but it was
pretty old... we had not upgraded for years (oops).
Anyway, with our old Mailman, whenever I created a new list it would
automatically put a nice stanza into my aliases file that looked like this:
# STANZA START: academicsenate
# CREATED: Fri Sep 5 14:31:10 2008
academicsenate: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman post
academicsenate-admin: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman admin
academicsenate-bounces: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman bounces
academicsenate-confirm: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman confirm
academicsenate-join: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman join
academicsenate-leave: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman leave
academicsenate-owner: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman owner
academicsenate-request: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman request
academicsenate-subscribe: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman subscribe
academicsenate-unsubscribe: "|/usr/lib/mailman/mail/mailman unsubscribe
# STANZA END: academicsenate
It would place it in the file in the correct alphabetical order, and it
would run newaliases when it was finished.
I have to confess I got rather spoiled, never having to put in the aliases
But with this new version, when I create a new list I get a message showing
me the format of the aliases entry and telling me I have to put this into
the aliases file myself.
It seems strange to me that Mailman would have this nice automatic entry
feature, and then would somehow go back to making us do it by hand again.
I must be missing something. Is there a configuration that I can tweak
that will enable automatic entry into the aliases file?
We are running on Ubuntu precise (12.04.4 LTS)
Thanks for any help you can give me!
