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'."

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

Last week I upgraded to Mailman 2.1.18 in order to get the DMARC
workarounds new in that version. I set dmarc_moderation_action for my
list to "Munge From" and waited to see what would happen. Despite that I
seem to still be having DMARC bounces, as this morning I got 22 "Bounce
action notifications" for list subscribers from Mailman.
I'm running the just-released RPM for 2.1.18 on Fedora 20. I have the
python-dns package installed, which I read was required for DMARC
checks. When I grep my logs for 'DMARC', all I see are the bounce
messages in my Postfix log---so if the DMARC checks that should be made
when a post from a yahoo.com account comes to the list are failing,
they're failing in a way which isn't showing up.
There is one unusual thing about my list---namely that it sits at one
end of a bridge to a phpbb forum. That is, all of the posts from the
forum are posted to the list with their Sender set to a special address
which is subscribed to the list, and all post from the list are
received by that special address and posted to the forum from there.
This means that a lot of the addresses in From headers of messages going
out over the list are not actually subscribers to the list. Could this
be tripping up the dmarc_moderation_action?
I have read the FAQs so I don't believe I missed one, but it could be
possible. Is there a way, with full personalization, that I can include a
logo in posts on a list? A remote possibility...

I am one of the list administrator/moderator for several mailing lists,
most of which aren't based on my machine (a few are in another continent),
so I am not the site admin for them.
In particular three of these are on the same machine, therefore my firefox
is able to remember the password for one mailing list only (if I reply YES
to the request to change the stored password, it remembers the one of the
last mailing list visited).
Is anybody aware of any firefox add-on which allows to remember multiple

Am I missing something?
I run a cancer support group. Is there some way to append the list address
appended to "CC" of incoming messages? I would like my members to simply
"Reply to all" and share response with the others in the group.
What do you think of Yahoo Groups' From munging style and their
Here is an example:
X-Original-From: Mark Rousell <markr(a)signal100.com>
From: "Mark Rousell markr(a)signal100.com [some-mail-list]"
I feel this is one of the better combinations of munging and new
headers. All the information is there (and is very clear) and the
X-Original-From header could (in due course) be recognised by mail
clients and mailing list archive software.
I realise that this falls foul of
and yet it does seem to offer many benefits, especially the
X-Original-From header and the promise it holds for automated recognition.
It is also possible to add X-Original-From to the .INVALID/.REMOVEME
munging that some prefer too:
X-Original-From: Mark Rousell <markr(a)p-reject-domain.com>
From: "Mark Rousell [via some-mail-list]"
