Mailman version 2.1.16
Installed via apt-get
Server OS is Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
MTA is postfix version 2.11.0
When a user subscribes to the email list, an approval email is not being
sent to the admins/moderators. The variables admin_immed_notify and
admin_notify_mchanges are set to yes. The subscribe requests are getting
picked up during the daily cron job and an email is then sent at 8:00 AM.
Test emails to -owner work internally from postfix and when sent externally
Here's a link to all the log file snippets from the time of the subscribe
Any ideas where to start troubleshooting this issue?
I get lots of spam held for moderation from email addresses that begin
Hayley@ . I go to the moderation queue, discard each email address and tick
to ban that address from every subscribing. And to discard anything coming
from that address automatically. It would save me a lot of time if I can
have this happen automatically. But am not entirely sure how.
I've tried adding ^hayley to the list of addresses banned from membership
(subscription rules). And to the List of non-member addresses whose postings
will be automatically discarded (sender filters.)
Is that the right expression? And are those the right places to add it?
I didn't put them in the reject messages list as I thought that might send
an automatic message back saying the message had been rejected. Which would
be evidence ours is a real address and maybe encourage even more spam.
Have I set this up correctly? Any other suggestions?
(And if you're called Hayley and want to join the list - um - tough?!)
The installation instructions are a little confusing, but I take away
from them the best (almost default) choice for owner:group for the
"/usr/local/mailman" ($prefix) directory is 'mailman'.
Any other opinions or recommendations?
I'm looking for a way to block, or preferably hold for approval, subscribe requests where the email address contains a plus sign.
I've been getting a lot of subscribe requests from bogus email addresses that look like: adfslij+32987234(a)gmail.com.

i've installed Mailman3 on my Debian server.
It works fine but i have a little problem : all replied messages have
more "Re:" in Subject and i've not found where to control/remove it.
Any idea ?
PS : google not helped me.
Recently, I was troubleshooting another issue and decided to get rid of
some old testing lists. I removed the mailman list that I initially
created on setup. Looking through the archives, I found this thread -
which basically says don't delete. The thread is from 2005, but does this
still hold true?
If so, can I simply issue a newlist command and recreate the mailman list
or is there some other method? Thanks!
I am the admin for a group & some members frequently get warning messages
"Your current bounce score is 3.0 out of a maximum of 5.0"
The subscriber has done nothing wrong & these messages are usually Hotmail,
yahoo & aol accounts.
What can be done to reduce / eliminate these messages?
The mailing list archive issue that I was inquiring about is a pretty low-volume list. When looking into the archive problem, i saw there were some messages listed in /var/lib/mailman/logs/post that I never received. When looking at the member list, most of my list members were no longer receiving emails due to excessive bounces. I have it set to notify the admin (my gmail account) when a user is disabled, but I've never received a notification. I enabled notification when a message I send to the list is sent out, and I receive that notification, but nobody receives the message. Admin emails from mailman go through just fine, but any message posted to the list does not. I have an IMAP email account on the same server which hosts the mailman instance, and it seems to get all my test messages that I post just fine, but all yahoo, windstream, gmail, etc get bounced.
an example line from the /var/log/mail.info file is:
Sep 10 12:49:21 bunsen postfix/smtp: 0DF621C375: to=<web-p6036h(a)mail-tester.com>, relay=mail-tester.com[184.108.40.206]:25, delay=2.6, delays=0.03/0.07/0.86/1.6, dsn=5.0.0, status=bounced (host mail-tester.com[220.127.116.11] said: 550 Message Contains SUSPECT Content :: Please contact abuse(a)fortressitx.com for further information. (in reply to end of DATA command))
I've been using the services at mail-tester.com to ensure that my domain keys, DMARC, and SPF are all set well. You can see those results here (http://www.mail-tester.com/web-p6036H).
I deleted the entire mailing list after exporting the 114 email address, and remade the list, and it behaves the same.
The odd thing is, I have another mailing list on the same server with only 6 members, and it seems to be working fine!
Any clue where to look? I've contacted abuse(a)fortressitx.com and received no reply.
