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'."
Is there an efficient way to change the domain name that mailman is
I have two mailing lists that were created for an organization before
that organization had their own domain. At the time the organization was
sure they did not want their own domain and would not be getting a
Since then, they have chosen to get a domain and set up a web site.
I would like to move their mailing lists onto their domain. It looks
like the process for this is:
1) get the list of subscribers
2) delete the mailing list from the one domain (losing the archives)
3) create the mailing list on the new domain
4) subscribe the list of subscribers
This process doesn't seem too difficult, but I would prefer to keep the
archives, if possible.
Both domains are on the same server, running CentOS7 and PLESK 12.5, if
that makes a difference.
I have waited almost a year for AOL and Yahoo to admit that they messed up and to remove their DMARC policy. My AOL and Yahoo subscribers are pretty upset at me because I won’t let them post. A number now have two subscriptions, one for posting (from GMail) and another for receiving the messages.
So against my better judgement, I included this hack in Cleanse.py;
< from email.Utils import formataddr, parseaddr
>from email.Utils import formataddr
< # Added to deal with DMARC issuej
< name, addrs = parseaddr(msg.get('from'))
< addrs += '.invalid'
< del msg['from']
< msg['from'] = formataddr((name, addrs))
\ No newline at end of file
I found it in the discussion list.
I don’t get compile errors, but Cleanse.pyc is not being updated. I have stopped and restarted Mailman and I have also rebooted, but same non-action. I have not tried ‘compileall’ and am not eager to, either (permissions, where to invoke, etc). Any suggestions?
The host OS is Mac OS X Server 10.5.8 with Mailman 2.1.14
I have some user on my lists, who complain they don't receive the list
mails anymore, since a few days.
Am am running Mailman 2.1.15 on Debian.
The error log is empty, the archive seems to correctly contain all recent
The people saying, they don't receive the mails are on GMail and German
Web.de hosts and they don't have bounces logged by Mailman.
Can you help me with this?
Are there any means, how I can analyse this issue?
I am running mailman as part of the bundled Mac OS X 10.6 Server. Recently, we had a hard drive failure. All was reinstalled from a cloned backup. Mailman "works” in that I can send messages and they go out and are received properly. The issue is that i cannot log into any of the list web admin’s to delete/add addresses, etc. When I try I get:
Bug in Mailman version 2.1.14
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.
If I put in an incorrect password I get the red “Authorization Failed” message up top.
I have looked-up and run various terminal commands, followed by restarting mail services and web services. Among these are:
chmod 02775 /private/var/mailman
chmod 02775 /usr/share/mailman
chmod 02775 /usr/share/mailman/messages/ar
chown _mailman:_mailman /private/var/mailman
chmod a+rw,g+ws /private/var/mailman
Nothing seems to reset the permissions to allow me to log into the admin.
I am not as savvy as the rest of you on this list, so simple terms and plain English appreciated :)
I've not hosted a mailman list in a long while. I'm trying to help
some folks migrate a list with ten years of archives and no current
subscribers just to make the archives indexable by the various search
engines. I see the list of hosting services on wiki.list.org, but I'd
appreciate actual recommendations (or pointers to prioritized lists),
not an unprioritized list.
I’m currently running a 10.6.8 Server installation with a couple of mailman 2.x mailing lists („Apple’s mailman“ + virtual domains).
Works great :-)
since iOS9 and MacOS 10.11 were published some things are not working anymore via SSL (WebDAV etc) anymore.
So I’m thinking about updating the box.
The current version of OS X Server 5 doesn’t ship with mailman anymore.
Therefore I was thinking to upgrade mailman to v3.
Did anybody upgrade mailman from v2 (apple) to version 3 in connection with an OS update?
If so, how did it go and what’s best practice?
(I did google before, but no results showed up - sorry, if that has been discussed before and I couldn’t find it)
thanks and cheers
I got the following from one of my list admins. Any suggestions as to
what might be going on? I've verified that the address in question is
indeed on the discard_these_nonmembers list and that the problem address
isn't already subscribed.
So we keep getting spam postings from jeffrey(a)elespectaddor.com
caught in the "needs approval" filter. He's not a member. I've
added him to the non-member filter under "List of non-member
addresses whose postings will be automatically discarded" and
banned him from membership. But half a dozen times a day we're
still getting requests to approve a spam posting when the
options I've set up are to discard anything from him.
How are these slipping through? And is there anything we can do
about it? It's not a disaster, but it sure is a pain.
Our MM version is 2.1.18-1.
