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'."
Hi, This problem is not caused by mailman, but I still want to give it a
shot here. I'm hosting a mailing list on top of mailman. Emails are
supposed to be sent out by AWS ses. However, ses requires that sender
address must be verified, which leads to a problem that emails sent by
subscribers to mailing list cannot be sent to other subcirbers, since their
addresses are not verified. And it is impossible to verified every
subscriber. Are there smtp service providers allowing unverified email
address to send out emails, or do I have other solutions?
Dear Mailman Cognoscenti,
I'm helping one of my list owners send out 5K plus invitations to
students to subscribe to his mailing list. Our current configuration:
Since this was the first time doing this, I suggested breaking the
batch input into 3 groups, 50, 500, and the rest. The 50 went fine,
as did the 500, but the largest batch gave him a generic web server

I looked at the logs and I couldn't find anything that hinted at what
went wrong. So I asked the owner to send me the last back and I'd
give it a try. I wrote a script that removed folks already subscribed
to his list and split the remaining subscribers up into 6 files with a
thousand records each. I just tried uploading the 1st batch of 1K,
with the following options:
Subscribe these users now... (*) Invite
Send welcome message... (*) No
Send notifications... (*) No
And entered a 7 line paragraph explaining the invitation.
I ended up having the same error happen. Looking at the Mailman logs,
I can't see any difference before or after my submission. In the
HTTPD logs, I see:
>> [Fri Aug 26 19:59:23 2016] [warn] [client 188.8.131.52] Timeout
>> waiting for output from CGI script
>> /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/admin, referer:
>> [Fri Aug 26 19:59:23 2016] [error] [client 184.108.40.206]
>> Premature end of script headers: admin, referer:
So is there an inherent limit to the number of invites that can be
submitted via the web form?
As a work around, how would I do large invites on behalf of the owner
from the command line, including the 'extra text' that is allowed via
the web interface?

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.
Hello everyone ,
I have a list with many subscribers with different email addresses ,
when users send to the list from any domain like yahoo or gmail it is
rejected by some servers like yahoo as the domain of sender is yahoo for
example while yahoo doesn't allow the ip of our server as permitted
sender and emails sent to the list are sent from the server ip but with
users address , is there a way to change the sender address to our
domain which permits our ip as sender , while keeping the reply to
address that of the original sender , so that the sender would be known
Thanks in advance ,

I am facing a weird problem with nightly_htdig. It's been refusing to
complete of late. I would find the process still running even in the
Using `top`, I see it's the topmost process. I then decide to kill it, and
it dumps core, which I believe is okay, but what would cause this
behaviour, especially started after I upgraded to 2.1.24
I have rebuilt the archives, but that hasn't changed things.
Maybe it's something not related to mailman....

"Oh, the cruft."
One of my users has requested a list -- let's call it
list1(a)example.org. He wants a second name for this list --
list2(a)example.org He says he heard Mailman can do this. I have
experimented a little, but can't see how.
Can Mailman do this -- and if so, what do I do.
I noticed that a list digest is not being sent. The list is set to send a
daily digest regardless if the quota has been reached.
I verified that the cron is running:
Jul 16 12:00:01 swiki CROND: (mailman) CMD (/usr/bin/python -S
The digest.mbox has accumulated since 7/16 til the present.
I would appreciate any ideas about what might be happening and how to
