I have messages accumulating in the qfiles/shunt folder.
Running unshunt does nothing. Literally.
No error message, no progress message. The only change I see is the timestamp on the shunted messages is updated to when I ran the unshunt command.
This is on Debian 9.6 with Python 2.7.13 and Mailman 2.1.23 , all installed from the Debian package manager.
BTW - I've been using Mailman for 10+ years on this machine. It's not a new install and these are not new lists.

I have moved my email list to a new server.
All is working well, email are send out.
BUT.... I do have a problem with the archiver.
The *.mbox archive is updated after a emails has been send.
But the HTML pages are NOT updated.
The then latest email is replaced by the send later email. So the list
is not growing any more.
I tried : bin/arch leden archives/private/*.mbox/*.mbox and rebuild the
At the end : Pickling archive state into
This looks good after (* is replaced by a name :-) and the archive is
A new message will got the same behavior and overwrit the last message.
And hit wheer to look?
Using version 2.1.23 <http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/index.html>
I wanted to free some server disc space, therefore I wanted to delete my mailman archives. Due to a mistake, I accidently deleted the whole /private and /public directorys. Now, when I want to access my lists through the online admin backend, I get an error.
Is there any way to rebuild (or reinstall) the archive directory structure? The only documents I found only were about the rebuilding the archive content, but not the directory and file structure itself.
Any help would be appriciated.
I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask my second question, if
not apologies in advance.
I run an announcement-only mailing list which has become the target of a
lot of spam, so I've set unsubscribed emails to be immediately
discarded. 99% of the discarded emails are spam, but unfortunately there
is a very small number of ham emails that get sent to the list by
non-members, which I need to be made aware of so I can contact them
So I have turned on the option for discard messages to go to the
list-admin (me), and I get sent the "Auto-discard notification" messages
which includes enough information for me to tell at a glance whether I
need to contect the sender. Great!
This is the question which is definitely on-topic: am I doing it right,
or is there a better way I haven't thought of?
Now, the second part which may be off-topic...
My mail server uses spamassassin, and nearly all of the auto-discard
messages are flagged as spam and filtered into junk mailboxes which I
consistently forget to check. Out of sight, out of mind. I've found a
few ham messages from mailman in my spam folders, months after they were
I tried to whitelist emails from the mailing list by editing
and I added the line:
whitelist_from_rcvd mailman-bounces@mydomain server.mydomain
where I have my actual domain in place of "mydomain". I expected that
this would mean spam assassin would whitelist emails from
mailman-bounces, and not check them, but it seems to still be doing so:
the auto-discard messages still get spam header lines and a spam score.
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks in advance.
