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?
I am pleased to announce the release of Mailman 2.1.30rc1.
Python 2.6 is the minimum supported, but Python 2.7 is strongly recommended.
This is a routine bug fix release with a few new features. See the
attached README.txt for details.
Mailman 2.1.30 will be the last release of the Mailman 2.1 branch from
the GNU Mailman project. It contains some new strings which are
untranslated in most of the i18n translations. If you can help update
any of the translations, please contribute your changes.
Changes can be submitted via a bzr merge proposal on Launchpad or by
sending an updated mailman.po file and or templates directly to me. This
will be the last chance to get i18n updates into a release.
Mailman is free software for managing email mailing lists and
e-newsletters. Mailman is used for all the python.org and
SourceForge.net mailing lists, as well as at hundreds of other sites.
For more information, please see our web site at one of:

I am seeing our mailman(a)lists.company.nl being used to try to spam
people and receiving mail delivery failures from
I removed the mailman mailinglist but that ended up disabling mailman
and all of the mailinglsit from working. I created the mailman
mailinglist again and the spam started again.
I looked at the the options but can not find the right ones that might help?
PS. I had mailman not advertised by default but some Debian update a
while back seem to have made it advertised. I disabled the advertising
of the list but the spam keeps coming. Maybe disable advertising by
default for the mailman default list?
What are the recommended steps?

I can't seem to get acceptable_aliases to work...
(domain names changed to protect the innocent, but all match up)
comm(a)lists.lf.me = List email address
info(a)lf.me = Google group (google group has one email address which is
info(a)lf.me is a member of the mailman list and is set for nomail
User another(a)domain.com sends email to info(a)lf.me

The above is correct as user another(a)domain.com is not a member of the
In the email header there is
I have in acceptable_aliases (tried various things)
and require_explicit_destination is yes
I believe that should allow email sent to info(a)lf.me to be accepted by
the list, maybe I am reading this all wrong?
If I am doing this wrong how do I get a google email to send to mailman
and be accepted?
info(a)lf.me was a real email address and I converted to a group so that
all on the list could see it rather than person having to deal with the
(I could have just forwarded the email in google but I didn;t want to
have to deal with the email account that would never be looked at.)

It will according to the mailman website. all I want is for my mailing list

I have a user listed in both list administrators and moderators - same valid email for both and they’re not able to post to the list. It’s closed only admins and moderators can post. I have no Idea what could be different the setup is pretty straightforward just list the addresses in the respective boxes. Can someone provide some guidance here as right now I’m the only moderator that can do anything and I have other things to get done besides admin other folks lists.
Thank you very much. I can add any additional info you may require.
