I am the mailing list administrator for a charity cycling team. The list
currently has about 150 members. The list and our website is hosted by a
local ISP who is running Mailman 2.1.34.
We seem to be having all too frequent occurrences of multiple bounces that
seem to be related only to the domain of the address recipient. Previously
we have had issues with AOL.com and Mindspring.com email domains. The main
result of these are disabled subscriptions due to excessive bounces.
The latest in this continuing saga occurred on Monday morning when I
received notification that 12! list members with Yahoo.com email domain
addresses had been unsubscribed from the list! I am assuming that this is
the sum total of ALL yahoo addresses in our list.
The interesting thing about this occurrence other than losing the name
associated with the email address (since the members were unsubscribed not
just disabled) is that I NEVER received ANY bounce notifications other than
the unsubscribe notification. I find this quite odd and unsettling
considering that the list shows that it IS configured to send earlier
bounce notifications and I have received them in the past... just not
leading up to this latest incident. The typical error message is:
jonxx_dajxxn(a)yahoo.com <jones_dajuan(a)yahoo.com> has been removed from
MSing-ride. (disabled address)
So I guess that my question is whether or not these types of problems are
now endemic to all email lists or if....Our ISP is technically "challenged"
1. Doesn't know how to properly configure Mailman to send out the requested
2. Continues to get blacklisted for sending SPAM even though they don't.
Thanks for any insight.
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.
We are using mailman 3, and would like to whitelist a domain for acceptance
of messages as non-members.
It seems possible from my online searches, I have also tried with an online
python regex tester(https://www.regextester.com/94044), but I have not
managed to be successful.
Below are 2 examples I have tried

I have created mailing list (mailman3 + postorius) to use as our members
newsletter. We enter and remove the Members manually and only use it as
a tool for us, therefore we do not want the default welcome message
(which we have disabled), but I can't find a way o disable the
notification once the member is removed from the list. The
"list:user:notice:goodbye" Template only seemed to affect the message
content but not the header.
I would appreciate any tips and ideas, thanks a lot in advance!
P.s. Hello World!
I have a list on my mailman server 2.1 called “mailman”, with no users. Is this a default list that gets created, can I delete it what is it for, it may have been created by an old admin who was testing? Also, I started getting a lot of subscription requests to this list, I think it is a bot, but not sure what it is trying to do. Anyway this got me thinking. Is there a way to setup a list to automatically discard subscription requests and NOT send a rejection notice? I could ban all domains from that list, but it is my understanding a rejection notice gets sent. We have some lists where the admin is the person who populates the list.
We have DMARC "munge from" configured on all mailing lists on
This week, I learned that one of our lists is not actually munging
I've done a `config_list -o` and compared the output to a list that does
munge correctly and I'm not seeing anything that would explain the
When a poster from a DMARC-crippled domain tries to post to this list, I
see a line in vette that the DMARC policy has been found. There are no
messages in the error log.
Any idea what could explain this? And how I could go about fixing it?
