I've encountered a puzzle where weekly digests are not being sent, and I'm trying to understand how periodic digests work.
Daily digests and running the command below (as root) seems to work okay.
/usr/bin/python /var/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests -l <LISTNAME>
Looking at Mailman's cron for digests I see the command for daily digests:
# Noon, mail digests for lists that do periodic as well as threshhold delivery.
0 12 * * * /usr/bin/python -S /var/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests
All good there.
For weekly and monthly digests to be sent should I add additional lines to Mailman's "crontab.in" (or even the system's crontab)? For example:
# 3:00 PM every Friday
0 15 * * 5 /usr/bin/python -S /var/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests
# 9:00 AM first day of each month
0 9 1 * * /usr/bin/python -S /var/lib/mailman/cron/senddigests
Or does the "senddigests" script handle weekly and monthly digests by retrieving info from somewhere?
And if so, where does Mailman get the information as to which digests should be sent weekly or monthly?
And also if so, what day of the week/month should it be sending by default for those digests?
Thanks in advance if anyone can straighten my head out on this.
