I will move a few lists to mailman, from ecartis. I want to retain message numbers, and continue current sequence. So I need to start message number from a non-zero number.
How can I do that ?
I am new to mailman. I can undump, config.pck, I can chnage post-id. I do not know, how to put that fiile in pck format.
Secondly, I manage to change post-id, will it break anything else ?
You can change post_id (not post-id). It won't break anything.
Two ways to set post_id are bin/withlist and bin/config_list. With either method, you need to set post_id to a floating point value. E.g., if you want to set it to 237, you need to set it to 237.0. This can be done by putting the single line
mlist.post_id = 237.0
in a file and running
bin/config_list -i /path/to/file listname
I have tried this method. It worked fine.
You can also set post_id in an interactive withlist session. E.g., for a list named test
$ bin/withlist -l test Loading list test (locked) The variable `m' is the test MailList instance
m.post_id = 237.0 m.post_id
Unlocking (but not saving) list: test Finalizing $
The last input following the m.Save() input is a control-D (end of file).
