[Mailman-Users] setting up mailman

Now correct me if I am wrong, but it would seem that you would be able to
change the "Host name this list prefers" to whatever your want it to display
on the from domain.

Here is the excerpt from the help...

host_name (general): Host name this list prefers. 
The host_name is the preferred name for email to mailman-related addresses
on this host, and generally should be the mail host's exchanger address, if
any. This setting can be useful for selecting among alternative names of a
host that has multiple addresses. 

I use this on a single machine where I have multiple domains that also use
mailman for mailing lists.

Have a great day.

	You need to define your masquerade as host.  Generally this is done 
	by changing the DM definition to something like


	in your sendmail.cf, then restarting sendmail.

	Does syslog say anything extra, like "Failure to exec script. WANTED
	x, GOT gid y"?  If so, you need to recompile Mailman with the


	option to the configure script.

	That's because step #2 failed.

	Unfortunately, no.  The closest thing that you can find is



	Mailman-Users maillist  -  Mailman-Users at python.org
