first confusing thing. at
there is the following:
Archives of this list are searchable by using the general Python.Org
advanced search page <http://search.python.org/> /(hint: select Python
Mailing list Archives, but turn off all the other collections)/
maybe i'm missing something, but there is no /Python Mailing list
Archives/ choice. are the archives really searchable?
the thing that i've been searching for with no luck on finding answers:
install goes pretty well:
i followed the /usr/share/doc/mailman-2.0.8/README.REDHAT instructions
$prefix/bin/check_perms says "No problems found"
as "mailman" i crontab the $prefix/cron/crontab.in
and verify that i did this step that a few people on the list have told
me that this is my problem - i don't think so.
i get the confirmation mail of my new list (i get this sent to a
different domain than Mailman host)
i can sucessfully reach the URLs listed in the message for my new list.
trying to subscribe as a "regular" user fails:
from the url i choose to subscribe. i receive the confirmation email and
reply to it to subscribe.
$prefix/logs/error contains nothing (file size is zero bytes)
$prefix/logs/smtp contains successful recips completed lines
$prefix/logs/subscribe contains the pending subscription lines
bin/dumpdb data/pending_subscriptions.db shows me pending subscriptions...
/var/log/maillog contains lines for my attempts to confirm
subscription. like this:
Jan 21 12:31:37 mail sendmail: g0LHVYa17837: to=<snaptrap-request@
host-i'm-trying-to-get-mailman-going>, delay=00:00:01, xdelay=00:00:00,
mailer=local, pri=30017, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent
no other info in maillog about anything mailman or sendmail
could someone give me a quick hint on tracing in python? i don't know
python. should i hafta?
any other ideas other than "don't use Sendmail" ? it's not my network
and the folks that own it want to keep sendmail.
i've tried things to the effect
O DaemonPortOptions=Port=smtp,Addr=127.0.0.1, Name=MTA
i can telnet to localhost port 25 and get SMTP saying hi to me.
can somebody give me some tips? i tried a few months ago and all i
heard were crickets chirping...
i'm not afraid of sendmail.[cm]*
