Posting to a list while being a memeber form another listPiece of Cake...

Create a bogus user on List B and set them to "No Mail"
Dump out the users from List A - ~mailman/bin/list_members
Clone the dumped list into List B using the bogus user created earlier -
Set List B so that only members can post.

Viola - your users in List A can now post to List B.  They are technically
members of B, but they don't get any mail sent to B.

You can easily setup a script to automate the process on an on-going basis.
If you do, may I suggest dumping the member lists of both lists into two tmp
files and using "diff" to make your clone adds...

For a simple alternative, setup a user that can post to List B
Send folks in List A the email address and let them setup their Email client
to use that as one of their "personalities".  I use several email clients
and all of them allow folks to change (on the fly) who the email is from.

Good Luck - Jon Carnes

another list

  I have the following situation:

  List A is a generic, plain ML to which members can post

  List B is an "announce" type list: only one person can post, members read

  Members of B want to post to A without being members of A, but *have to*
be members of B. In other words, they dont want the traffic from A but still
need to post to it.

  What set up should I use for this?

  Thank you.
