You know what would be super.. In Privacy Options > Sender Filters, the
four fields titled "List of non-member addresses whose postings should
be [accepted | held | rejected | discarded]" should be able to accept
Mailman list names in addition to plain old e-mail addresses.
My Mailman server holds an all-students lists and an all-employees list
(subscriber lists for both are updated nightly with sync_members; and
can be quite dynamic at the start of the semesters).
We'd like to say "If you are a member of all-employees, then you may
post to all-students. Otherwise, reject." In essence, it's an
announcement-type list; but instead of just a handful of static
auto-accept addresses, we have thousands of dynamically changing
Similarly, a company might have a Cabinet or "executive management" list
which might serve as as a normal mailing list AND also as an auto-accept
list for a employees or peons list ;-)
I'm currently doing a list_members on my employees list, and pasting it
into the auto-accept textbox in students.. its a pain.
