First let me say that I know nothing about python, cgi scripts, or any
sort of code (as will probably become clear!)
It seems to me that when a person subscribes to my list using the
"subscribe" form, the file in Mailman which comes into play is
"/Mailman/Cgi/subscribe.py" - Yes?...
And I know it is possible to send an "unsubscribe" email to (for
instance) "testlist-unsubscribe at somedomain.com" in order to unsubscribe
and it has to take the form of "authentication= (password)" and then
the unsubscribe request (please say if I'm wrong, as I can't remember
where I read this - I know you can do it with a "delivery off" email)!
So. Is it possible therefore to use the "subscribe.py" as a model to
produce an "unsubscribe.py" script which can be called by a form in the
same way, thus speeding up the unsubscribe process, which at the moment
is done by a form taking you to a password authentication page and then
to the options page, etc?
Sorry if I'm showing my utter ignorance to all you learned types on
If this IS possible, then is it possible to do this sort of thing for
"delivery off", "delivery on" etc, etc, etc?
(And then all I need to do, is find someone who knows how to write cgi
