Hi Mark,


I have created the public directories in the archives and it works well
now, but however when I clicked on "List Archives", it will go to the
link http://mail.mys.avagotech.net/pipermail/venus (venus is one of the
mailing list), the error is "Forbidden...you don't have permission to
access /pipermail/venus/ on this server".


One more thing is that how may I change every subscriber email from
xxx at agilent.com to xxx at avagotech.com 







Best Regards,

I don't understand why these things are missing, but you must have an

archives/public/ directory, and an archives/private/<list>/ directory

and an archives/private/<list>.mbox/ directory for every <list> in

lists/. These directories must all be in the mailman group and have

permissions 2775 (rwxrwsr-x). The archives/private/ directory itslf

should have permissions 2770 or 2771 (rwxrws--- or rwxrws--x) and also

be in the mailman group.


The archives/private/ and archives/public/ directories are created by

the Mailman installation process and the archives/private/<list>/ and

archives/private/<list>.mbox/ directories are created when the list is



You will have to create the missing directories.


You also might need to create the default

archives/private/<list>/index.html file for those lists that don't

have one. Creating a 'test' list should create one as an example.
