Hi, I'm new to the list, though I undoubtedly know some of you from other
list management lists. I am in the process of migrating my mailing lists
from majordomo on a friend's server to mailman at sonic.net.
I have many questions which I haven't been able to answer by reading the
FAQ's. Some are specific to Sonic most likely and I post those to the
Sonic usenet group for mailman, though it's a slow group.
My first question is about how to view my subscriber list. It's not a
problem for the small lists. I simply go to that page in the interface and
there everyone is.
Unfortunately, once membership hits a certain level, mailman won't provide
the full list. Now I have to look by letter. So instead of viewing my
subscriber list in one fail swoop, I need to do it 26 times.
The FAQ taught me about the roster page, which is cool, but it just gives
the list of names, divided by regular and digest. I can't do things like
page down to see who to unmoderate. See:
Is there a way to see the entire membership list with all the interactive
boxes I get as an admin?
Is this a setting on the ISP's end? Can they make the option available?
or at least raise the threshhold for putting the list into letter-only
Then there is a security question. When I got the roster (requiring no
password), each name on the list was clickable. When I clicked on a name,
it took me to the subscription page for that person. Without requiring a
password. When I did it for my own name I figured that my password was
just in a cookie. But it works for a random name too.
Of course, the roster page should be passworded too...is it really possible
for anyone to view my subscriber list? Can those of you who don't have a
Sonic IP view it?
The addresses may be changed so they're harder for spammers to harvest but
they're full addresses that can easily be changed to proper emails. Like
with a lot of lists, there are problems with small-time spammers wanting
access to subscribers but we also have troublemakers. I don't want my
subscribers' email addresses visible to anyone but me. And the
subscription settings shouldn't be accessible to just anyone either.
Are there settings on my end that I need to re-do? Are there settings on
