I have been plowing through the Mailman documentation and trying some
things on a test system and need lots of help.
First my system is Fedora 12 with Postfix and an SQL database for the
users, virtual domains, forwarders, and transport. See:
So I installed Mailman, ran the script to set its password, then the
modified the config file to support virtual host
(http:/mailman.domain.com/mailman) and postfix. After this, I could run
the script that created the mailman list that then prints a bunch of
entries to add to /etc/aliases. I am having major problems with these
aliases. I don't know how to put commands in the SQL database (perhaps
it SHOULD work with the forwarder table) and the SQL virtual domain
setup is NOT working with what Mailman is expecting and these aliases
commands. So that is one problem I am not figuring out.
But I went and created a second list via the http://...../mailman/create
URL. Where is the information about this list kept? I can't find it.
No changes were made to /etc/aliases for this new list. Perhaps if I
saw what a web created list needed I might figure out a way to get
I have asked over on the postfix list if anyone there is running Postfix
with SQL and mailman and so far only one person has piped up siging the
praises of Postfix with the SQL backend, but nothing on Mailman. So I
need a bit of help here...
