I am having some trouble getting the accept_these_nonmembers filter to work
when using another list as the value (eg @test or @all). I have searched
through the mailman-user mailing list, but I can't seem to find a solution.
One of the threads mentioned something about USE_ENVELOPE_SENDER being set
in the mm_cfg.py. I am not hosting this site myself, and I only
administrative interface is through cPanel. So I am not sure how to verify
this setting without opening the file (which I don't have access to). The
sender filter appears to work when I do explicit e-mail addresses, but not
when I try to filter on other lists in the installation. I would like to use
the list option since it is more dynamic. My list architecture is
essentially like this:

-all at domain
-parents at domain
-mentors at domain
-students at domain

The all at domain list contains every e-mail from the other 3 lists. So I am
adding the all at domain mailing list to the other mailing list's
accept_these_nonmembers sender filter with the following syntax:


I have also tried:

@all at domain

Neither of them seem to work. I appreciate any advice/help anyone can offer.
