As an experiment I have set up a read-only maillist with the help of these


Seems to work fine, unfortunatily mailman is rewriting the Message-Id of the
injected emails.

>From info on the web I was led to believe this should not happen, however I
can not find a config option to overrule this behaviour.

Is it save to alter /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Message.py so that the section:

        if not self.has_key('message-id'):
            self['Message-ID'] = Utils.unique_message_id(mlist)

is changed into:

        if not self.has_key('message-id'):
            self['List-Message-ID'] = Utils.unique_message_id(mlist)

Or will this create more problems than it solves?

Mailman is running on a dedicated virtual host, Debian 7
