I want to whitelist an email address on all lists to bypass moderation.
The email address is not a subscriber. On google I
found accept_these_nonmembers but I do not know how to use it.
Please show me some examples how to whitelist someone(a)example.org.
Thanks in advance.
I saw in the docs:
> We have it! We just don’t have proper documentation here yet.
Could you please be more specific - can I switch Mailman 3 installation to
I want to make you aware of a potential privacy problem in Mailman's
Hyperkitty. Under the upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation
(GDPR), which will be in force as of 2018-05-25, it is illegal to
transmit data to third parties without a right to do so. Without going
into the details, the inclusion of third party services into one's
website is usually deemed such a transmission, and unless one has
explicit consent of the user (e.g., by an optional (!), unticked ticking
box) this is normally illegal (if one targets EU users).
The GDPR does not affect private and family use (Art. 2(2)(c) GDPR), but
the exact reach of that clause is yet to be determined; it certainly
does not exclude company use of Mailman.
I've found it's possible to disable the social login providers quite
easily (we had this discussion here on the mailinglist recently), but I
don't see an option to disable Gravatar. If there is one, please
enlighten me, but anyway I want to propose this as a feature request
against Hyperkitty. A GDPR-compliant implementation of Gravatar in
Mailman would look like this:
* In order to not transmit website visitor's data (IP address, browser
info, etc) to Gravatar, Hyperkitty has to request the avatar image
itself and not leave that to the user's browsers to do. In other
words, the HTTP GET request needs to come from the server running
Hyperkitty and the user's browser then just requests the avatar from
the Hyperkitty server. Most likely easiest way to do this is to
pre-download the avatar when an email is archived.
* In order to not transmit the subscribers' data (email address, allows
Gravatar to track the subscriber) to Gravatar illegally,
the retrieval of the avatar image from Gravatar has to be disabled by
default. Instead, an option needs to be added to the subscriber's
control panel which he has to actively enable in order to have his
Gravatar downloaded and thus used (privacy-by-default rule).
I'm not saying Gravatar tracks people and sells the information
gathered, though I have doubts on how Automattic makes money with the
service. I'm just outlining the legal duties under the upcoming GDPR for
service owners, which are independant of how Automattic processes the
data in this specific case.
Please don't dismiss this as some side feature not needed. The fines
that can be imposed on service owners due to violation of the GDPR are
very high (up to 20,000,000 € [that's 20 million euros, really]).

Hello all ,
I configured mailman3 following this contributer guide http://docs.mailman3.org/en/latest/devsetup.html but i'am still getting problem with the configuration of MySQL and postfix . Is this section is enough for MySQL configurations ?
url: mysql+pymysql://myuser:mypassword@mymysqlhost/mailman?charset=utf8&use_unicode=1htmlI will appreciated if there are some documents to provide to cotinue the intergration of mailman3 .
Is there any tuto for postfix config ?
Thanks in advance
I am facing errors when using import21 to import list archives. The error message is "A string literal cannot contain NUL (0x00) characters." and the import stops, thus importing only mails up to 2009. The dublicates is mails already imported when retrying. If a mail contains illegal characters I would expect disregarding the particular mail and continue, or ignoring the nul character.

I would suggest that there is something very broken here: there seems to be a problem with communication between the email system (mailman core…?) and HyperKitty.
On November 21, I sent the message below, as a part of this very thread, to Thor and cc’d the mailman 3 list. But the message never showed up in HyperKitty . I don’t know if other list members received it in their email inboxes or not.
Thor obviously received the message (it was addressed to him directly), because he referenced it in a message that is in the archives . However, I never received an email copy of his message from the list.
So, what’s going on?
What baffles me is that more people are not complaining about this. Is it just that no one has noticed? Or is it some subtle misconfiguration in my system? And in Thor’s apparently. And maybe in the lists.mailman3.org system as well.

So I installed a crontab for list and read about configuring the DB (I think
I'll use SQLite). I got to http://docs.mailman3.org/en/latest/config-web.html
. Because of the dollar sign, I assume that the commands are to be run as
list. Here's what I did:
root@lists:~# sudo list
sudo: list: command not found
root@lists:~# su list
This account is currently not available.
root@lists:~# ls /var/list
ls: cannot access '/var/list': No such file or directory
root@lists:~# locate mailman-suite_project
root@lists:~# mkdir /var/list
root@lists:~# chown list.list /var/list
root@lists:~# su list
This account is currently not available.
root@lists:~# man su
root@lists:~# su -s /bin/bash list
list@lists:~$ cd mailman-suite_project
bash: cd: mailman-suite_project: No such file or directory
list@lists:~$ mkdir mailman-suite_project
list@lists:~$ cd mailman-suite_project
list@lists:~/mailman-suite_project$ python manage.py createsuperuser
python: can't open file 'manage.py': [Errno 2] No such file or directory
list@lists:~/mailman-suite_project$ locate manage.py
Which manage.py should I use?

Using Docker. Suppose I've overcome
https://gitlab.com/mailman/mailman/issues/359 and I can make Mailman use
the templates/site/no directory for my customized templates. Yes, it seems
to be working, no hickups when national characters are used in the
the welcome message still says "Welcome to the "listname" mailing list" in
English. Is it possible to change that?
Hi everyone :),
This is my first post in this group, so let me thank all of the developers
for incredible work with Mailman3. Special congratulations goes to new
project leader, Abhilash :)
I've been using Mailman2 from over 15 years, and recently decided that it
is time to upgrade. For several days I'm playing with all of the components
of the system. Currently everything looks to be working nicely :)
Mailman-core, Mailman-suite (Postorius, Hyperkitty) installed directly, not
using docker containers.
The last step was integration with MTA. I've configured Postfix and
Mailman-core according to:
But messages send to the list address are not delivered to the list :( I've
started to investigate whats happening and realize that Postfix can not
connect to mailman using LMTP. It seems that mailman is not listening on
Nov 24 13:12:31 lists postfix/lmtp: connect to
127.0.0.1[127.0.0.1]:8024: Connection refused
I've checked log files, but haven't realize anything unusual . Any ideas
where I could try to find cause of the problem ?
