When receiving a mail from Mailman 3, the From: User name is the description of the list, like From: Long desription of the list for all members of certain project <project(a)lists.example.com>.
Starting to get old, I recall something about a discussion we once had on http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/, but I don't recall the reason for this and I can't find the discussion, so it might be something I dreamed.
What was the reason for implementing this? And could it be a selectable choise in Mailman 3?
I send a message to the list with some national characters (æøå ÆØÅ), and
everything shows up fine. Then I send the same message using pseudo-header
approved: with the list password. This messes up the character encoding, so
that instead I get (=C3=A6=C3=B8=C3=A5 =C3= =86=C3=98=C3=85)
I experience the problem when I send or receive with Gmail web client,
however, when using the Claws-mail (an ordinary mail client) to pick up
from my gmail account, the contents is shown correctly.
As a web hosting provider I have searched and searched for a way to limit the total size of messages posted to all lists. We have moderators who just can't get it through their heads to limit the size of attachments. One list today distributed a 6 mb pdf to over 700 recipients. I have found information on creating a custom handler and some old and brief logic on limiting max_message_size from Mr. Sapiro.
Would anyone who has developed a custom handler to reject messages based on total size, mind sharing the full file? If so, could you also state where the handler was positioned in the chain of handlers.
Thank you for your time.
I have a problem with my Mailman 3-setup. The symptom is that postfix
rejects non-existing addresses for my list domains with
<adr(a)example.com>: mail for example.com loops back to myself
What I guess happens happens is that postfix for some reason accepts
the mail as it is for a relay domain and finds that it is not
deliverable locally as the address does not exist locally and then
tries to relay it on to the appropriate MX server, which is itself and
then fails and generates a bounce message.
This is a bit annoying as I have set up postfix to only accept valid
addresses. I have set the transport_maps, local_recipient_maps and
relay_domains to the files generated by MM3. I run an older version of
MM3 (3.0) but prefer to fix this without upgrading as upgrading is a
relatively big undertaking.
This is mostly a backscatter problem for spam I guess.
Any ideas of very simple and easy to forget things that I've probably missed?
we've migrated a list from another domain and would like to keep the
archives. Hyperkitty doesn't recognize the emails in the mbox archive
during import due to the other domain name.
As a workaround we thought of creating a placeholder list with the
original and than import the mbox. But actually I don't like to have
dysfunctional lists in the domain list. Is it possible to set domains
Or is there a switch to import a list from another domain?
Hi to all,
even after a lot of google search I could not find a way to disable the
Confirmation Mails like

Is there a way to do this? I have users who would be irritated and I
dont want them to recieve this
it seems like the way mailman3 processes header filters is a bit
With a header filter (HeaderMatch) like the following:
header => from
pattern => .*(a)freesources.org
chain => accept
I expect mails from *(a)freesources.org to be accepted regardless of the
default message acceptance settings.
Apparently, that's not the case. If the default message acceptance
setting for members is set to "reject", then mails from
*(a)freesources.org get rejected even though the header filter says
"accept". In other words, the default message acceptance action seems to
overrule any header filters.
Is this expected behaviour?
Our group of 30 plus people have the perennial problem in MM II of not checking previous messages before replying.
A second problem is starting a new topic rather than responding to a message in the same topic, which makes searching even harder.
I previously suggested a forum or something like Stack or Flock. People had no interest in a Word Press forum yet moan about the inefficiency of a list, also it is something new and involves leaving email. Stack and Flock make it hard to require all to be a member of all topics in their free versions.
Then it occurred to me, the threaded view in Mailman III looks good and could help us nudge people back on topic.
Am I being too optimistic.
It is a closed group only open to people we approve.
I would like to migrate to MM III but lack the technical skills to fo this? Anyone who could do this for a fee?
We probably do not need to bring in the old topics. (I guess there us no way like a forum to limit the topics but at least we could keep things on track).
