Assuming MUA means a mail application. And if that mail application has no reply list function then the setting doesn't work.
MUA means Mail User Agent which is another name for mail application, YES.
Uh-oh: I AM LOST AGAIN. (will all caps give me a larger font?)
It is the presence of the List-Post: header in the message that allows the MUA to offer/process the "reply-list" function.
Ok, I asked how to make it ANNOUNCE ONLY and you said to use "allow_list_posts is False" which is the same as "Include the list post header".
Not exactly. You asked what settings were different between discussion style and announce only style. What I answered was that the only setting that differed as set by the style was what Postorius calls "Include the list post header".
What I didn't say explicitly was that this is not sufficient to prevent posting to the list.
So does this mean that for a subset of users I cannot make it ANNOUNCE ONLY? And is it some other setting (send to moderator) that prevents it from being a DISCUSSION list?
What exactly do you want? You found some info on configuring an announce only list and I referred you to a FAQ on that subject. Both of these do not directly address Mailman 3, but they do give useful information.
I am going to stop guessing at what you want to accomplish, so tell me what you want to happen when someone sends a post to the list either from HyperKitty or by email. What should happen to the message? What if anything should be sent to the user? Should this behavior be the same for all users or just a subset. If a subset, how do you identify that subset and what should happen when others attempt to post?
