emails from mailman rejected with error "reject=550 Relaying denied. IP name possibly forged"

Hi,

I seem to have an issue with my mailhost server randomly rejecting emails from my mailman server whenever
they are directed externally.
My current setup is I have a mailman server running mailman and sendmail which sends all emails to my
mailhost server also running sendmail. Mailhost passes the emails through mailscanner etc. and then
relays them either externally or internally based on the target email. Internal relaying works just fine
but external relaying seems to sporadically accept some addresses for delivery and reject others. the
choice of addresses it chooses to accept or reject is different for every attempt I am so for example for my
first attempt it will forward the email to the first and 3rd external email addresses and reject to forward
to the rest and on the 2nd attempt it rejects the the 2nd and 3rd and 4th but sends the emails to the 1st and 5th
addresses just fine and so on. My mailman server's logs do n
 ot show any errors but my mailhost does.
this is the extract in question from my mailhost server mail log file:

There's the mmdsr script in the contrib directory of the distribution,
but it's more server level statistics than list level. Even if it
doesn't directly suit your purpose, it can serve as an example of how to
extract relevant information from Mailman's log files.

Mailman Stats

Hi,

Does anyone know of any good statistics scripts that either can email
detailed stats to list admins, or even offer stats from within the admin
itself?

We're using Mailman 2.1.18-1

Thanks in advance!

New install of mailman -- web links point to non-working https address

Hi,

I just installed mailman on a Centos 6.5 server with Apache, and find that
all the links on the web interface are broken because they point to an
https:// address with /cgi-bin/ in the address rather than an http://
address that works.

The Defaults.py config includes the following line:

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/mailman/'

rather than the folloowing:

DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/mailman/cgi-bin/'

which was recommended on one web tutorial I have been using for setup.

While I wouldn't mind having it work at the SSL/https address, I don't have
a working SSL certificate, won't be purchasing one, and would rather not
use a self-signed one that pops up security prompts every time someone
visits. So, I'm inclined to stick with the less secure http://

I've tried configuring it both ways, changing the DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN and
restarting mailman, but either way the site works at
http://www.mysite.com/mailman/listinfo/, but all the web links are to
https://www.mysite.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/.

I've also checked the config files "mm_cfg.py" and "mailman.conf" and don't
see anything that is pointing to an https:// address.

Best method to interface Mailman3 from custom web application

Hello,

I have built a simple mail control panel in PHP where I would like to be able to create new mailing lists,
subscribe/unsubscribe members, etc. Now I was wondering what would be the best method for my control
panel to do that? I am aware of the following methods:

- using SQL to directly speak with mailman3 database
- using the REST API

What would you recommend and are there any other alternatives?

Regards
ML

Approve/Deny moderated posts via email - my failure to understand how

I have the same question as here:

Re: [Mailman-Users] Approve/Deny moderated posts via email - my failure to
understand how
https://www.mail-archive.com/mailman-users <at> python.org/msg64564.html

After reading Mark's reply, I understand a little more, but I still do not
have success. The message I receive back is:

*Bad approval password given.  Held message is still being held.*

What is the list password that is required? I have tried the list admin
password and the list moderators password. Either those are not the
required password or I am putting them in the wrong location in the message.

Appreciate any help. Thanks.

Regards,
David

Yahoo webmail stripping out headers in digests

Another episode in the “Just Noticed” saga: In Yahoo’s webmail, they are stripping out the headers
of each email in the digests, so that you can’t even tell where a new message starts in the digest, let
alone who actually sent it.  Anyone had experience with this and know of a way to get all the individual
headers shown again?

Senders' email addresses not in archives

[Using 2.1.17]

I just realized that with the DMARC mitigation “Mung From” option turned on, the senders’ email
addresses are not showing up in the archives.  So, basically impossible to contact them unless replying to
the whole list, and/or the original sender put their address somewhere in the body of the message.  Is there
a way to have their email addresses get into the archives and still have the Mung From option turned on?

Moving Archive Lists

I had a server blow up on me. It’s dead, Jim, but I have backups of the /usr/local/mailman directory, and
I’m attempting to bring it up on a new box with a yum-supplied copy of mailman rather than the
old-fashioned hand install.

I’ve got the yum-supplied version configured, and can create new lists. But the old archive
lists, in the same directory with the same permissions, are not showing up. The yum-supplied
new mailman version is not the same as the version on the old server, and I can’t really bring
up the old server without some heroic measures.

Is there some pck database file I need to upgrade or massage to have the old lists
be recognized?

Need help with mailman bug

Hello,

I desperately need your help. We've been using Mailman newsletter lists
for over 4 years now and it always worked fantastic. This morning we've
moved to a different hosting / server and Mailman displays this bug:

---

Bug in Mailman version 2.1.18-1

We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited, but
the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

--

This message pops up in administration panel when I try to access the page
where I usually confirm to send out or delete newsletters.

Can you help me? I can't send any newsletters out.

Thanks, Iva
