how to subscribe users of one list to another when they post

Hi Mark, Barry and others!

Could you please advice whether it's possible to automate
situation when users of particular list post to some sibling list
which they are not member of:
- to invite them
- to subscribe them silently
- to subscribe them with moderator approve

Is it possible with 2.x/3.x version?

Danil

Basic requirements for bounce processing

I'm looking for the high level view on what is
needed for bounce processing to be available.

I'm running mailman 2.1.12-18 from Redhat 6.

Under the Bounce processing heading, we have Yes.
MTA is Postfix.

Now what happens?  I check an email from the list
and I don't see a "-bounces" anywhere in the headers.
Everything is from "-owner".  Am I missing a setting?

Admin Requests Not Working

I'm on to the next layer of the onion for my migration. Now I have
admin/moderator requests to handle. When I click the appropriate radio
buttons and click the submit button, nothing happens. The page refreshes
but the requests remain. TIA.

An oldie but a goodie: Operation not permitted

Hi all,

I'm running on FreeBSD:
FreeBSD home.parts-unknown.org 10.1-STABLE FreeBSD 10.1-STABLE #0 r277524: Thu Jan 22 00:14:29 PST
2015     root <at> home.parts-unknown.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

All of a sudden mailman isn't starting:

home# service mailman start                            
No problems found
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 556, in <module>
    main()
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 391, in main
    lock = acquire_lock(force)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 215, in acquire_lock
    lock = acquire_lock_1(force)
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 203, in

    if not force or qrunner_state():
  File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 187, in qrunner_state
    os.kill(pid, 0)
OSError: [Errno 1] Operation not permitted

I ran bin/check_perms ; it found no problems. I ran bin/check_db ; it
found nothing to do.

What now?

Archiving problems

Hi folks,

I recently discovered that all my lists stopped archiving back in 
October.  I have no clear idea as to what caused that, but I suspect 
that it may have occurred as part of some hardware and software upgrades 
I did around that time.

I'm still stuck back at Mailman 2.1.13 because the port system I use 
hasn't updated in ages and I haven't had time to tackle it myself.

I was able to bring most of the archives up to date manually, but one 
fairly active one with public archives is still only showing through 
October 2014.   When I run that manually it shows that it's processing 
posts beyond the last one seen in the web-visible archives and updates 
the index for 1st quarter 2015, but still no visibility and the files in 
archive/public aren't updated.  The files in archive/private *are* 
updated...

How do I make the public archives reflect what's in private?

Thanks.

Mobing A List To A Ne Server Under The Same Doamin Name

I am having to manually migrate some domains/web site from one server to another, both in a cPanel
environment.  The resident backup restore functionality cannot be used for these domains.  Can I move the
associated mailman lists by simply copying over the /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists files
and ensuring that the permissions and ownership are set correctly?

Subscriber's reply to my message gets sent to the list: how to prevent it

Hi

I have a list and recently a subscriber wrote to the list address and asked t be taken off. In face several did.
So I sent an email
explaining the best way. Writing from my personal address at the same domain as the list, I said,

 "The best way to be removed from the list would be to follow the instructions at the bottom of the newsletter. 
If you have trouble, please let me know and I will be glad to assist you. However, it will take several days as
i am now travelling. Follow the directions at the bottom of the screen.Again, if this does not work for you,
I will be glad to assist you.”

As far as I recall I cc’d myself at my mac address. She responded to the same list address saying “thank
you” and somehow THAT MESSAGE got sent out to everyone.

Not a big problem, but am trying to figure out how it happened,

Some of my settings are:  

--new members moderated

--hold when a moderated members posts

How is this possible that the subscriber’s email made it through to the list?   I want to make sure this does
not happen again.

Thank you very much!

Help Request Returning Nothing

I've recently muddled through a migration to a new server and struggled
with setting up a custom URL for templates. However, in trying to set up
the URL on a previously working "help.txt", I've apparently fouled
something up. I now get the correct URL but little else. A help request
is returning the following:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The results of your email command are provided below. Attached is your
original message.

- Results:
    Ignoring non-text/plain MIME parts
    You can access your personal options via the following url:
    https://myhost.mydomain.com/mailman/options/cufsalumni/dap1%40bellsouth.net

    help
    Help
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In addition there is an attachment that is simply my original help request email. Can someone explain what
is doing on? TIA.

listinfo_url Wrong

How is listinfo_url used in templates set? I am guessing I have
something configured wrong somewhere because the templates where that is
used has just the host name not the FQDN. Thanks.

Changing values at header/footer

Hello everibody,
This is my first list that I am setting and I wonder if I could add to my footer/header a small line like for example:
Message Ref.: #123456789   Date: 22/01/2015 17:10
I was searching to get a list of command in Python, like the original footer, but no good results:
%(real_name)s mailing
list%(real_name)s <at> %(host_name)s%(web_page_url)slistinfo%(cgiext)s/%(_internal_name)s Thanks
a lot from Argentina!Best regards,Edgardo
