AOL screening Reply-To header thru DMARC ?

I'm setting up a new Mailman server to replace an elderly MajorDomo
that isn't DMARC-compatible.

I set up the list to use the list's address as the From address and to
put the sender's address in Reply-To:.  I started playing around with a
test list - in no time at all, AOL began bouncing all my mail.

After researching AOL's error messages, it appeared that my server
had been temporarily blacklisted.  That went away but then I noticed
this error:

   Oct 18 01:01:26 vc18 postfix/smtp[25098]: C77D416B4D9: host mailin-01.mx.aol.com[152.163.0.67]
said: 421 4.2.1 :  (RLY:SN) http://postmaster.info.aol.com/errors/421rlysn.html (in reply to end of
DATA command)

According to that URL on AOL's site, either my From or Reply-To is using an
address in violation of DMARC.  I had already checked the From address so
it was apparent the Reply-To was at fault.  Aalthough the mail was not
being rejected, given AOL's hair-trigger sensors I figured it would be
better to do it their way.   Changing the  Reply-To: to the list's address
got rid of the 421 error.

Has anyone else run into this?  I hate doing this, since now we're going
to see people sending what they think are private messages to the entire
list.

I see from the docs that Mailman can do different behavior on the From:
address depending on whether it is in a DMARC-protected domain - are there
any plans to do the same for the Reply-To?  Looks to me like it will be
necessary given what AOL is doing.

One List Not Receiving Mail

Good Afternoon,

I am new to the Mailman application, but was tasked to migrate the application (data) to a new server. I
completed the task and am now running Mailman version 2.14. Everything seems to be working fine, except
for one LIST. I thought it was due to the migration, but the user reported that the issue has been ongoing for
a few months. Anytime the user sends an email to the list, the email flows correctly all the way to the
POSTFIX on the mailman server. From the logs I see that Postfix executes (delivered to command:
/usr/lib/mailman/mailman listname). That is where any logs for that LIST stops. I check the archives and
pending moderator requests, and nothing is in there. Once again, this is just for one list. All the other
lists work fine.

I have tried to send myself and have verified the person is set to send mail. Everything dies after that
Postfix command. Can someone please help or advise on how to fix/find the issue? Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
René Tapia

Digest feature for pending moderator requests

I have two lists - ffml and ffml-admins - which I've noticed a slight
behavior difference.  On ffml-admins, I get a message once per day that
tells me that I have n>0 emails pending, and no emails on a per-email
received basis.  With ffml, however, every time a pending message is
held, the moderator team and I get an email for each - and there
hasn't been enough time at this point for the digest message. I just
turned this on, and it's going to get annoying really quick, as these
messages are almost invariably the result of spam*.

Long and short, ranting aside, how do I set up mailman so I don't get
an email for each of the held messages, instead getting that sort of
"digest" message?  I've combed through the web ui, but I can't seem to
find a relevant feature....

-Dennis

* I turned this feature on due to a sharp uptick in spam on this server
- my hope is to basically trap these for reporting to Spamcop, and to
reduce backscatter to nil.  At this point, at the current default
setting, backscatter is getting up to about two dozen per day trying to
get to servers that are refusing connection, and I can only imagine how
many are actually getting through.

Mac, me, icloud. Many domains one user.

Long time lurker, first time poster.

I have subscribers who subscribed with user <at> mac.com and then they try to post from user <at> me.com or
user <at> icloud.com and their mail bounces off 
course since only subscribers can post.

I know how to add addresses with the "accept_these_nonmembers Option" but I have quite a few .mac users and
I'm wondering if there is a way to 
treat
mac.com, me.com & icloud.com as interchangeable.

Any way to add sender email address to subject line or body of email?

Due to many sites now blocking emails that do not come from the defined
list of sending hosts, I've changed the lists I manage to replace the
"From:" header with the list address using "anonymous_list". This works
great for delivery but many people don't bother to sign their emails and
we end up not knowing who is posting. It would be great if I could put
the sender email address in the subject line or as a first line in the
body of each posting. Is there a way to do either one of these things?

that's good to know. however, in my case, this would not have been possible.

Server config problems

Hello:

I am a longtime Mailman list owner/moderator, and I just moved all my 
web sites and accompanying lists to InMotion, which makes Mailman 
available via cPanel on VPS and dedicated accounts.  InMotion supports 
Mailman pretty poorly, a fact I had forgotten, having left them back in 
2006.

Because of what I figure is a server misconfiguration or a cron problem, 
I don't receive moderator notifications from any of my lists.  I do not 
have the time or ability to track down the problem myself, and 
InMotion's people have no experience or training with Mailman.  (In 
fact, I remembered InMotion's poor Mailman support while searching the 
archives of this very list and running across a post I made in 2006 
about this very same problem.)

Is there anyone on this list who has the expertise and willingness to 
work with InMotion to troubleshoot and fix this problem for a reasonable 
fee to be negotiated?  It may even be fixable using the SSH access on my 
account.

Profuse apologies if this is an inappropriate post.  I have also checked 
the consultants page on the Mailman web site and contacted one of those 
companies, but I don't know whether they mostly do hosting.  I really 
don't want to move my sites and lists again, having just gotten 
everything in one place.

Thanks,

Tracey

Email formatting


I've noticed that when I send an email through the mailing list that a lot of formatting is stripped away.
Particularly bothersome is lost line or paragraph breaks. As an example, in an original email there may be
a space between paragraphs, but when the email gets delivered through mailman those line breaks may be
removed and there is no space between paragraphs at all. Even worse line/paragraph breaks may be removed
altogether and everything runs on a continuous line with only word wrap occurring. 
Any thoughts on why this happens?

mail issue to moderator

Hi all,
our production mailman suddenly stopped sending mail to moderator for required list approvals and 
subscription approvals.
Ex: when someone scribe to mailing list we have configured to receive the mail to
"moderator/administrator" for approval 
but in our case administrator/moderator not getting mails on their mail box. each time we need to logon to
list and see for the pending approval or subscriptions  which is not practical.
We are sing "postfix." as mail agent for mailman. Below are the error messages.

HTML content from GMX gets scrubbed in archive

Dear all,

I have an issue with my mailman/pipermail setup.

the thing is that mails, which were sent to the list as HTML and through
the GMX web interface, do not get displayed properly in my archive.
this is how it looks: http://i.imgur.com/H8vvUfV.png

even though the screenshot is in german language you should recognize, that
the html content gets scrubbed. obviously, the whole content of the mail
gets scrubbed, since it's written in html. so, the archive does only show a
link to the scrubbed html-content which then shows the mail-content.

however, i would like to display the html text directly in the archive
without having to click on the "scrubbed attachment" link.

i already changed "ARCHIVE_HTML_SANITIZER = 3", which had only one effect:
the html still gets scrubbed to an attachment. when i click on the link to
the attachment in the archive, I see the rendered html content. before set
ARCHIVE_HTML_SANITIZER to 3, I saw the html source of the mail when
clicking on the attachment.

one further information: filtering is disabled on the list.

any help is appreciated. the simple question is: how can html-mails be
properly displayed in the pipermail-archive without any scrubbing..?

thanks.
