Mailman equivalent of Yahoo "Special Announcements"?

Hi,

I'm about to migrate a Yahoo Groups mailing list to mailman. Yahoo 
Groups offers four delivery modes:

- individual emails
- daily digests
- no mail
- special announcements only

and I have list members set to all four of them. The first three I can 
easily deal with, but I'm not sure how to handle those set to the last.

As far as I can tell, the only difference between a Special Announcement 
and a regular post in Yahoo Groups is that a moderator can tick a 
checkbox when writing a Special Announcement on Yahoo's web UI.

I've scanned the FAQs and can't see anything obvious about this, nor can 
I see anything in the mailman web UI. I could just decide not to support 
this special announcements feature, but if I wanted to support it, what 
would be a good approach? The only thing I can think of would be to 
create a second list, mylist-announce, and subscribe everyone to that as 
well as mylist. But that makes user management tricky, requires new 
members to subscribe to both, unsubscribe from both, etc.

Have I missed something obvious? If not, is there another, simpler, 
work-around?

Thank you,

Moderated Members Email Messages Disappearing


I recently had my email lists migrated from one server to another and am working with Mailman version
2.1.18-1. Unfortunately I can't remember the version of the old Mailman before the migration.

The issue I'm having with the migrated email lists is that when a moderated member sends an email to the list,
it never makes it to the "Tend to pending moderator requests". The email just disappears into thin air as if
it never existed. If I switch the same members email account to non-moderated and they send an email to the
list the message goes through to everyone on the list just as it should.

For testing purposes I also set up a brand new email list on the new server and it works exactly as it should
without any issues. This problem seems to be with the migrated lists only. 

Any ideas as to why this could be occurring? 

Thank you!!

Regex for spam

There used to be a nice set of regex for some common spam on the old
server that we had, but that crashed and I wasn't able to recover the
settings/regex. Would somebody be willing to share their regex?

If not, I wonder if this work if I add it to header_filter_rules:

MM stats question and a moderation issue

Can MM generate some type of statistics for all the lists, e.g. number of
messages per week, month, most frequent posters, which list has most
traffic etc.?

All of our lists are setup where members can post, other (non-members) are
moderated. After updating to  2.1.18-1 and config_list -i all of the
settings the member posts to the list that they are subscribed to require
moderator approval too. Maybe a setting didn't get imported, I'm not sure.
Any ideas where/what to check? I would like members to be able to post
without approval, and non-members to go to queue for moderation.

Thank you.

Non-members keep receiving messages from the listserv

Hello,

We have an odd behavior with non-members keep getting messages from one of
our listserv. We unsubscribe these members manually and receive the message
of "Cannot unsubscribe non-member." We have the 1-click unsubscribe link
embedded to messages as well. When we click on the link, we receive error
message "Authentication failed".

We tried the recipients' names as well and nothing comes back. These
recipients reply to the original message so they are registered as members.

Anybody ran into this issue before? Is there a way for us to force Mailman
to NOT send out messages to these specific addresses?

Thank you,

Moderation notifications for the sender?

Hello,

I'm unable to figure out if there's a configuration option to inform a
sender that a moderated message of him has been approved. Is this
functionality available in Mailman 2.1?

Thank you,
  christian

iOS app for moderation open sourced

Hello,

I'm maintaining and moderating a couple of Mailman lists and when I was
looking for an easy moderation tool, I've stumpled upon 'Mailman Moderator'
for iOS [1]. Unfortunately the app isn't quite stable [2] and the original
programmer isn't working on it anymore.

After exchanging a couple of mails, he agreed to open source it here (MIT
licensed):
  https://github.com/JanMisker/MailmanModerator-iOS

Maybe somebody else will pick it up and polish it a little.

With kind regards,
  christian

[1]: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mailman-moderator/id349100180?ls=1&mt=8

[2]: It often crashes after moderation, no loading indicator, setup is
finicky (If you're not putting the base url exactly to
admindb/mailinglistname, it fails), the icon could be nicer.

Allowing user subscription for only my domain (particular domain) globaly

Dear All,

I have configured mailman for my institute. But due to some security issue
I dont like to allow users to subscribe by other
email id (like gmail , yahoo ..etc). I only want users to subscribe with my
institute email id.

I am able to do this for a particular list using privacy option---> ban
list (using regex).

But I want to do it globally for all the list. How can I do it??

Thanking you for your time and sharing.

Regards

domain name alias, two domains on one MM?

We have two domains. Is it possible to setup MM to deliver all messages
from list.old_domain.org and list.new_domain.org to one list (on
new_domain.org)?

For example, a message sent to list_name <at> list.old_domain.org would be
delivered to list_name <at> list.new_domain.org?

Thanks and sorry for all the questions! :(

I have list_lists and am trying to recreate all of these lists on the new
