Killing a message in the delivery queue

Hi,

I made a blooper and accepted a nasty message instead of deleting it
when moderating.

I've managed to stop Mailman before the mail  started to go out.  It is
somewhere in the Mailman Queue with other "good" messages.

How do I kill it from the queue?

Many thanks

Nico

2 Questions regarding Archiving

Hi list,

i have to questions regarding Mailman´s Archive.

1) Is there a possibiliy to "customize" the design of Mailman´s Archive-Page ? 

2) According to Mailman´s Documentation e-Mails are not archived if they have an "X-Archive:
No"-Header. Can this function be disabled ? What if we want to archive all Mails, regardless of the value of
X-Archive ?

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Sascha

About line 35 of Handlers/ToArchive.py, we find:

if msg.has_key('x-no-archive') or msg.get('x-archive', '').lower() == 'no':
    return

Commenting out these two lines will get what you want.

If it is still in Mailman, there will be one or more queue entries
associated with it. The queues are the various subdirectories in
Mailman's qfiles/ directory. Depending on how much processing was
done, the message bay be in the qfiles/in/ queue or the qfiles/out/
queue. It may or may not also be in the qfiles/archive/ queue.

You need to look at the individual .pck file entries in the queues with
bin/show_qfiles or bin/dumpdb and identify the one(s) that contain
this message. Then you can just delete the unwanted file(s).

Monthly Reminders

I first installed Mailman with the name XXXXX <at> cohousing-corvallis.com.  I
have since killed that list and have another one active with a different
domain name.  I cancelled the list through the Cpanel on my hosting
service.  But, the three people who were on this list when it was
cancelled are getting monthly reminders.  The new maillist does not send
monthly reminders since I have turned off this option.  So, how do I get
rid of this artifact and kill these reminders from a list that no longer
exists?

Clearly the list exists or people wouldn't be getting reminders for it.
Have you tried going to
<http://www.cohousing-corvallis.com/mailman/admin/XXXXX_cohousing-corvallis.com>?

I bet you can go there and log in and delete the members. Also, the
members could follow the link in their reminders, log in and
unsubscribe themselves.

As to why the list hasn't been deleted when you think it has or how to
really delete it, these are cPanel questions. See
<http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq06.011.htp>.

double attachments

Back in December, there was a thread on duplicated jpeg images in posts
from Mailman
<http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2006-December/054870.html>.

I worked with the OP off line, and I diagnosed the problem as being a
cPanel problem. cPanel Mailman 2.1.9-cp1 has some modification to add
the msg_footer to a text/html part. The affected posts had
multipart/related parts which had a text/html part referencing one or
more image/jpeg parts.

Apparently, cPanel's modification to insert msg_footer in the text/html
part was also adding duplicate references to the images and also
duplicating the image/jpeg parts. I posted this issue to a cPanel
forum <http://forums.cpanel.net/search.php?searchid=1860274> in
December, but there have been no replies.

My suggested avoidance, since the affected list is an announce list, is
to remove msg_footer from the list and add it instead as a signature
to the post. It was not until yesterday that this was tested and
proved viable, but since it did work, I am posting this 'closure'

Mailman installation on Solaris 10 crashes

A couple of weeks ago there were two or three posts about Mailman
crashing on install of the Japanese and Korean Codecs.  I swapped some
offlist E-mails with Barry Sapiro and told him that I would
investigate this for him when I did a fresh install of Solaris 10 
on a box to be used as a Mailman mail server.

Accordingly, this afternoon I did a default Jumpstart install of 
the Solaris 10 "entire package" on an Ultra 60 and added a gcc 3.3
development system from a Solaris Software Companion disk.  One 
additional item was to set the install default path to pick up 
needed directories that are not included in the Solaris base install.

PATH=$PATH:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/local/bin:/opt/sfw/bin

The last three directories in that order are significant.  

I did a build and install of Python 2.5 in /usr/local, and configured
Mailman with the needed mail and cgi gid statments, then ran a make.

Make install failed.  The key section in the installation output is
this:

    (cd ./$p ; umask 02 ; PYTHONPATH=/usr/local/mailman/pythonlib
/usr/sfw/bin/p
ython setup.py --quiet install --install-lib
/usr/local/mailman/pythonlib  --ins
tall-purelib /usr/local/mailman/pythonlib  --install-data
/usr/local/mailman/pyt
honlib); \
done
