FAQ
Hello,

where each user on the server gets an account and a subdomain of the server domain. So, suppose the server is called server.domain.com, a user joe gets an account "joe" and is assigned the domain joe.domain.com. Joe has a home page http://joe.domain.com and may send and receive mail on <aliases of choice>@joe.domain.com. Further, Joe may create and maintain one or more mailing lists at joe.domain.com. Ideally, joe should enter his account password at the list creation web page, in order to be able to create a list.

With the multi-domain functionality of Mailman 2.1b1, a user may moderate his lists and change the lists configurations. List creation is however a central role, so each user has to ask the server admin to create a list for him, which does not scale very much. Am I overlooking a feature, or should I create a wrapper script around the create CGI script and adjust the list creation web page to get the desired result?

Thanks very much.

Cheers,

Jan Stap

    Hello,

    I am setting up Mailman 2.1b1 at a server, where each user gets an
    account and a subdomain of the server domain. So, suppose the server
    is called server.domain.com, a user joe gets an account "joe" and is
    assigned the domain joe.domain.com. Joe has a home page
    http://joe.domain.com and may send and receive mail on
    <aliases of choice>@joe.domain.com.

    Further, Joe may create and maintain one or more mailing lists at
    joe.domain.com. Ideally, joe should enter his account password at the
    list creation web page, in order to be able to create a list.

    With the multi-domain functionality of Mailman 2.1b1, a user may
    moderate his lists and change the lists configurations. List creation
    is however a central role, so each user has to ask the server admin
    to create a list for him, which does not scale very much. Am I
    overlooking a feature, or should I create a wrapper script around

    the desired result?

    Raises an interesting point. Is it feasible for an individual user have strip
    mime where other users, as a preference, don't want it?

    I've run into the problem where some of my recipients are have their email
    blocked by employers because of this issue. Personally I come from the plain
    text school of thought.

    I don't own the server, but I have my own domain name and own IP and the usual
    100 Meg..

    Apparently Mailman is common to all users and I'm given to understand strip mime
    would affect others who didn't want it.
