FAQ
I am not as computer literate as I need to be. I am using Mailman through
Hostway and cannot figure out how to send messages to my members.

After adding my members from my previous list with another company how do I
send them monthly emails?

I am sorry if I have the wrong address, can you please help?

    You might have the wrong address. As we don't host your list, and can't really
    tell you exactly what the name of your list is.

    But if you have things setup correctly on your list, you should be able to send
    a message to (without the <>'s of course). Make sure the
    options are to your liking (i assume Hostway allows you access to the web admin
    pages). Then a simple message using your email program, from an address that is
    subscribed to the list, should suffice. Then mailman should distribute that
    message to all your list members.

    I am trying to setup a mail server running Postfix virtual domains, with
    domain and user info stored in a ldap backend. I tried to follow the
    directions in the postfix-to-mailman.py file without luck. I like the idea
    of using that script because then I don't need to worry about creating
    aliases (according to it's documentation).

    Accoring to the postfix-to-mailman documentation I need to add:
    # /etc/postfix/main.cf:
    # relay_domains = ... lists.example.com
    # transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
    # mailman_destination_recipient_limit = 1
    #
    # /etc/postfix/transport:
    # lists.example.com mailman:


    I added relay_domains, mailman_destination_recipient_limit, however for the
    transport, I edited my ldap entry for my lists.mydomain.com and changed it's
    transport to mailman: there.




    # /etc/postfix/master.cf
    # mailman unix - n n - - pipe
    # flags=FR user=mailman:mailman
    # argv=/var/mailman/postfix-to-mailman.py ${nexthop} ${mailbox}

    This I added to the master.cf.

    I created the list fine, when I go to send an email to test at list.domain I
    get this:

    I know this is sort of a Postfix/Mailman question, so I am unsure where to
    post it. Any ideas? Thanks!

    To answer my question, the directions I had for my virtual domain setup told
    me to put the following line in master.cf:
    #local_recipient_maps = $alias_maps unix:passwd.byname $virtual_mailbox_maps

    Doing various searches online and in documentation, I ran across something
    that said to change it to:
    local_recipient_maps =

    Which makes sense. The errors I was receiving were about the local user. I
    left it like this and tested sending emails to a valid user, a valid mailing
    list, an invalid user, and an invalid mailing list. Everything appears to
    be working or bouncing back correctly. Does anyone know of any side effects
    that I haven't thought of by changing this?

    Thanks,
    Bryan
