Is there any sort of add-on or companion program that would allow mailman
users an easy way to share files without actually mailing them? (Or,
better yet, strip them out of emails and store them for download off the
web).

Thanks,

Robert Schmid

    You should search the archives. This subject has come up several
    times before.

    The short answer is no. The long answer is quite a bit more
    complex, and for many sites it may be completely impossible to
    implement this kind of functionality, even if the feature were
    technically available within Mailman.


    If you want that sort of thing, you should use a file sharing P2P
    network, or a WebDAV server, etc....

    It looks like the closest you can get with Mailman (at this
    stage) is found in the patch at
    <http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?funcÞtail&aid�4850&group_id3&atid00103>.
