FAQ
Hi there! I was hoping to get some help from another user who may have
run into this problem. I can't find anything about it in the FAQ's. I am
trying to post to my mailing list but I receive the following:

You are not allowed to post to this mailing list, and your message has
been automatically rejected. If you think that your messages are
being rejected in error, contact the mailing list owner at
Members-owner at oceanstatepmi.org.

I have been posting right along, but someone did re-configure my Outlook
email recently. I'm not sure if that contributes to the problem. Anyhow,
I can't find the option that tells me where I can change WHO can post to
the list. I had it set up so no-one could send to the list but me -
since it was a notification and reminder service and not a moderated
list. I have dug through all those configuration pages and I'll be
darned if I can find anything besides the owner and moderator areas. I
have my email address in both of those - but still get the message above
emailed to me after trying to post.

Here's a link to my archives:
http://mail.oceanstatepmi.org/mailman/private/members_oceanstatepmi.org/

The version I'm using is: 2.1.5
Help?!

    April,


    To change who can post, go to your membership list in the admin page. The column labelled 'mod', to
    the right of the address has a check mark if the address can't post.

    Check to see if your Outlook mail settings are different than your subscribed address. The reply
    that you sent indicates that either your subscribed address is different than your sending address.
    Check the Privacy Settings for Sending. Look to see how the list is supposed to behave for
    moderated members and/or non-subscriber. It sounds like you are being considered a non-subscriber
    and that could be because you are subscribed at an address that is different than the one you are
    sending from.

    Hi again,
    The link to edit mailman list subscribers is:

    http://yourserver.com/mailman/admin/yourlistname/members

    Of course, substitute the servername & listname for whatever
    your list is called. Hope this helps.

    There's your problem. Either the process is not being run with
    the correct userid/group that is allowed to write to this directory
    and file, or the ownership/group permissions on the directory or file
    are incorrect.

    It's up to the person who creates the RPM to make sure that it
    works correctly on your system. You need to contact them for further
    assistance with the RPM version.

    If you want to install from the source we provide (see

    - After the intallation, with --with-mail-gid=root as say beforem I
    don't access to the web interface because the user who runs apache
    are apache, and it tell me:

    Mailman CGI error!!!
    The Mailman CGI wrapper encountered a fatal error. This entry is being
    stored in your syslog:
    Group mismatch error. Mailman expected the CGI
    wrapper script to be executed as group "nobody", but
    the system's web server executed the CGI script as
    group "apache". Try tweaking the web server to run the
    script as group "nobody", or re-run configure,
    providing the command line option `--with-cgi-gid=apache'.
    Mailman is being pretty obvious here with the error messages.
    You say that you specified "--with-mail-gid=root" when you built
    Mailman. That may be required in order to have appropriate
    user/group permissions to the log files, etc.... However, the error
    message is saying that you also need "--with-cgi-gid=apache" in order
    to make the web interface part of Mailman work with Apache.
