FAQ
Can I somehow set my mailing list to accept messages where the mailing
list is addressed as the "To:" field, but have it reject posts where the
mailing list is addressed in someone's "cc:" or "bcc:" field?

I couldn't find anything in the archives or documentation about this.

Thanks

    Yes and no.

    If a list is included in the BCC: field and the
    require_explicit_destination setting is on, this will work for BCC:
    That setting is located on the Privacy Options->Recipient Filters page.

    It will not work for CC: as mailman basically treats the TO: and CC:
    fields as essentially the same thing (which is in accord with the
    applicable RFCs). In order for this behavior to be different you will
    either have to modify mailman code, use a custom handler in the
    incoming stream or filter such messages at the incoming queue of your MTA.
