FAQ
When authorizing a moderated list posting is it possible to change the
date/time on the outgoing authorized list message to the time it was
approved instead of the message showing the time it was first received
by mailman?

Thanks

Paul

    I'm not aware of any ability to do this with Mailman, although there
    are aspects of the moderation interface that I don't use. You might
    be able to make changes to the message, re-submit the message as the
    originator, and then go through the moderation process again.

    Other than that, I don't see any obvious solution to this problem
    that doesn't involve writing custom code. However, you should check
    the Mailman patches page on SourceForge to see if anyone else has had
    this problem and created a suggested solution.

    See FAQ at

    for more on this.

    Correct, however mailman does currently add an X-Mailman-Approved-At:
    header to the approved post with the local time of approval. For some
    purposes at least, this might suffice (now that you know it's there).

    You could also modify the code in Mailman/ListAdmin.py that adds this
    header to mung the Date: header instead if that's really important,
    but my opinion is the poster's original date should be preserved.

    I am trying to determine why emails to lists sometimes take well in
    excess of an hour....sometimes 4....

    Is there anyway to determine where the issue lies?
