FAQ
Installed Mailman from rpm file.
I do not see guidelines on where/how to configure mm_cfg.py.
Is it to simply copy the lines needed from the Defaults.py file?

Red Hat EL4
Mailman 2.1.5
Sendmail 8.13
Python 2.3.4

Thank you

    There is nothing difficult about this. Most settings made in
    Defaults.py can be overridden in mm_cfg.py, those that cannot are
    appropriately labelled in the comments in Defaults.py.

    To override a setting, copy the relevant line from Defaults.py and
    put it in mm_cfg.py, edit the setting as desired and save the file.
    When done, restart mailman.

    Please be aware that some settings only apply at list creation and
    any lists created prior to the change in mm_cfg.py will not reflect
    those updates. In those cases you will either have to change the
    setting through the administrative interface or via a withlist script.

    I dont suppose you know of a newbie sort of pinned note or FAQ of
    setting up a mailman install from scratch, including the other items
    needed (sendmail, etc).

    I'm a relatively advanced user, but, haven't set up a webserver and
    a step by step would be awesome. Plus since i really dont
    NEEEEEEEEED to set it up from scratch, would rather not spend hours on it.

    Thanks in advance.

    You mean something like this?

    http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/mailman-install/index.html

    I found a previous version of that document to be very clear and
    helpful when I first setup Mailman on my server a couple years ago.

    BTW, that is the first result returned if you Google on "mailman
    installation manual".

    For anything you want that is different from what is defined in
    Defaults.py, then yes -- copy the affected lines to mm_cfg.py and
    then make your modifications there.

    When you upgrade, the Defaults.py file should also be updated, but
    the mm_cfg.py file should remain untouched. At least, that's the way
    the upgrade should happen, if the binary packagers do their job
    correctly.
