FAQ
Hi all,

Thanks for the replies so far.
From: "Shadow" <Shadow at shadowsnetwork.com>
I would say that this line shows the problem
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 <newlist at mydomain.co.uk>: invalid address
Yes, I agree.. but I'm not sure how to add a mail alias to my domain
if not through the admin console.

From: Brad Knowles <brad at shub-internet.org>
Option #2 would probably be closest, but what you'd have to do is
to set up the ten aliases needed for each list to be forwarded to a
local program on the machine. If your hosting provider doesn't
allow that, then you can't use their interface to set up aliases.
I have root access, so it should be possible, I just don't know how.

If your provider is using an MTA like postfix, with the right
options specified in the Mailman configuration file then you can
use mechanisms built into Mailman that can automatically generate
the necessary aliases for you, and postfix will automatically pick
up those changes on-the-fly. However, this also requires
modification to the postfix configuration files, and if your
provider doesn't allow that, then obviously this won't be an option
for you.
It sounds, from what you are saying, that I shouldn't need to set the
aliases up manually via the management console if Postfix is
correctly integrated. I looked through the Mailman manual, at the bit
which says Postfix Integration, but to be honest, it was all greek to
me.

Anyone care to help me through it?


Many thanks,

    Correct. What will happen is that, as new lists are created, Mailman
    will add the appropriate aliases to a second file, which postfix will
    be told how to read, and postfix will automatically pick up all
    changes. However, postfix will also be told not to otherwise try to
    manage the second aliases file in question -- Mailman will do that
    instead.

    Regretfully, that's not something I've got time to help with right now. ;(
