FAQ
Hi Guys is there a way to move discarded emails to another list? I have been asked if we can retain the email's that are discarded due to not having perms to send to the list be moved to another list for archiving purposes.

    Uh...

    I don't know of any mechanism in Mailman, or SMTP for that matter, that
    will provide what you are wanting. The closest that I can think of is
    using something like a Procmail recipe that will attempt to deliver a
    message in to Mailman and then attempt to deliver the message to your
    ""archive if it fails to deliver the message to Mailman.

    I can't think of any thing else that will attempt to deliver to one
    location and then fall back to another if the first fails. Well, having
    multiple MX records will do this, but the problem is the first will
    accept the message and then fail, rather than failing the SMTP delivery
    period. I suppose someone could wright an SMTP interface in to Mailman,
    but that is way more trouble than Procmail.

    How about forward the mails discarded/rejected to admins option, and
    thence using procmail/exim sieve/whatever to handle those mails to a new
    mbox/mdir/$boss.

    (for good measure, i'd let spamassassin's reject bin end up there too,
    until i had time to "fix the bug")

    Absolutely futile exercise, in my view, though.

    There is a list setting forward_auto_discards that can forward all
    automatically discarded non-member posts to the list owner.

    If discarding from the admindb web interface, there are options to
    forward the message and/or preserve it (it is preserved in a 'spam'
    queue).

    These are all you have without modifying code.
