Hi all,

Got an outstanding issue with Mailman 2.1.9 included with Apple
Leopard server 10.5.6: suddenly the subscribe confirmation messages
never send out anymore.

Here is a little cut & paste out of the error log:
Mar 23 22:46:23 2009 admin(6944): /usr/share/mailman/Mailman/
MailList.py:907: DeprecationWarning: raising a string exception is
deprecated
raise Errors.MMSubscribeNeedsConfirmation
Mar 24 15:49:45 2009 admin(4503): /usr/share/mailman/Mailman/
MailList.py:907: DeprecationWarning: raising a string exception is
deprecated
raise Errors.MMSubscribeNeedsConfirmation

Here is the qrunner log:
Mar 23 22:59:44 2009 (192) OutgoingRunner qrunner started.
Mar 23 22:59:44 2009 (190) IncomingRunner qrunner started.

Here is the subscribe log:
Mar 23 16:54:51 2009 (5065) school1_parents: pending Hung Phan <phanh at canbysd.org

>
Mar 24 15:49:45 2009 (4503) school4_parents: pending Hung Phan <phanh at canby.org

Here is a portion of vette log:
Mar 23 16:52:28 2009 (5008) school1: held subscription request from phanh at canbysd.org
Mar 23 17:00:26 2009 (5197) school3: held subscription request from phanh at canbysd.org

Seems like everything is posted at the correct log but no confirmation
message is sent out. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    Did you just upgrade Python to 2.6.x? If you're going to use Python
    2.6.x, you need Mailman 2.1.12.

    See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/pYA9>.

    Python version is 2.5.
    Weird thing is that unsubscribe message send out but not the confirm
    message. The lists are set to confirm.

    Thanks,

    And did that change recently?

    And did you read the FAQ that I referenced that says Mailman 2.1.9
    doesn't work with Python 2.5 either (I don't recall exactly what the
    issues are, but the deprecation warning on string exceptions is one of
    them).

    Weird thing is that unsubscribe message send out but not the confirm
    message. The lists are set to confirm.

    Is there anything in Mailman's error log besides the deprecation
    warnings you posted earlier?

    What's in Mailman's smtp and smtp-failure logs with timestamps near
    those of the 'pending' messages from the subscribe log?
