Somebody suggested me ask the mailman folks this question.
My google official account username is <blah at domain.com> but I have
verified and activated another email address "sample at domain2.com" . I
am able to originate email with "sample at domain2.com" in the "from" email
but mailman still rejects the message claiming "Sorry, only subscribers
Is the address sample at domain2.com a member of the list?
Mailman thinks I am not a member of the list and is
considering me "blah at domain.com" even though I can see in the bounce
that "sample at domain2.com" is in the From portion of the header.
I do not understand the above. Which of these addresses are members of
the list. Mailman only goes by the exact email address. E.g. even if
userx at example.com is a list member, userx at mail.example.com is not.
SMTP header of the bounce claims "Received-SPF: pass", "Return-Path:
<blah at domain.com>", and "Sender: <blah at domain.com>"
When I send the same mail through a domain I administer the email
"sample at domain2.com" is properly identified.
Is there anything more I can configure to appease mailman's legitimacy
As I said, I can't diagnose the issue without knowing what addresses
are list members. The following is in Defaults.py
# Membership tests for posting purposes are usually performed by
looking at a
# set of headers, passing the test if any of their values match a
# the list. Headers are checked in the order given in this variable.
# value None means use the From_ (envelope sender) header. Field names
# case insensitive.
SENDER_HEADERS = ('from', None, 'reply-to', 'sender')
If this is unchanged in mm_cfg.py, a post will be considered to be from
a list member if any of From:, the envelope sender (Return-Path:),
Reply-To: or Sender: (in that order) contain an exact member address.
