FAQ
Dear Mailman-Users and Team,

i am using mailman for a long time now and like for once to say thanks
for the good work!

A while ago we migrated the server and the lists. It comes that i
recognized a problem. A mail to the mail robot
mylist-request at mylist.domain goes straight to the moderation-queue and
the user got a bounce that the mail is held for approval. Even when the
moderator approves the mail - it is published to the list and not to the
mail-robot.

My first idea was that the migrated lists are buggy - but the same
behaviour occurs after creating a new list.

We are using virtualhosts and postfix as a mta.

Any Ideas howto debug or which steps to take to get this problem solved
are highly appreciated?

Joe

    Mail to the LIST-request address should never be hels for approval
    unless it it also sent to the LIST posting address.

    I seems that possibly you have

    recipient_delimiter = -

    in Postfix's main.cf, but that alonoe should not cause this as the
    alias for LIST-request should override the '-' recipient delimiter in
    this case, so you apparently have a problem with your Mailman aliases
    and/or virtual maps too.
