FAQ
Hi,

I got a strange problem with a mailman mailing list hosted at kde.org.
I'm registered at that list and also got access to the admin interface.
The problem is that if I post a message with thunderbird it gets into
the archive but isn't delivered to the subscribers of the list,
including myself. This is independent of the smtp server or account I
use for that list. If I post a message with any other mail client (gmx
web interface, kmail) everything works as expected.

Has anyone got an idea what could cause this problem? The admins of that
list don't have a clue either.

Here is the mail source code as it is sent by thunderbird:

Message-ID: <xxxxxx at gmx.de>
Date: Sat, 24 Oct 2009 15:54:01 +0200
From: Johannes Wienke <xxxxxx at gmx.de>
User-Agent: Thunderbird 2.0.0.23 (X11/20090817)
MIME-Version: 1.0
To: digiKam developers room - digiKam: Manage your photographs as a
professional with the power of open source <digikam-devel at kde.org>
Subject: Magic Numbers
X-Enigmail-Version: 0.95.6
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Hi,

<more email contents>

I already deactivated enigmail, switched to encoding us-ascii, removed
format=flowed... Nothing helped.

Thanks for any help in advance,
Johannes

    Is your Thunderbird configuration set up to send HTML only, and the
    list set to filter it?

    Sorry, the problem is already worked around ;) . The mailing list name
    includes a colon and thunderbird doesn't escape that character properly
    in the full name of the recipient. A bug report is already filed:

    No problem (except for the damned spammers who make it a reasonable
    choice to moderate lists like this one!) On behalf of the moderators,
    I'm sorry your post was delayed. I'm sure we're all glad your issue
    got localized/worked around.

    During the moderation delay, this was asked and answered at
    <https://answers.launchpad.net/mailman/+question/86976>.

    For completeness here, the underlying issue was that the display-name
    of the posting address contained a colon (:) and it was not being
    quoted by Thunderbird. Then the unquoted special in the display-name
    of the To: address was apparently causing a problem in delivery of the
    outgoing mail from Mailman.
