I've been using Mailman for a long time for several small lists that I
maintain. There are two configuration issues that I still do not
understand. First, messages sent to participants have the footer as an
attachment. The only way I could get rid of the attachment was to delete
the footer text. The messages on this list have the footer, and it is
not showing up as an attachment, so I am doing something wrong.
See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/84A9
The footers are not (usually) separate MIME parts on this list because
people tend to post plain text, and this list uses Mailman's content
filtering to remove non plain text parts from posts so the footers can
be added to the simple plain text message body.
The other question has to do with bounce processing. When I load a new
list of email addresses, how can I check for bad ones other than wait
until there are enough bounces within a period of time to unsubscribe?
It would be very helpful to be able to designate an email address to
which ALL bounces are sent. Can that be done?
When you "load a new list of email addresses", invite the list rather
than subscribing it. Problem solved.
There already is an address to which all bounces are sent. It is
LISTNAME-bounces at ... If you have control over the MTA that delivers
this mail, you can deliver it anywhere you want. You can also set the
bounce processing threshold score to 1 to disable delivery and notify
the admin upon the first bounce.
