[Mailman-Users] Looking for a new Mailman host

2011-12-07 Thread Rachel Mawhood

Hi list

My client is looking to move his Mailman from self-hosting to 
somewhere else.  I found this


http://wiki.list.org/display/COM/Mailman+hosting+services

but the first organisation I wrote to, taken from this list, said 
that they are probably going to cease offering and running 
this  Mailman hosting service in the near future.


So may I ask you for recommendations?  Although my client is based in 
the UK, the Mailman hosting company could be in Germany (my client 
speaks German fluently) or in the USA.


Thanks in advance.
Rachel

[Mailman-Users] One member has already lost his password [was: Passwords]

2008-09-19 Thread Rachel Mawhood

Further to this, one of the members has already lost his password ...  :-)

Will I break anything if I go into his Subscriber Options page via 
the Admin Control panel and Admin password and press the button to 
send him a reminder of his password?

Once a person is a list member, you can't send another welcome

send a password reminder to everyone on the list by first making sure
that Send monthly password reminders? on the General Options page is
set to Yes and then from a shell, running Mailman's

  cron/mailpasswds -l listname

To ensure the welcome is sent when doing mass subscribes in the future

1.  Log into Mailman control panel
2.  Scroll down the General Options to List-specific text prepended
to new-subscriber welcome message
3.  Enter any text to be sent in the message as well as the password


3. Optionally enter any additional, list specific text to be sent along
with the standard welcome message - this is a one time step.

4. Make sure that Send welcome message to newly subscribed members?
is set to Yes - this is a one time step.

5. When using Membership Management... - Mass Subscription to add
members, make sure that Send welcome messages to new subscribees? is
set to Yes. This will be the default if step 4 was done.

...

Mailman is not going to add the members password to any ordinary
message. The only messages to the user that contain the password are
the actual Mailman generated list welcome message, the password
reminders sent from cron/maillpasswds (normally run monthly on the 1st
by cron) and a user requested password reminder from the user options
login page.

Hi Mark


Actually, he should go the the options login screen at
http://www.example.com/mailman/options/list_name and enter his email
address at the top and click Remind at the bottom.


That URL is serving a 404.

address at the top and click Remind at the bottom. Then you don't have
to be involved other than giving people this instruction.

You can't do exactly what you suggest, because it will take you to the
options page at
http://www.example.com/mailman/options/list_name/user--at--example.net
and you will be already authenticated as admin, so you will be at the
options page with no Remind button.

You then have to click Log out which will take you to the options log
in page for the user (but won't log you out as admin) where you can
click Remind.

Er, user error.  :-)

[Mailman-Users] Customising the look of the subscriber login and archive pages

2008-09-11 Thread Rachel Mawhood

Hi list

I have customised the html of three pages - general list information, 
user specific options, and subscribe results - to have the same look 
and feel as the rest of the client's web site.  It appears not to be 
possible to do the same to the subscriber login and archive pages - 
is that correct?  (I need to be able to explain this, when the client 
realises this and wants to know why these pages are still in the 
default Mailman blue and white.)

Re: [Mailman-Users] Passwords

2008-09-10 Thread Rachel Mawhood
Our list welcome message was sent out to the members by the Secretary 
yesterday but he sent it as an ordinary mailman@ message and it 
didn't contain any password in it.  We'll have to send another, 
additional, message, just to get the passwords generated, but I will 
have to give the Secretary a description of how to do this.  Ie


1.  Log into Mailman control panel
2.  Scroll down the General Options to List-specific text prepended 
to new-subscriber welcome message

3.  Enter any text to be sent in the message as well as the password
4.   ?
5.   ?

I'd be grateful for help with the rest of this.  You'll remember that 
all the members were subscribed by the Secretary - they didn't 
subscribe themselves - I can't see how to create and send a welcome 
message (or a reminder message) that includes passwords (ie that 
the Mailman program recognises as THE welcome message and so will 
include the passwords).


Hope this makes sense.
Rachel

The admin and moderator passwords work (even without email address) for
accessing the archives, but each list member (including admins and
moderators if they are also members) has her/his own list password. In
your subscription scenario, the password is randomly generated. It
will be mailed to the member in the list welcome message, and unless
disabled by the list or the user, the user will receive a monthly
email reminder.

[Mailman-Users] Editing Subscriber Options page html and viewing/checking the results

2008-08-04 Thread Rachel Mawhood
This question is about editing the html on the Subscriber Options 
page.  I have begun editing this to give it the same look and feel 
as the rest of the client's web site (as I have already done for the 
public information page).  Is there somewhere, a URL where I can (as 
Admin) can view the changes I have made in my browser, please?


We haven't sent out the first welcome message yet, so I don't have 
a Mailman-generated password, only the Admin one.


Thank you.

[Mailman-Users] Passwords

2008-08-01 Thread Rachel Mawhood
We have set up Mailman as a closed, private list for an international 
society.  Members are subscribed by the Secretary, via the Admin 
control panel.  (Anyone who wants to join the list has to e-mail the 
Secretary, and only the society members are eligible to be joined to the list.)


As far as I can see, that means that members won't ever be asked for 
a password/don't need a password to send messages to the list.  But 
they still would need a password to be able to view the Archives 
which we have set to private.  When I tested accessing the 
archives, I got in with my own e-mail address and the Admin password 
(my own e-mail address is on the subscriber list and is difference 
from the list-owner e-mail address).


Obviously, we can't give 400-plus people the Admin or Moderator 
passwords so that they can view the Archives.  Is there a way of 
having a third password, which we can give to the membership (and 
reset from time to time), to enable members to view the Archives?
