[Mailman-Users] Simple, yet over my head multiple domain problem

2010-04-28 Thread Ty Nelson
Greetings Geniuses...

I have mailman 2.1.11 running with postfix, and it's absolutely great.  I
love it.  The problem is...I'm going to be honest when I say I'm definitely
below average intelligence with this sort of thing.
I don't know how to make it so I can have more than one domain on my mailman
install.  I have all the domains pointing to the correct IP address, so the
interface works on each domain.  I can change the hostname in my
main.cffile to whatever domain I want to work at that instant, and it
works-but I
don't know how I can have 5 domains that work at the same time.  I can only
get them to work one at a time.
I understand that these files must be changed:
main.cf
mm_cfg.py
(something involving virtual hosts)

But I've looked everywhere on the internet and I can't find a step by step
guide for (idiots) if you will on what I need to do to what file word for
word.

Basically,
how can I make:
domain1.info
domain2.info
domain3.info
domain4.info
domain5.info

all work at the same time.

I know this forum is for advanced issues in general, been on it for quite
sometime.  So I apologize for filling your inbox with such a silly question.

I am so grateful for your assistance.

Thank you,
Tyler

Mark,
That solved it!  Not only are you really smart, you're nice too.  That
always makes my day better.

Thanks for taking the time to answer the question.  That was so easy and
simple to do-but somehow when I get inside mailman I have this horrible fear
of breaking it.  (I've done that a few times).

Thanks again!

 This list is for any and all Mailman users. No apologies required.

 If I understand correctly, the easiest solution is to make all the
 domains local in Postfix. I.e. in main.cf, if for example you have

 myhostname = domain1.info

 you could put

 mydestination = $myhostname, localhost.$mydomain, localhost,
 domain2.info, domain3.info, domain4.info, domain5.info


 Then, assuming you have aliases for all the lists, this should work.


 In any case, you should also have in mm_cfg.py (assuming the web domain
 corresponding to the email domain domain1.info is www.domain.info)

 add_virtualhost(www.domain1.info, domain1.info)
 add_virtualhost(www.domain2.info, domain2.info)
 add_virtualhost(www.domain3.info, domain3.info)
 add_virtualhost(www.domain4.info, domain4.info)
 add_virtualhost(www.domain5.info, domain5.info)

 This is to facilitate creating lists in the proper domain from the web.

 If you want some of these domains to be virtual in Postfix, it's a
 bit more involved. If you let us know exactly what the requirement is,
 we can help with that too.

[Mailman-Users] Mx Records and Mailmans use of a domain

2010-05-05 Thread Ty Nelson
Hey geniuses,


In the beginning I was initially told that a shortcut moethod of getting
mailman to work with a domain was to just remove the domains mx records.
 This has worked.  My question is, how can I make it so my domain can still
have email working on the domain, as well as mailman?  As of now, mailman is
all the domain is used for.  Probably a dumb question, but how should I
setup my domains mx records so that the hosting company email still
functions with the domain, and mailman can also use the domain?

Thanks,
-Tyler

Perfect!  Thanks for letting me know those two options.  I think my last
question is how can I teach my MTA to relay non-Mailman-list mail to the
hosting company's server?  Is that something that is simple or should I
contact the hosting company to inquire about that?

Thanks again Mark!

 I assume the Mailman server is not the same as the hosting company's
 mail server. In that case, you have two choices. You can leave your
 domain with no MX and only an A record (or an MX that points to the
 domain) and teach your MTA to relay non-Mailman-list mail to the
 hosting company's server, or you can set your domain's MX to point to
 the hosting company server and teach it to relay all Mailman list mail
 to your server.

Hmm.

GoDaddy is the main one. Another is 11. I'll look into it there though, and
thanks so much.

 The answer to that depends at least in part on your MTA. Ideally you
 would arrange for the MTA to just relay the non-list mail to the
 hosting company's MX without altering the envelope recipient. It is
 likely that the host's MX won't know how to deliver the mail if you
 alter the envelope recipient. How you do this depends on your MTA.
 What is it? We may be able to help if we know that, but really it's a
 question for a list devoted to your MTA.

 Otherwise, you could just alias u...@your.domain to
 u...@host.mx.domain, but the host's MX probably won't know how to
 deliver that.

[Mailman-Users] Images lose integrity and size changes.

2010-05-20 Thread Ty Nelson
Pretty basic question, I'm hoping.  First of all-Hello everyone!  W hen
sending a newsletter out via mailman (postfix mta), what is the best method
for setting the images correctly and in the appropriate places.  Meaning,
sometimes they shift from where we originally placed them, and the entire
framework of the newsletter is compromised.  We have been using outlook to
build up the newsletters before sending them, but perhaps there is a better
method when it comes to using mailman.  Is there a trick to this, or is the
error on our end (which almost always seems the case)  :)

Thanks a ton!
