Mailing lists



Description

A Mailing-list enables you to define mail address which redirects to some mailboxes (@tuxfamily.org or not). A project may have one or more list(s).

Dependencies

Creation

You can create lists with either your own domain or with lists.tuxfamily.org domain.

If you want your mailing lists to be @yourproject.org, then you need to create a yourproject.org mail domain via the Mail panel and have your Email accounts for @yourproject.org be hosted by TuxFamily.

Alternatively, if you want your mailing list(s) to be in a subdomain of the domain that you have purchased for your project (e.g. @lists.yourproject.org'), then the steps you need to take are as follows:

  • After you have used the DNS panel to have Tuxfamily manage DNS for yourproject.org.
  1. Create the lists.yourproject.org subdomain with the DNS panel.
  2. Create the lists.yourproject.org maildomain via the Mail panel.
  3. Create the discuss @ lists.yourproject.org mailing list via the Mailing List panel.

Moderation

This object is submitted to moderation see : here

How to Administer (panel)

Configuration

When you create a mailing list, you have many options. See details :

  • Moderated : Posts on mailing list are moderated. Administrator have to validate messages before they are sent to members of the list(disabled by default).
  • Open subscribing : Anybody can subscribe to this list and receive messages. (enabled by default).
  • Open Post : Anybody can post a message on this list (disabledto avoid spam, except if a member of your list have a virus)
  • Open Archives : Archives of the list are public (disabled by default)

Users have different permissions. "Subscriber" Right permits to send and receive messages. An Administrator, could moderate messages of the list, subscribe new members.

When you create a list, you have to define a base name which creates two adresses :

  • basename@domain, used to post on the list. (default : domain = lists.tuxfamily.org or your own domain name if you manage it by the panel).
  • basename-request@domain, used for administration requests. Used to subscribe, unsubscribe, etc ...

How to handle group rights

This object can be shared with your group using the ACL

How to delete

  • login with Panel
  • click on your project's group
  • click on your mailing list
  • click on Delete

How to use

We will concentrate on the address name_of_list-request@domain, which will allow you to manage your list. Here is how it works.

For the lambda user (or bêta)

To subscribe to the ML, just send a mail to name_of_list-request@domain with subject : "subscribe" (yes, you read correctly, the -request is for administrative management). A mail is sent back to confirm the request. To unsubscribe, it's the same thing but with the subject being "unsubscribe". And to annoy the user till the end, confirmation is needed too.

Your list archives are available at : http://listengine.tuxfamily.org/DOMAINNAME/LISTNAME

example : http://listengine.tuxfamily.org/vhffs.org/vhffs-dev/

If your project is hosted directly at TuxFamily, the URL will be: http://listengine.tuxfamily.org/lists.tuxfamily.org/LISTNAME/

As administrator

For moderation, administrators can send the following messages:

  • A message with the subject: "moderate list" will get you a list of messages to moderate.
  • A message with the subject: "moderate accept XXXXX" will validate and send to the list the message identified by XXXXXX
  • A message with the subject: "moderate refuse XXXXX" will delete the message identified by XXXXXX

Tips and Tricks

  • To get help, simply send a message with "help" as the subject line to name_of_list-request@domain.
  • When the list engine doesn't understand an email sent to it, it will send you an email telling you as much.
  • Don't add the list's email address as one of its recipients.
