38     <p>
39     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
40 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
41     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
42 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
43     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
44     </p>
45    
46     <p>
47 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
48 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
49     </p>
50    
51 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c></p>
52 neysx 1.44
53     <note>
54 neysx 1.93 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
55 robbat2 1.108 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
56 neysx 1.93 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
57 neysx 1.44 </note>
58    
59     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
60 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c></p>
61 neysx 1.44 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
62 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c></p>
63 neysx 1.44
64     <p>
65     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
66     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
67 robbat2 1.100 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
68     unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
69     the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
70     following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
71     respectively:
72 neysx 1.44 </p>
73    
74     <p>
75 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
76     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
77 neysx 1.57 </p>
78    
79     <p>
80 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
81 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
82 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
83     </p>
84    
85     <p>
86 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
87     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
88 klieber 1.67 </p>
89     <p>
90 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
91     following address:

569 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
570     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
571     </p>
572    
573     <p>
574 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
575 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
576     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
577     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
578 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
579     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
580 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
581 robbat2 1.108 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
582 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
583     and work email addresses.
584     </p>
585

587     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
588     this?</b>
589     </p>
590 neysx 1.44
591     <p>
592     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
593     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
594     following two addresses:
595     </p>
596    
597 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
598     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
599 neysx 1.44 </p>
600    
601 curtis119 1.83 <p>
602     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
603     </p>
604 neysx 1.44
605     <p>
606     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
607     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
608     </p>
609    
610     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
611 swift 1.38 :0:
612 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
613     Mail/listname
614 neysx 1.44 </pre>
615    
616     <p>
617     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
618     manager emails.
619     </p>
620    
621 robbat2 1.104 <p>
622     <b>Misc list policies.</b>
623     </p>
624    
625     <p>Please do not send any vacation messages to the list. In the interests of reducing list spam, if you set a auto-responding vacation message that goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from all lists.</p>
