43     <p>
44     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
45 nightmorph 1.112 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by <uri
46     link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers
47     and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list
48     manager standards and conventions.
49 neysx 1.44 </p>
50    
51     <p>
52 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
53 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
54     </p>
55    
56 nightmorph 1.118 <p>
57     <c>listname+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
58     </p>
59 neysx 1.44
60     <note>
61 neysx 1.93 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
62 robbat2 1.108 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
63 neysx 1.93 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
64 neysx 1.44 </note>
65    
66 nightmorph 1.118 <p>
67     Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:
68     </p>
69    
70     <p>
71     <c>listname@lists.gentoo.org</c>
72     </p>
73    
74     <p>
75     To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:
76     </p>
77    
78     <p>
79     <c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c>
80     </p>
81 neysx 1.44
82     <p>
83     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
84     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
85 robbat2 1.100 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
86     unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
87     the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
88     following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
89     respectively:
90 neysx 1.44 </p>
91    
92     <p>
93 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
94     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
95 neysx 1.57 </p>
96    
97     <p>
98 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
99 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
100 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
101     </p>
102    
103     <p>
104 robbat2 1.108 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
105     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>

602 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
603     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
604     </p>
605    
606     <p>
607 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
608 nightmorph 1.118 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports "nomail"
609     subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can be
610     used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's
611     say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>, but
612     you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
613 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
614 nightmorph 1.118 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c> You should then be allowed
615     to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
616 neysx 1.44 </p>
617    
618 curtis119 1.83 <p>
619 nightmorph 1.118 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from a
620     non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to <path>/dev/null</path>.
621     You will <b>not</b> receive any bounce message from our servers. This prevents
622     spammers from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.
623 robbat2 1.113 </p>

625     <p>
626 curtis119 1.83 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
627     this?</b>
628     </p>
629 neysx 1.44
630     <p>
631     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
632     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
633     following two addresses:
634     </p>
635    
636 robbat2 1.108 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
637     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>

641     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
642     </p>
643 neysx 1.44
644     <p>
645     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
646     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
647     </p>
648    
649     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
650 swift 1.38 :0:
651 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
652     Mail/listname
653 neysx 1.44 </pre>
654    
655     <p>
656     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
657     manager emails.
658     </p>

661     <b>Misc list policies.</b>
662     </p>
663    
664 nightmorph 1.112 <p>
665     HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
666     web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
667     users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
668     might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
669     order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
670     text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
671     </p>
672    
673     <p>
674     Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
675     interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
676     goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
677     previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
678     also be removed.
679     </p>
680    
681     <note>
682 nightmorph 1.116 For general email list etiquette, <uri
683 nightmorph 1.112 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
684     excellent primer.
