17 vapier 1.41 <p>The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering a variety of Gentoo-related
18 klieber 1.16 subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a customized version of <uri link="http://ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that provides
19 drobbins 1.1 <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to comply with modern mailing list manager standards
20     and conventions.</p>
21    
22     <p>One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an empty email to:</p>
23     <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
24 klieber 1.37 <note>Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to</note>
25 drobbins 1.1 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
26     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
27     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
28     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
29     <p>All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail a single email to you every couple of days,
30     rather than individual emails for each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from
31     mailing lists respectively:</p>
32     <p><c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
33     <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
34 vapier 1.41 <p>You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri link="http://ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>. You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the short Gentoo mailing

272     <p>We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast.
273     The following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists,
274     so please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
275     archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/>

284 drobbins 1.1 <section>
285     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
286    
287     <body><p>To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately,
288     <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses that can also be used to
289     post to the list. Here's an example of how this works. Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
290     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>)
291     to <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c> becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive. You should then
292     be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home and work email addresses.
293     </p></body>

295    
296     <section>
297 klieber 1.5 <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
298 drobbins 1.1 <body><p><c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated cryptographic cookies for security.
299     </p></body>
300     </section>
301    
302     <section>
303     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do this?</title>
304     <body><p>Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by
305     sending empty emails to the following two addresses:</p>
306     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
307     <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
308     </p></body>

311    
312     <section>
313 vapier 1.41 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
314 drobbins 1.1 <body><p>To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following <c>procmail</c> recipe:</p>
315     <pre>
316 swift 1.38 :0:
317 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
318     Mail/listname
319     </pre>
320 klieber 1.25 <p>This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list manager emails.</p>
