21     <p>
22     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
23 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
24     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
25 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
26     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
27     </p>
28    
29     <p>
30 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
31 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
32     </p>
33    
34     <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
35    
36     <note>
37     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
38     </note>
39    
40     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
41     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
42     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
43     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
44    
45     <p>
46     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
47     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
48     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
49     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
50     </p>
51    
52     <p>
53 neysx 1.57 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
54     <c>listname-unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
55     </p>
56    
57     <p>
58     You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
59     following address:

375     We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The
376     following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists, so
377     please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
378 swift 1.54 archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/>

389     <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
390     <section>
391     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
392     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
393     <body>
394    
395     <p>
396     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
397 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
398     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
399     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
400 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
401     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
402 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
403     <c>gentoo-dev-subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
404 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
405     and work email addresses.

412     <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
413     this?</title>
414     <body>
415    
416     <p>
417     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
418     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
419     following two addresses:
420     </p>
421    
422     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
423 neysx 1.57 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

429     <section>
430     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
431     <body>
432    
433     <p>
434     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
435     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
436     </p>
437    
438     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
439 swift 1.38 :0:
440 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
441     Mail/listname
442 neysx 1.44 </pre>
443    
444     <p>
445     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
446     manager emails.
