19     <body>
20    
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:

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

426     <section>
427     <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
428     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
429     <body>
430    
431     <p>
432     To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
433 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
434     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
435     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
436 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
437     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
438 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
439     <c>gentoo-dev-subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
440 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
441     and work email addresses.

449     this?</title>
450     <body>
451    
452     <p>
453     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
454     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
455     following two addresses:
456     </p>
457    
458     <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
459 neysx 1.57 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

466     <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
467     <body>
468    
469     <p>
470     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
471     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
472     </p>
473    
474     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
475 swift 1.38 :0:
476 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
477     Mail/listname
478 neysx 1.44 </pre>
479    
480     <p>
481     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
482     manager emails.
483     </p>
