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:

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

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

457     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
458     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
459     following two addresses:
460     </p>
