32     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
33 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
34     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
35 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
36     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
37     </p>
38    
39     <p>
40 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
41 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
42     </p>
43    
44 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
45 neysx 1.44
46     <note>
47     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
48     </note>
49    
50     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>

54 neysx 1.44
55     <p>
56     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
57     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
58     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
59     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
60     </p>
61    
62     <p>
63 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
64     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
65 neysx 1.57 </p>
66    
67     <p>
68 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
69 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
70 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
71     </p>
72    
73     <p>
74     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
75     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
76     </p>
77     <p>

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

488 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
489     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
490     </p>
491    
492     <p>
493 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
494 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
495     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
496     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
497 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
498     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
499 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
500 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
501 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
502     and work email addresses.
503     </p>

506     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
507     this?</b>
508     </p>
509 neysx 1.44
510     <p>
511     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
512     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
513     following two addresses:
514     </p>
515    
516 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
517     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
518 neysx 1.44 </p>

521     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
522     </p>
523 neysx 1.44
524     <p>
525     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
526     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
527     </p>
528    
529     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
530 swift 1.38 :0:
531 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
532     Mail/listname
533 neysx 1.44 </pre>
534    
535     <p>
536     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
537     manager emails.
