31     <p>
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>
51     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
52     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
53 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></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>
78 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
79     following address:

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

496 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
497     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
498     </p>

501 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
502 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
503     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
504     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
505 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
506     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
507 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
508 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
509 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
510     and work email addresses.
511     </p>

514     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
515     this?</b>
516     </p>
517 neysx 1.44
518     <p>
519     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
520     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
521     following two addresses:
522     </p>
523    
524 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
525     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>

529     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
530     </p>
531 neysx 1.44
532     <p>
533     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
534     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
535     </p>
536    
537     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
538 swift 1.38 :0:
539 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
540     Mail/listname
541 neysx 1.44 </pre>
542    
543     <p>
544     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
545     manager emails.
