36     <p>
37     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
38 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
39     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
40 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
41     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
42     </p>
43    
44     <p>
45 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
46 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
47     </p>
48    
49 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
50 neysx 1.44
51     <note>
52     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
53     </note>
54    
55     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
56     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
57     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
58 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
59 neysx 1.44
60     <p>
61     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
62     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
63     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
64     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
65     </p>
66    
67     <p>
68 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
69     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
70 neysx 1.57 </p>
71    
72     <p>
73 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
74 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
75 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
76     </p>
77    
78     <p>
79     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
80     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
81     </p>
82     <p>
83 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
84     following address:
85     </p>
86    
87     <p>

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

517 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
518     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
519     </p>
520    
521     <p>
522 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
523 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
524     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
525     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
526 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
527     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
528 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
529 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
530 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
531     and work email addresses.
532     </p>

535     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
536     this?</b>
537     </p>
538 neysx 1.44
539     <p>
540     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
541     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
542     following two addresses:
543     </p>
544    
545 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
546     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
547 neysx 1.44 </p>

550     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
551     </p>
552 neysx 1.44
553     <p>
554     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
555     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
556     </p>
557    
558     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
559 swift 1.38 :0:
560 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
561     Mail/listname
562 neysx 1.44 </pre>
563    
564     <p>
565     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
566     manager emails.
