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

83     following address:
84     </p>
85

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

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

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