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 neysx 1.93 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
52     to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
53     <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
54 neysx 1.44 </note>
55    
56     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
57     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
58     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
59 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
60 neysx 1.44
61     <p>
62     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
63     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
64     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
65     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
66     </p>
67    
68     <p>
69 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
70     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
71 neysx 1.57 </p>
72    
73     <p>
74 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
75 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
76 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
77     </p>
78    
79     <p>
80     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
81     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
82     </p>
83     <p>
84 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
85     following address:
86     </p>
87    
88     <p>
89 lcars 1.68 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>
90 neysx 1.44 </p>

520 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
521     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
522     </p>
523    
524     <p>
525 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
526 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
527     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
528     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
529 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
530     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
531 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
532 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
533 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
534     and work email addresses.
535     </p>
536

538     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
539     this?</b>
540     </p>
541 neysx 1.44
542     <p>
543     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
544     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
545     following two addresses:
546     </p>
547    
548 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
549     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
550 neysx 1.44 </p>
551    
552 curtis119 1.83 <p>
553     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
554     </p>
555 neysx 1.44
556     <p>
557     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
558     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
559     </p>
560    
561     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
562 swift 1.38 :0:
563 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
564     Mail/listname
565 neysx 1.44 </pre>
566    
567     <p>
568     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
569     manager emails.
