39 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
40 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
41 <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
42 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
43 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
44 </p>
45
46 <p>
47 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
48 empty email to:
49 </p>
50
51 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
52
53 <note>
54 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
55 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
56 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
57 </note>
58
59 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
60 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
61 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
62 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
63
64 <p>
65 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
66 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
67 each post. If you are subscribed to the digest variant and wish to be
68 unsubscribed, you must specifically unsubscribe from the digest variant. Using
69 the email address that you wish to (un)subscribe, send an empty email to the
70 following addresses to subscribe and unsubscribe from mailing lists
71 respectively:
72 </p>
73
74 <p>
75 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
76 <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
77 </p>
78
79 <p>
80 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
81 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
82 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
83 </p>
84
85 <p>
86 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
87 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
88 </p>
89 <p>
90 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
91 following address:
92 </p>
93
94 <p>
95 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>
96 </p>
97

99 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
100 short Gentoo mailing
101 list FAQ that appears later in this document.

561 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
562 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
563 </p>
564
565 <p>
566 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
567 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
568 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
569 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
570 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
571 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
572 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
573 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
574 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
575 and work email addresses.

579 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
580 this?</b>
581 </p>
582
583 <p>
584 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
585 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
586 following two addresses:
587 </p>
588
589 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
590 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
591 </p>

594 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
595 </p>
596
597 <p>
598 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
599 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
600 </p>
601
602 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
603 :0:
604 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
605 Mail/listname
606 </pre>
607
608 <p>
609 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
610 manager emails.
611 </p>

613 <p>
614 <b>Misc list policies.</b>
615 </p>
616
617 <p>Please do not send any vacation messages to the list. In the interests of reducing list spam, if you set a auto-responding vacation message that goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from all lists.</p>
