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

103 etiquette and acceptable behavior, by reading the short Gentoo mailing list FAQ

570 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
571 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
572 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
573 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
574 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
575 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
576 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@lists.gentoo.org</c>
577 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
578 and work email addresses.

582 In line with the original spam reduction goal, if you post to the list from
583 a non-subscribed address, your mail will be delivered to /dev/null. You will
584 <b>not</b> recieve any bounce message from our servers. This prevents spammers
585 from forging your address to get a bounce delivered to you.

589 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
590 this?</b>
591 </p>
592
593 <p>
594 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
595 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
596 following two addresses:
597 </p>
598
599 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@lists.gentoo.org</c><br/>
600 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@lists.gentoo.org</c>
601 </p>

604 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
605 </p>
606
607 <p>
608 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
609 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
610 </p>
611
612 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
613 :0:
614 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
615 Mail/listname
616 </pre>
617
618 <p>
619 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
620 manager emails.

627 <p>
628 HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
629 web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
630 users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
631 might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
632 order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
633 text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.
634 </p>
635
636 <p>
637 Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
638 interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
639 goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
640 previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
641 also be removed.
642 </p>

644 <note>
645 For general email list etiquette, <uri
646 link="http://www.dtcc.edu/cs/rfc1855.html">these guidelines</uri> are an
647 excellent primer.
