20 <p>
21 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
22 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by a
23 customized version of <uri link="http://ezmlm.org">ezmlm/idx</uri> that
24 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
25 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
26 </p>
27
28 <p>
29 One interacts with <c>ezmlm/idx</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
30 empty email to:
31 </p>
32
33 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
34
35 <note>
36 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
37 </note>
38
39 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
40 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
41 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
42 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
43
44 <p>
45 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
46 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
47 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
48 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
49 </p>
50
51 <p>
52 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
53 <c>listname-digest-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c>
54 </p>
55
56 <p>
57 You can learn more about the capabilities of ezmlm/idx by reading the <uri
58 link="http://ezmlm.org/ezman-0.32/ezman1.html">Ezmlm/idx User's Manual</uri>.
59 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
60 short Gentoo mailing

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

348 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
349 <section>
350 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
351 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
352 <body>
353
354 <p>
355 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
356 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a
357 concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses
358 that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
359 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
360 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
361 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>) to
362 <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c>
363 becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive.
364 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
365 and work email addresses.

371 <section>
372 <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
373 <body>
374
375 <p>
376 <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
377 cryptographic cookies for security.
378 </p>
379

382
383 <section>
384 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
385 this?</title>
386 <body>
387
388 <p>
389 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
390 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
391 following two addresses:
392 </p>
393
394 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
395 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
396 </p>
397
398 </body>
399 </section>
400
401 <section>
402 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
403 <body>
404
405 <p>
406 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
407 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
408 </p>
409
410 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
411 :0:
412 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
413 Mail/listname
414 </pre>
415
416 <p>
417 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
418 manager emails.
