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
61 list FAQ that appears later in this document.

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

369 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
370 <section>
371 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
372 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
373 <body>
374
375 <p>
376 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
377 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>ezmlm/idx</c> supports a
378 concept known as "aliases," allowing you to register alternate email addresses
379 that can also be used to post to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
380 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
381 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
382 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>jim@home.com</c>) to
383 <c>gentoo-dev-allow-subscribe-james=work.com@gentoo.org</c> (note the <c>@</c>
384 becoming an <c>=</c>,) and then reply to the confirmation email you receive.
385 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
386 and work email addresses.
387 </p>
388
389 </body>
390 </section>
391
392 <section>
393 <title>Where do I set/store my mailing list password?</title>
394 <body>
395
396 <p>
397 <c>ezmlm/idx</c> does not use passwords; instead, it uses auto-generated
398 cryptographic cookies for security.
399 </p>
400
401 </body>
402 </section>
403
404 <section>
405 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
406 this?</title>
407 <body>
408
409 <p>
410 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
411 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
412 following two addresses:
413 </p>
414
415 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
416 <c>listname-digest-subscribe@gentoo.org</c>
417 </p>
418
419 </body>
420 </section>
421
422 <section>
423 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
424 <body>
425
426 <p>
427 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
428 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
429 </p>
430
431 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
432 :0:
433 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
434 Mail/listname
435 </pre>
436
437 <p>
438 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
439 manager emails.
