22 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
23 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
24 <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
25 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
26 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
27 </p>

29 <p>
30 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
31 empty email to:
32 </p>
33
34 <p><c>listname-subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
35
36 <note>
37 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
38 </note>
39
40 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
41 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
42 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
43 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
44
45 <p>
46 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
47 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
48 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
49 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
50 </p>
51
52 <p>
53 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
54 <c>listname-unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
55 </p>

57 <p>

59 following address:

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

389 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
390 <section>
391 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
392 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
393 <body>
394
395 <p>
396 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
397 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
398 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
399 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
400 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
401 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
402 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
403 <c>gentoo-dev-subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
404 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
405 and work email addresses.

412 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
413 this?</title>
414 <body>
415
416 <p>
417 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
418 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
419 following two addresses:
420 </p>
421
422 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
423 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
424 </p>
425
426 </body>
427 </section>
428
429 <section>
430 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
431 <body>
432
433 <p>
434 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
435 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
436 </p>
437
438 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
439 :0:
440 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
441 Mail/listname
442 </pre>
443
444 <p>
445 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
446 manager emails.
