21 <p>
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>
28
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>
56
57 <p>
58 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
59 following address:

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

431 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
432 <section>
433 <title>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
434 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</title>
435 <body>
436
437 <p>
438 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
439 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
440 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
441 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
442 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
443 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
444 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
445 <c>gentoo-dev-subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
446 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
447 and work email addresses.

454 <title>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
455 this?</title>
456 <body>
457
458 <p>
459 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
460 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
461 following two addresses:
462 </p>
463
464 <p><c>listname-unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
465 <c>listname-subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
466 </p>

469 </section>
470
471 <section>
472 <title>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</title>
473 <body>
474
475 <p>
476 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
477 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
478 </p>
479
480 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
481 :0:
482 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
483 Mail/listname
484 </pre>
485
486 <p>
487 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
488 manager emails.
