31 <p>
32 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
33 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
34 <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
35 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
36 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
37 </p>
38
39 <p>
40 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
41 empty email to:
42 </p>
43
44 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
45
46 <note>
47 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
48 </note>
49
50 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
51 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
52 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
53 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
54
55 <p>
56 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
57 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
58 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
59 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
60 </p>
61
62 <p>
63 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
64 <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
65 </p>
66
67 <p>
68 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
69 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
70 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
71 </p>
72
73 <p>
74 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
75 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
76 </p>
77 <p>
78 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
79 following address:
80 </p>
81
82 <p>
83 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>
84 </p>
85
86 <p>
87 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
88 short Gentoo mailing
89 list FAQ that appears later in this document.

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

484 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
485 <body>
486
487 <p>
488 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
489 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
490 </p>
491
492 <p>
493 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
494 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
495 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
496 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
497 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
498 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
499 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
500 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
501 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
502 and work email addresses.
503 </p>
504
505 <p>
506 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
507 this?</b>
508 </p>
509
510 <p>
511 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
512 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
513 following two addresses:
514 </p>
515
516 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
517 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
518 </p>
519
520 <p>
521 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
522 </p>
523
524 <p>
525 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
526 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
527 </p>
528
529 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
530 :0:
531 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
532 Mail/listname
533 </pre>
534
535 <p>
536 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
537 manager emails.
