35 <p>
36 The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
37 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
38 <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
39 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
40 comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
41 </p>
42
43 <p>
44 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
45 empty email to:
46 </p>
47
48 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
49
50 <note>
51 Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe
52 to, e.g.: <c>gentoo-user+subscribe@gentoo.org</c> to subscribe to the
53 <c>gentoo-user</c> mailing list.
54 </note>
55
56 <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
57 <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
58 <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
59 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
60
61 <p>
62 All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
63 a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
64 each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
65 unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
66 </p>
67
68 <p>
69 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
70 <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
71 </p>
72
73 <p>
74 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
75 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
76 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
77 </p>
78
79 <p>
80 <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
81 <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
82 </p>
83 <p>
84 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
85 following address:
86 </p>
87
88 <p>
89 <c>listname+help@gentoo.org</c><br/>
90 </p>
91
92 <p>
93 You can also learn more about the Gentoo mailing list system by reading the
94 short Gentoo mailing
95 list FAQ that appears later in this document.

516 <title>Mailing List Mini-FAQ</title>
517 <body>
518
519 <p>
520 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
521 the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
522 </p>
523
524 <p>
525 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
526 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
527 "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
528 that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
529 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
530 but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
531 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
532 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
533 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
534 and work email addresses.
535 </p>
536
537 <p>
538 <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
539 this?</b>
540 </p>
541
542 <p>
543 Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
544 list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
545 following two addresses:
546 </p>
547
548 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
549 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
550 </p>
551
552 <p>
553 <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
554 </p>
555
556 <p>
557 To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
558 <c>procmail</c> recipe:
559 </p>
560
561 <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
562 :0:
563 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
564 Mail/listname
565 </pre>
566
567 <p>
568 This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
569 manager emails.
