32     <p>
33     The Gentoo free software project has a number of public mailing lists, covering
34 neysx 1.57 a variety of Gentoo-related subjects. Our mailing lists are powered by
35     <uri link="http://mlmmj.mmj.dk">mlmmj</uri> and
36 neysx 1.44 provides <c>List-Id:</c> mail headers and <c>[listname]</c> subject prefixes to
37     comply with modern mailing list manager standards and conventions.
38     </p>
39    
40     <p>
41 neysx 1.57 One interacts with <c>mlmmj</c> via email. To subscribe to a list, send an
42 neysx 1.44 empty email to:
43     </p>
44    
45 klieber 1.67 <p><c>listname+subscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
46 neysx 1.44
47     <note>
48     Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to.
49     </note>
50    
51     <p>Once subscribed to the list, you can post to it by sending an email to:</p>
52     <p><c>listname@gentoo.org</c></p>
53     <p>To unsubscribe from a list, send an empty email to:</p>
54 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c></p>
55 neysx 1.44
56     <p>
57     All of our lists also have a corresponding digest list. Digest lists will mail
58     a single email to you every couple of days, rather than individual emails for
59     each post. Send an empty email to the following addresses to subscribe and
60     unsubscribe from mailing lists respectively:
61     </p>
62    
63     <p>
64 klieber 1.67 <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c><br/>
65     <c>listname+unsubscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
66 neysx 1.57 </p>
67    
68     <p>
69 klieber 1.67 Some users may want to post to the list, but not actually receive mail from
70 lcars 1.68 it (such as those who read lists via an alternate method, such as gmane).
71 klieber 1.67 These users may subscribe to the "nomail" option of each list:
72     </p>
73    
74     <p>
75     <c>listname+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c><br/>
76     <c>listname+unsubscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
77     </p>
78     <p>
79 neysx 1.57 You can learn more about the capabilities of mlmmj by sending an empty mail to the
80     following address:
81     </p>
82    
83     <p>

484     We used to host our own mail archives, but that got pretty boring fast. The
485     following sites host pretty decent archives of most of the mailing lists, so
486     please utilize them rather than asking for 'official' Gentoo mailing list
487 swift 1.54 archives. These are the 'official' ones :).<br/>

501 curtis119 1.83 <b>I subscribed to a list using my home email address, but I can't post to
502     the list from work. What do I do to fix this?</b>
503     </p>
504    
505     <p>
506 neysx 1.44 To reduce spam, all of our lists are configured to only allow posts from
507 neysx 1.57 official subscriber email addresses. Fortunately, <c>mlmmj</c> supports
508     "nomail" subscriptions, allowing you to register alternate email addresses
509     that can be used only for posting to the list. Here's an example of how this works.
510 neysx 1.44 Let's say you subscribed to the <c>gentoo-dev</c> list as <c>jim@home.com</c>,
511     but you'd also like to post to the list using your <c>james@work.com</c> email
512 neysx 1.57 address. To do this, send a message (as <c>james@work.com</c>) to
513 lcars 1.68 <c>gentoo-dev+subscribe-nomail@gentoo.org</c>
514 neysx 1.44 You should then be allowed to post to <c>gentoo-dev</c> using both your home
515     and work email addresses.
516     </p>

519     <b>I want to switch from regular delivery to digest delivery. How do I do
520     this?</b>
521     </p>
522 neysx 1.44
523     <p>
524     Unsubscribe from the normal list and then subscribe to the digest list. For
525     list <c>listname</c>, this would be done by sending empty emails to the
526     following two addresses:
527     </p>
528    
529 lcars 1.68 <p><c>listname+unsubscribe@gentoo.org</c><br/>
530     <c>listname+subscribe-digest@gentoo.org</c>
531 neysx 1.44 </p>
532    
533 curtis119 1.83 <p>
534     <b>How do I use procmail to filter Gentoo mailing list messages?</b>
535     </p>
536 neysx 1.44
537     <p>
538     To filter incoming mail arriving from list <c>listname</c>, use the following
539     <c>procmail</c> recipe:
540     </p>
541    
542     <pre caption="Sample procmail recipe">
543 swift 1.38 :0:
544 drobbins 1.1 * ^List-Id:.*listname\.gentoo\.org
545     Mail/listname
546 neysx 1.44 </pre>
547    
548     <p>
549     This is identical to how you'd filter incoming <e>Mailman</e> mailing list
550     manager emails.
