confused on mailman
sarge, mailman, exim4:
all I wish to do is set up a simple mailing list for family use. Any
family subscriber can post a message and any family subscriber can
respond. Much like debian-user.
so far I have:
apt-get install mailman
and carried out all the instructions except adding the following lines
to my apache config file:
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
Alias /images/mailman/ /usr/share/images/mailman/
1. I don't know where the apache config file lives and
2. I don't want the mail list archive to be public
I've added the aliases (manually - newlist does not add them) to
/etc/aliases and I have run newaliases. I have restarted mailman and exim4.
I can send mail to the list:
ls | mail -s test sheep
and no errors are returned
similarly (as joe):
ls | mail -s subscribe sheep-subscribe
returns no errors. But I get no acknowledgement and subsequent mails to
sheep are not mailed to me as a subscriber.
Confused :-( I need an idiots guide.
