I have been trying to set up the MailMan mailing list software. The
situation I am in is that I get my mail from my ISP with fetchmail
over a DSL link. Doing this seems to bugger up the incoming mail in
some way so that the mail that should go to the MailMan software to be
processed just gets dropped in my mailbox. I have a set of aliases
for sendmail in /etc/aliases that are supposed to redirect mail to the
list. ENVELOPE_TO either is set to my email address or is empty on
the mail that gets dropped off.
I've tried to set up a procmail recipe on the server so that I can
redirect the mailing list mail to sendmail to be processed correctly.
I can't seem to get this right. I'm doing something like this:
* !^X-Loop: test2(_at_)trollope(_dot_)org
| (/usr/bin/formail -A"X-Loop: test2(_at_)trollope(_dot_)org")\
| "/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -- test2"
`test2' is the sendmail alias that redirects the mail to the
software. This recipe generates `program error (127)' so I know
something is wrong with it, but I don't know what.
Would I be better off using SmartList in this situation? I asked
about my problem on the MailMan mailing list; the only answer I got
was `use procmail.' Hmm, thank you very little. I'd be glad to use
procmail if I could figure out how to make it work.
Thanks for any help you can give me. I really would like to get this
list set up over the weekend.
