Default How to add mailman support after installation

Hello gurus,

When I set up my otherwise perfectly working ispconfig system, mailman was not installed, and now I find myself needing mailing list management.

I tried reinstalling ispconfig (via normal upgrade procedure), but this did not pick up mailman.

Is there any way to add the mailman support once ispconfig is already up and running?

Thanks,

Mehumaija

Thanks for the tip. I am having trouble with the instructions therein though, and I believe they contain downright mistakes where telling to edit Postfix master.cf. I believe that in the first instance, main.cf would be the right target.

After making the proposed changes, Postfix complains of errors and I had to roll back to the original configuration.

After making the Apache changes by hand, I can successfully access the mailman web interface, but I would really like to be able to manage the lists via ispconfig.

Mailman is not supported by ISPConfig 2.2.x. This means that you can install it with apt-get but you will have to configure the mailing lists manually on the shell.

mailman is not suppoertd by the current versions of ISPConfig 3. There is mailman support in the ISPConfig 2.3 dev release, but it is highly recommended to not use ISPConfig 2.3 as this branch is not under development anymore.

Today i have installed mailman. I performed the following steps:

Installation:

root@server:/# apt-get install mailman

selected NL and EN for languages

root@server:/# newlist mailman
root@server:/# /etc/init.d/mailman start

Mailman is running, but now we need to do the hacking:

Creating the website:

- Create an new website using ispconfig. (maillist.server.org)
- Enable CGI support for this website

Add the following apache directives to the website:

ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
Alias /pipermail/ /var/lib/mailman/archives/public/
Alias /images/mailman/ /usr/share/images/mailman/

This wil fix u up with a working webinterface like

http://maillist.server.org/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/

Edit the mailman configuration:

vim /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py

Change the following lines to match your ispconfig website url

# Default host for web interface of newly created MLs
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'maillist.server.org'

# The default language for this server.
DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE = 'nl'

This because i like dutch to be the default language

# Default domain for email addresses of newly created MLs
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'maillist.server.org'


Now restart mailman:
root@server:/# /etc/init.d/mailman restart

Delete the mailman maillist

root@server:/# rmlist -a mailman

Recreate the mailman maillist

root@server:/# newlist mailman

If al goes well the following should work ok.

http://maillist.server.org/cgi-bin/m.../admin/mailman


How to fix sending and recieving email from and to the maillist

For now you should be able to create, modify and maintain maillists.

But i dont now how to fix postfix to support the mailman maillist. When i sent a mail to:

550 5.1.1 <mailman-request@maillist.server.org>: Recipient address rejected: User unknown in local recipient table

How do i fix this, And how do i maintain it to work even after creating new websites and stufff...
