Default Add addresses to a mailing list

Hi folks.

I've created a mailing list but... how do you add addresses to the list? I may be going blind but I can't see a mechanism anywhere for doing that.

Ta muchly.

Simon.

You can do this from within the mailman web interface. mailman has its own management application for subscribers, ispconfig creates just the lists.

If you installed and configured mailman as described in the manual, then you should be able to reach mailman as described in the mailman chapter:

Quote:
This defines the alias /cgi-bin/mailman/ for all Apache vhosts, which means you can access the Mailman
admin interface for a list at http://<vhost>/cgi-bin/mailman/admin/<listname>, and the web page for
users of a mailing list can be found at http://<vhost>/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/<listname>.

Ah. I followed the "perfect server" installation instructions and I don't think they mentioned mailman so it'll not be installed.

Much as I'd like a copy of the manual, I can't afford it so I'll try the install without instructions and hope for the best. LOL

It is described in the latst perfet server guides as well, e.g. : http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-se...ispconfig-3-p4

If you dont run nginx, you skip the last part that configures the nginx files.

Horrible feeling there's more to it than that. I did
Code:
apt-get install mailman
and got this...

Code:
root@laphroaig:~# apt-get install mailman

mailman is already the newest version.

Ok, I added the
Code:
= 'en'
then continued with section 15 of The Perfect Server - Ubuntu 11.10 With Nginx [ISPConfig 3] - Page 4.

I added the aliases, ran newaliases, restarted apache, started mailman and all seemed fine.
I went to http://drsimon.co.nz:8081/cgi-bin/ma...stinfo/mailman and ... 404.

I'm beginning to think I'm an idiot. LOL

Do you use Apache or nginx? If you use Apache, please disable suExec for that website.

Also, check that website's error log.
