    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.

    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:

    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

    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
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    mailman is already the newest version.
    The following packages were automatically installed and are no longer required:

    Use 'apt-get autoremove' to remove them.

    Open /var/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py and set
    Code:
    DEFAULT_SERVER_LANGUAGE = 'en'

    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/mailman/listinfo/mailman and ... 404. :confused:

    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.
