    I am running ISPConfig 3 on Debian Wheezy. And I used the perfect server setup guide.
    I have created a new mailing list "Newsletter". I wanted to let users confirm their email address before being part of the mailing list.
    Clicking on the link works, but replying to the email or sending a new mail to newsletter-requestatmyserver didn't work as I have a catchall account and the mail is just routed to my mailbox. So I set the setting to approve only. But sending a mail to [email protected] redirects it back to my inbox. How do I post to the mailing list? What settings can I adjust for mailman to see the mails?

    It might be that you can't use a catchall together with mailing lists on the same domain. Try to disable the catchall.

    I have followed the steps on Now I receive all the mails in my inbox. Even the ones I send from my account comes through to my inbox. Any help will be appreciated

    OK, So I finally got it working. Probably not the best way, but it works for me.
    I couldn't understand why each time I change it gets reverted back.
    I then changed /usr/local/ispconfig/server/conf/ to suit my configuration.
    DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'http://%s/'
    And removed the etc/mailman/ line
    relay_domains = mysql:/etc/postfix/,
    relay_recipient_maps = mysql:/etc/postfix/, hash:/var/lib/mailman/data/virtual-mailman
    transport_maps = proxy:mysql:/etc/postfix/, hash:/etc/postfix/transport

    Log into ISPConfig, create a email domain list.mydomain, create a mailing list for that domain, remove the mailing list.
    Run /usr/lib/mailman/bin/genaliases and newaliases. And now it is working
