    Hi all,
    i try to understang how to configure mailman in order to use with ispconfig.

    i upgraded my ispconfig to ISPConfig 2.2.3
    I installed mailman from debian-package with apt-get

    and then?
    i try to set for a site the option mailing list and i enable cgi but i don't understand how to access to mailing list and how configure it

    if i do a list_lists i see only the mailman 1st mailing list

    Anyone can give me some hints?

    Did you do a fresh install or an update? Did the installer ask you about mailman?

    i did the upgrade before installing mailman.
    I try now to redo the upgrade (after the installation of mailman) but the installer don't ask to me nothing about mailman.

    This is because it's an update and not a fresh install.

    Here it what it does :

    it adds admispconfig to the list group

    $go_info["server"]["mailman"]["default_mailman_domain"] = "";
    $go_info["server"]["mailman"]["new_list_path"] = "/usr/lib/mailman/bin/newlist";
    $go_info["server"]["mailman"]["config_list_path"] = "/usr/lib/mailman/bin/config_list";
    it adds
    ### Mailman Section ###
    ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
    ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
    Alias /images/mailman/ /usr/share/images/mailman/
    ### End of Mailman Section ###
    to the apache configuration

    transport_maps = hash:/etc/postfix/transport
    relay_domains = hash:/etc/postfix/relay-host-names
    mailman_destination_recipient_limit = 1
    to /etc/postfix/

    then do
    postmap /etc/postfix/transport
    postmap /etc/postfix/relay-host-names

    mailman   unix  -       n       n       -       -       pipe flags=FR user=list argv=/var/lib/mailman/bin/ ${nexthop} ${user}
    to /etc/postfix/


    This are the steps that are done by the installer. I hope it helps and I hope I didn't miss one step.

    Did you set the field "Mailman Domain:" in Management -> Settings -> EMail ?

    you say edit

    is that the one in the install_ispconfig directory? Do I then run ./setup or does that file end up in /root/ispconfig or some where else where I can edit it.
