    Yes.....I run multiple lists on multiple domains with the configuration described in this thread.

    I would hope it would become a choice in the Control Panel, rather than
    having to set it up manually.

    On my CentOS box o got huge errors about mussing things and stuff, I never made it running.

    It's hardware that makes a machine fast. It's software that makes a fast machine slow.

    Question

    I have gotten most of the way with this install however I am getting the following errors;

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/mailman start
    Starting mailman: Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "/usr/local/mailman/bin/mailmanctl", line 106, in ?
        from Mailman import mm_cfg
      File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py", line 53
        DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'dxmhosting.com'
        ^
    SyntaxError: invalid syntax
    Needless to say I have something configured wrong there but not exactly sure what it is

    Second thing I am getting is this when I browse to http://dxmhosting.com/mailman
    Code:
    Mailman CGI error!!!
    The Mailman CGI wrapper encountered a fatal error. This entry is being stored in your syslog:
    
    Group mismatch error.  Mailman expected the CGI
    wrapper script to be executed as group "mailman", but
    the system's web server executed the CGI script as
    group "admin".  Try tweaking the web server to run the
    script as group "mailman", or re-run configure, 
    providing the command line option `--with-cgi-gid=admin'.

    Question

    Something here that I am not quite grasping, basically what file should those entries be inserted into or do I need to create a new file for those entries and where do I install them?

    Unhappy Cannot configure httpd with mailman

    Hi
    I've tried to install mailman following the guide a coulpel of time but the main problem is the I cannot access the domain.com/mailman/ folder I got a 403 Error

    the strange is that I can access :
    domain.com/mailman_images/
    domain.com/mailman/archives/

    I've checked and fixed the file permission with the /usr/local/mailman/bin/check_perms and everithing is all right.

    if I try to access the listinfo script I got the a 500 error and the following suexec log

    uid: (501/admin) gid: (501/admin) cmd: listinfo
    directory is writable by others: (/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin)

    I think it is a http configuration isse, but I cannot solve it
    what can be the problem ???

    well..... it turned out that for mailman with suexec that file permission should be different:

    all mailman and cgi-in directory should be 755 so not writables for others
    and the scripts inside cgi-bin shuld not have the setuid turned on


    so
    chmod 755 /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin
    chmod 755 /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/*
    chmod a-s /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/*

    We still continue not to use Mailman with suexec enabled?

    Today I re-read the four pages of this thread, I have returned to perform all the steps carefully, I looking for more information on Google and I always get the same error ...

    500 Server error!

    The server encountered an internal error and was unable to complete your request.

    Error message:
    Premature end of script headers: listinfo
    suexec.log

    Code:
    [2012-06-11 20:46:27]: uid: (501/admin) gid: (502/admin) cmd: listinfo
    [2012-06-11 20:46:27]: target uid/gid (501/502) mismatch with directory (492/492) or program (492/492)
    CentOS 6.2

    Thank

    I want to install MailMan on FreeBSD. I've noticed this tutorial is from 2008. I wonder how actual it is?

    Authenticaton issue

    Hello everybody. I've been using DirectAdmin custombuild for years (since 2008 I believe), and I've learned a lot reading this forum over the years. But now I had to register because I'm running into an issue that I can't seem to find a solution to, so I decided to ask for your help:

    I've installed Mailman (because of Majordomo's trouble with Yahoo's DMARC), following this guide, on my VPS running CentOS 6.6 and DA 1.46.3. I had to configure mailman without suexec, like Yoshua, excepted I had to indicate the user name that goes with my mailing lists' domain name instead of "apache".

    The issue I'm having now is with authentication in Exim, not sure whether it's Mailman- or Exim-related: Whenever I send a message to one of my Mailman list, I get H=localhost (my_server's_rDNS_name) [::1] F=<list_name-bounces@list's_domain_name> rejected RCPT <list_member's_mail_address (not local)>: authentication required in my Exim logs. Only local list members get the messages.

    The only workaround I found so far is adding list_name-bounces@list's_domain_name to Exim's whitelist_senders file (I'm using SpamBlocker 4.2.2 for exim.conf). But I feel this it not a secure way to go, because these whitelisted adresses can be spoofed, so I'd like to find the real cause and solution to this authentication issue. I'm certainly missing something in Exim's configuration, but I can't see what. Any ideas?

    Thanks a lot in advance.

    You're right; that's not a good idea; workaround can open up a hole big enough to drive a truck full of spam through it.

    Mailman is trying to relay, but it's not authenticating as a user.

    That's all I can tell you because I'm not familiar ehough with Mailman. Hopefully someone else, who is, will also respond.

    I'm having the same issue. Did you ever find a better answer than whitelisting the list_name-bounces@example.com address?
