Topic: Mailman

I created a distinct topic for Mailman, as requested ...

I just skimmed over the changelog and for iRedMail-0.4.0 it says: Remove package: cyrus-sasl, mailman.

Why was Mailman removed as an optional part when installing iRedMail? imo having the possibility of installing a mailing list manager is quite important.

Re: Mailman

It's not integrated so smoothly, so we removed it TEMPORARILY. but we don't know when we will re-integrate it.

Re: Mailman

I see. Any (even a rough estimate) idea when Mailman will return, thus being a possible optional pick when installing iRedMail?

Re: Mailman

No plan yet.

But you can find many docs in google about how to integrate mailman with postfix. it works as expect.

Patches for iRedMail are always welcome.

PS: LDAP solution has built-in mail list support, and iRedAdmin can manage it.

Re: Mailman

Speaking of Mailman ... I figure we do not have a mailing list yes? There is this forum plus the IRC channel (#iredmail on freenode) but no mailing list (correct me if I am wrong).

I say we sould opt to have a mailing list since a forum is somewhat a "fat" choice for discussing things. Once we have a mailing list, I can subscribe it to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gmane which is good because even folks who join later, can access emails that were send to the list in the past. I have done it for many free software projects already.

Here it is: http://groups.google.com/group/iredmail/

Re: Mailman

ok, I filled a subscription request to Gmane ... usually takes a week or so until the admins review and grant it. It then looks like this http://dir.gmane.org/gmane.comp.web.mailmanager.user (mailman here).

Also, one can use his Newsreader (e.g. Gnus) to read and post via Gmane which has the benefit of a unique user interface as opposed to deal with any mailing list individually.

Well done, thanks Suno. smile

Re: Mailman

as mailman is quite a popular mailing-list manager - what are the really differences between mailman and the irm-PRO-version?

We have only one edition of iRedMail, it's free and open source. There's no iRedMail-Pro.

iRedMail has a simple built-in mail list implementation, but it's not a true mailing list, it's something like alias account.

Re: Mailman

By "Pro" meant the LDAP-Interface smile

Maybe somebody want to put this [HOWTO] Configure Mailman on CentOS/RHEL 5 to the wiki or even provide some patches to the main irm-tree?
