Yes. Use the Workgroup Integration page to link a workgroup that you administer to other Stanford Infrastructure Services, such as AFS, mailing lists, and Active Directory. When a workgroup is linked to another service, any change you make to the workgroup is automatically made to the linked service as well.
Mailman is a free email distribution list service available to anyone in the Stanford community with a full service SUNetID. Mailman offers built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, spam and content filtering, and digest delivery.
The mailmain.stanford.edu Mailing Lists page lists all the public mailing lists on mailman.stanford.edu. If a description is available for a list, it'll be on this page.
Mailman, the GNU mailing list manager, is free software for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. It is written in the Python programming language, with a little bit of C code for security.
Check your mailing list administration settings. See Details, below.
If you find that messages are being held for moderation, check the following settings:
There are two main steps to accomplishing your goal. First, get an email address or request a Mailman distribution list (DL), and then request an email forwarding address.
The Manage the lists I own link takes a long time to load because the Mailman package doesn't normally come with this feature; we had to create it ourselves. Given how list ownership is tracked in Mailman, each mail list must be scanned to find all of your lists.
You can set up your list so that anyone with a Stanford address, including addresses such as @lists.stanford.edu or @gsb.stanford.edu, can post to your list.
To allow posting from any Stanford address:
To get a printable list of members for a Mailman list:
Typically, postings to a Mailman list show the sender's email address as the 'From:' address. You can change your From: address in your email program, but you still need to configure your list to accept the posting, since the list address itself is not a member of the list.
To use the list address as the From address of a posting:
Mailman allows you to set up a reply-to address for a list so that instead of having replies go to the poster or the entire list, they are all forwarded to a particular address that you designate. This is especially useful for a list used only or primarily for announcements.
Mailman lists are typically set up so that people who wish to join the list can submit requests, and the list owner has the option of allowing them all or reviewing them one-by-one. For a closed or internal-only list, it may be appropriate to reject all such requests automatically without requiring further intervention from the owner. This is done through the 'Auto-responder' section.
Mailman can be used to set up a list to be 'announcement-only', that is, to have posting rights restricted to a set of designated members. To do this, on the administrative page for the list, turn on the moderation flag for all list members except designated posters. Then set the Privacy Options to reject or discard postings from moderated members.
Mailman provides several ways to send information to new list subscribers. On the General Options page, you can create text that is sent to all new subscribers. Under the 'Other Administrative Activities', you can specify different additional text to go to Stanford addresses and non-Stanford addresses.
Mailman list owners can unsubscribe a member, and members can unsubscribe themselves. When someone is unsubscribed from a list when neither of these has happened, it's because of Mailman's automated bounce processing.
