TUNABLES for lists managed with mlmmj: -------------------------------------- The following files can be used for changing the behaviour of a list. The filename is supposed to be below listdir/control. In the case it's a "boolean", the contents of a file does not matter, the mere presence of it, will set the variable to "true". If it's a "normal" file, the first line will be used as value, leaving line 2 and forward ready for commentary etc. If it's possible to specify several entries (one pr. line), it's marked "list". If the file's entire content is used as value, it's marked "text". · listaddress (list) This file contains all addresses which mlmmj sees as listaddresses (see tocc below). The first one is the one used as the primary one, when mlmmj sends out mail. · closedlist (boolean) Is the list is open or closed. If it's closed subscription and unsubscription via mail is disabled. · closedlistsub (boolean) Closed for subscription. Unsubscription is possible. · moderated (boolean) If this file is present, the emailaddresses in the file listdir/control/moderators will act as moderators for the list. · submod (list) If this file is present, subscription will be moderated by owner(s). If there are emailaddresses in this file, then these will be used instead of owner. · tocc (boolean) If this file is present, the list address does not have to be in the To: or Cc: header of the email to the list. · subonlypost (boolean) When this file is present, only people who are subscribed to the list, are allowed to post to it. The check is made against the "From:" header. · modonlypost (boolean) When this file is present, only people listed in listdir/control/moderators are allowed to post to it. The check is made against the "From:" header. · modnonsubposts (boolean) When this file is present, all postings from people who are not allowed to post to the list will be moderated instead of denied. · modreqlife (normal) This specifies how long in seconds a mail awaits moderation before it's discarded. Defaults to 604800 seconds, which is 7 days. · prefix (normal) The prefix for the Subject: line of mails to the list. This will alter the Subject: line, and add a prefix if it's not present elsewhere. · owner (list) The emailaddresses in this file (1 pr. line) will get mails to email@example.com · customheaders (list) These headers are added to every mail coming through. This is the place you want to add Reply-To: header in case you want such. · delheaders (list) In this file is specified *ONE* headertoken to match pr. line. If the file consists of: Received: Message-ID: Then all occurences of these headers in incoming list mail will be deleted. "From " and "Return-Path:" are deleted no matter what. · access (list) If this file exists, all headers of a post to the list is matched against the rules. The first rule to match wins. See README.access for syntax and examples. · memorymailsize (normal) Here is specified in bytes how big a mail can be and still be prepared for sending in memory. It's greatly reducing the amount of write system calls to prepare it in memory before sending it, but can also lead to denial of service attacks. Default is 16k (16384 bytes). · addtohdr (boolean) When this file is present, a To: header including the recipients emailaddress will be added to outgoing mail. Recommended usage is to remove existing To: headers with delheaders (see above) first. · relayhost (normal) The host specified (IP address or hostname, both works) in this file will be used for relaying the mail sent to the list. Defaults to 127.0.0.1. · notifysub (boolean) If this file is present, the owner(s) will get a mail with the address of someone sub/unsubscribing to a mailinglist. · notifymod (boolean) If this file is present, the poster (based on the envelope from) will get a mail when their post is being moderated. · digestinterval (normal) This file specifies how many seconds will pass before the next digest is sent. Defaults to 604800 seconds, which is 7 days. · digestmaxmails (normal) This file specifies how many mails can accumulate before digest sending is triggered. Defaults to 50 mails, meaning that if 50 mails arrive to the list before digestinterval have passed, the digest is delivered. · bouncelife (normal) This specifies how long in seconds an address can bounce before it's unsubscribed. Defaults to 432000 seconds, which is 5 days. · noarchive (boolean) If this file exists, the mail won't be saved in the archive but simply deleted. · nosubconfirm (boolean) If this file exists, no mail confirmation is needed to subscribe to the list. This should in principle never ever be used, but there are times on local lists etc. where this is useful. HANDLE WITH CARE! · noget (boolean) If this file exists, then retrieving old posts with +get-N is disabled. · subonlyget (boolean) If this file exists, then retrieving old posts with +get-N is only possible for subscribers. The above mentioned 'noget' have precedence. · verp (normal) Control how Mlmmj does VERP (variable envelope return path). If this tunable does not exist, Mlmmj will send a message to the SMTP server for each recipient, with an appropriate envelope return path, i.e. it will handle VERP itself. If the tunable does exist, Mlmmj will instead divide the recipients into groups (the maximum number of recipients in a group can be controlled by the maxverprecips tunable) and send one message to the SMTP server per group. The content of this tunable allows VERP to be handled by the SMTP server. If the tunable contains "postfix", Mlmmj will make Postfix use VERP by adding XVERP=-= to the MAIL FROM: line. If it contains something else, that text will be appended to the MAIL FROM: line. If it contains nothing, VERP will effectively be disabled, as neither Mlmmj nor the SMTP server will do it. · maxverprecips (normal) How many recipients per mail delivered to the SMTP server. Defaults to 100. · notoccdenymails (boolean) · noaccessdenymails (boolean) · nosubonlydenymails (boolean) · nomodonlydenymails (boolean) These switches turns off whether mlmmj sends out notification about postings being denied due to the listaddress not being in To: or Cc: (see 'tocc'), when it was rejected due to an access rule (see 'access') or whether it's a subscribers/moderators only posting list (see 'subonlypost/modonlypost'). · nosubmodmails (boolean) This switch turns off whether mlmmj sends out notification about subscription being moderated to the person requesting subscription (see 'submod'). · smtpport (normal) In this file a port other than port 25 for connecting to the relayhost can be specified. · delimiter (normal) This specifies what to use as recipient delimiter for the list. Default is "+". · nodigesttext (boolean) If this file exists, digest mails won't have a text part with a thread summary. · nodigestsub (boolean) If this file exists, subscription to the digest version of the mailinglist will be denied. (Useful if you don't want to allow digests and notify users about it). · nonomailsub (boolean) If this file exists, subscription to the nomail version of the mailinglist will be denied. (Useful if you don't want to allow nomail and notify users about it). · maxmailsize (normal) With this option the maximal allowed size of incoming mails can be specified. · nomaxmailsizedenymails (boolean) If this is set, no reject notifications caused by violation of maxmailsize will be sent. · nolistsubsemail (boolean) If this is set, the LISTNAME+list@ functionality for requesting an email with the subscribers for owner is disabled. · staticbounceaddr (normal) If this is set to firstname.lastname@example.org, the bounce address (Return-Path:) will be fixed to email@example.com in case you need to disable automatic bounce handling. · ifmodsendonlymodmoderate (boolean) If this file is present, then mlmmj in case of moderation checks the envelope from, to see if the sender is a moderator, and in that case only send the moderation mails to that address. In practice this means that a moderator sending mail to the list won't bother all the other moderators with his mail. · footer (text) The content of this file is appended to mail sent to the list. · notmetoo (boolean) If this file is present, mlmmj attempts to exclude the sender of a post from the distribution list for that post so people don't receive copies of their own posts. · smtphelo (normal) When this file is present, it contains the hostname to send in the SMTP EHLO or HELO command. Otherwise the machine hostname is used.
