NAME
mlmmj-sub - subscribe address to a mailinglist run by mlmmj SYNOPSIS
mlmmj-sub -L /path/to/list [-a john@doe.org | -m str] [-c] [-C] [-d | -n] [-f] [-h] [-q] [-r | -R] [-s] [-U] [-V] -a: Email address to subscribe -c: Send welcome mail (unless requesting confirmation) -C: Request mail confirmation (unless switching versions) -d: Subscribe to digest version of the list -f: Force subscription (do not moderate) -h: This help -L: Full path to list directory -m: Moderation string -n: Subscribe to nomail version of the list -q: Be quiet (don't notify owner about the subscription) -r: Behave as if request arrived via email (internal use) -R: Behave as if confirmation arrived via email (internal use) -s: Don't send a mail to the subscriber if already subscribed -U: Don't switch to the user id of the listdir owner -V: Print version DESCRIPTION
This utility is used to subscribe people to the specified mailinglist. It will write the email address in a file with the name of the beginning letter of the email address getting subscribed in the <listdir>/subscribers.d/ directory. The digest version of the list is a list version where people receive postings to the list periodically (e.g. once a day) or when a large number of posts have accumulated. Digest subscribers are in the <listdir>/digesters.d/ directory. The nomail version of the list is a list version where people are subscribed like usual, but they won't receive any postings to the list. This is useful for people who read the mailinglist through a news gateway, but want to be able to post to the list. Nomail subscribers are in the <listdir>/nomailsubs.d/ directory. Unless the -U switch is used it will switch its user id to the user id owning the list directory. This is done to make sure that new files created are having correct permissions. If the given address is already subscribed to the list, but to a different version, the subscription is switched to that version, and con- firmation and moderation are bypassed. If the address is already subscribed to the version requested, a mail is sent to the subscriber, unless the -s switch is used. Subscription may be moderated (if <listdir>/control/submod exists) unless the -f switch is given. When a subscription is permitted by a gatekeeper, welcome messages are sent to the subscriber as usual, regardless of options given now. To ensure subscription is silent from the point of view of the subscriber, use -f, but neither -c nor -C. To inhibit notification of the owner, use -q. Use of -s is recommended to ensure you don't spam already-subscribed addresses by accident. SEE ALSO

NAME
mlmmj-process - process mail for an mlmmj managed mailinglist SYNOPSIS
mlmmj-process -L /path/to/list -m /path/to/mail [-h] [-P] [-V] -h: This help -L: Full path to list directory -m: Full path to mail file -P: Don't execute mlmmj-send (debugging only) -V: Print version DESCRIPTION
This is the binary which processes a mail. Examples of what such processing is: o Access control Using the access rules specified in <listdir>/control/access to perform access control to the list. This is done before headers are stripped, so one can create allow rules based on headers that are later stripped. o Header stripping Headers specified in <listdir>/control/delheaders are deleted from the mail. o Header addition Headers specified in <listdir>/control/customheaders are added to the mail. This could be headers like List-ID: or Reply-To: o List control In case there's a mail with a recipient delimiter it's not a regular list mail. Processing of these happens in mlmmj-receive as well. Examples of such are subscription requests, mails to owner etc. It will base it's recipient delimiter detection on the Delivered-To: header if present. If not, the To: header is used. o Moderation If the list is moderated, it will happen in mlmmj-process. When processing is done, it will invoke the needed binary according to whatever mail it is. If it's a subscription request it will invoke mlmmj-sub, if it's a regular list mail it will invoke mlmmj-send. SEE ALSO
