    Hi,

    It appears that the e-mails generated by Mailman on the 1st of each month (to remind list members of their passwords) are being sent from the wrong from address.

    For example, a member of the list example@domain1.com is receiving:

    From: newsletter@domain2.com
    On Behalf Of
    mailman-owner@localhost.cirrus.purplecloud.com
    Sent: 01 May 2005 05:00
    To: theuser@whatever.co.uk
    Subject: domain1.com mailing list memberships reminder

    This is a reminder, sent out once a month, about your
    domain1.com mailing list memberships. It includes your
    subscription info and how to use it to change it or unsubscribe from a list.
    ...


    Where newsletter@domain2.com is a different list on a different domain for a different customer.


    Is anyone else having this problem, or know of a fix?

    I get the impression mailman doesn't really like running accross multiple domains - the fact that two different domains can't each have a list with the same name is very annoying, hopefully Plesk will sort this out in a future version.

    I found that editing the /var/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py solved this problem as far as I can see;

    At the bottom of the file, the different virtualhosts are defined.
    All you have to do is insert

    Code:
    VIRTUAL_HOSTS.clear()
    right before

    Code:
    add_virtualhost(DEFAULT_URL_HOST, DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST)
    and restart Mailman.
    I seems to have solved the problem for me ;).

    Maer.
