Announcement lists notify on join


#1

when you set emailit=1 in the form for the announcement list signup it does not send an email to me at that address when someone signs up. I have an announcement list set up, signups and sending mails work but I do not receive the notification when people join. I can even send a message form my private account to announcements@domain.com and recive it fine.

the listname as shown on the dreamhost control panel is announcements@domain.com. By default the listname has to be something@domain.com. The directions say it will be sent to the listname@yourdomain.com. Does this mean it would be sent to announcements@domain.com@domain.com. of course that doesn’t work.

OK, nevermind. I figured it out. At one point I changed the list email address and just now noticed a note that says if you want to change the address you need to completely delete the list and create a new one. It would be good to put a note in the wiki too.

thanks anyway.
