Discussion lists


#1

Is anyone else having problems with their discussion lists being down? Mine have been down since about 8pm, pst last night. (1/3)

I think I see what’s wrong. I’ll get someone to fix it.

My lists still aren’t working although a message from last night just came through again. Hopefully, you can kick start things, Will. :slight_smile:

Hopefully all worky now. An announcement should be forthcoming.

I’m new to dreamhost and discussion lists. Is this delay something frequent, or just a fluke? I noticed a 24 hour delay in the list I just created.

Thanks, Manu

It was a fluke. To be more specific, the partition that all of the mailman stuff resides on wasn’t mounted due to a typo in a configuration file. I corrected this.


#9

Thanks. I don’t want to seem ungrateful, but the lists appear to be down again. I was so glad to find professional discussion lists for the price.

Everything looks OK to me. Can you be more specific about the problem you’re having?


#11

Gladly. I’ve been setting up three lists in the past few days. E-mails got delayed by 24 hours over the weekend, flowed fine on Monday, but today nothing is getting through, other things being equal (ie I didn’t change the settings on my lists, or at least on two of the lists).

I’m not aware of any specific problems with either mailing list server (though of course I could be wrong). Please submit a support request with more specific details (the listname(s) and domain(s) you’re having problems with), the email address which isn’t receiving messages, and any other pertinant info.

Question:

So I set up a discussion list through the Dreamhost panel. The address was coffee@lists.mydomain.com. However, for whatever reason, the name of this list was automatically designated as ‘coffee-mydomain.com’. That’s not really a big problem, but when I send out subscription notices, the recipients are told that the list is located at ‘coffee-mydomain.com@lists.mydomain.com’, which is wrong. Is there any way I can just prevent the whole mailing list process from appending ‘-mydomain.com’ at all?
