If, like me, you look after some Mailman mailing lists you may have found the settings rather hard to come to grips with. The language mailman uses is definitely not very user-friendly (unless maybe you live, breathe and dream email server settings and configurations).
The GNU Mailing List Manager Mailman is free software for managing electronic mail discussion and e-newsletter lists. Mailman is integrated with the web, making it easy for users to manage their accounts and for list owners to administer their lists. Mailman supports built-in archiving, automatic bounce processing, content filtering, digest delivery, spam filters, and more.
In the search for some plain language help on a way to strip all attachments to a mailing list I’ve found these important resources.
The Mailman Home page has links and documentation. The instructions seem to be a repeat of the impenetrable offerings within the Mailman interface. Links are there for various Mailan-related mailing lists and their archives, although I was unable to reach the Listowners archive I wanted to view.
There is a searchable archive of the Mailman Users list which seems to be a busy list for those running Mailman lists.
The Mailman FAQ Wizard didn’t handle my two-word search for “strip attachments” at all well, but a search on “attachments” came up with a plainly written answer.
The UVa Information Technology and Communication Mailman List Configuration Options was also extremely helpful, again with plain language information.
