Does not require the creation # of _any_ aliases to connect lists to your mail system. # # Bruce Perens, firstname.lastname@example.org, March 1999. # This is free software under the GNU General Public License. # # This script is meant to be called from ~mailman/.qmail-default . It catches # all mail to a virtual domain, in my case "lists.hams.com". It looks at the # recepient for each mail message and decides if the mail is addressed to a # valid list or not, and bounces the message with a helpful suggestion if it's # not addressed to a list. It decides if it is a posting, a list command, or # mail to the list administrator, by checking for the -admin, -owner, and # -request addresses. It will recognize a list as soon as the list is created, # there is no need to add _any_ aliases for any list. It recognizes mail to # postmaster, mailman-owner, abuse, mailer-daemon, root, and owner, and # routes those mails to MailmanOwner as defined in the configuration # variables, above. # # INSTALLATION: # # Install this file as ~mailman/qmail-to-mailman.py # # To configure a virtual domain to connect to mailman, create these files: # # ~mailman/.qmail-default # |preline @PYTHON@ @prefix@/mail-in.py # # /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains: # DOMAIN.COM:mailman # # Note: "preline" is a QMail program which ensures a Unix "From " header is # on the message. Archiving will break without this. # # Replace DOMAIN.COM above with the name of the domain to be connected to # Mailman. Note that _all_ mail to that domain will go to Mailman, so you # don't want to put the name of your main domain here. In my case, I created # lists.hams.com for Mailman, and I use hams.com as my regular domain. # # After you edit /var/qmail/control/virtualdomains, kill and restart qmail. # import sys, os, re, string def main(): os.nice(5) # Handle mailing lists at non-interactive priority. os.chdir(MailmanVar + "/lists") try: local = os.environ["LOCAL"] except: # This might happen if we're not using qmail. sys.stderr.write("LOCAL not set in environment?\n") sys.exit(100) local = string.lower(local) local = re.sub("^mailman-","",local) names = ("root", "postmaster", "mailer-daemon", "mailman-owner", "owner", "abuse") for i in names: if i == local: os.execv("/var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject", ("/var/qmail/bin/qmail-inject", MailmanOwner)) sys.exit(0) type = "post" types = (("-admin$", "bounces"), ("-bounces$", "bounces"), ("-join$", "join"), ("-leave$", "leave"), ("-owner$", "owner"), ("-request$", "request")) for i in types: if re.search(i,local): type = i local = re.sub(i,"",local) if os.path.exists(local): os.execv(MailmanHome + "/mail/mailman", (MailmanHome + "/mail/mailman", type, local)) else: bounce() sys.exit(111) def bounce(): bounce_message = """\ TO ACCESS THE MAILING LIST SYSTEM: Start your web browser on http://%s/ That web page will help you subscribe or unsubscribe, and will give you directions on how to post to each mailing list.\n""" sys.stderr.write(bounce_message % (os.environ["HOST"])) sys.exit(100) try: sys.exit(main()) except SystemExit, argument: sys.exit(argument) except Exception, argument: info = sys.exc_info() trace = info sys.stderr.write("%s %s\n" % (sys.exc_type, argument)) sys.stderr.write("Line %d\n" % (trace.tb_lineno)) sys.exit(111) # Soft failure, try again later.
