[Micronet] calmail mail lists - aliases

Joyce Martin

Hi

Is it possible to create an alias for a calmail mail list address?  We have a mail list which has an address that is hard to remember.  Could we set up an alias as an additional address?

 

thx

Probably the easiest way would be to just create a new list, with one subscriber, which is the address of the hard-to-remember list....

Anthony Roybal
Joyce,

I think you'll need to set "Require explicit destination" to "no" on the mailing list with the hard to remember name.

This should be it:

Advanced:Recipient Filters and set "Require explicit destination" to "No".

Re: [Micronet] calmail mail lists - aliases

Graham Patterson
In reply to this post by Joyce Martin

If you have to chain two lists:
If the target list is a closed (members only) list, you _may_ have to
make the forwarding list a member. If you do this, _turn off mail
delivery for the forwarding list_. Otherwise the lists will try to loop.
Mailman and Calmail should catch it, but you will be very unpopular if
you get it wrong. Really.

The explicit destination option usually comes into play with BCC. The
idea is that it is bad form to hide wide circulation of a message from
the originator.

By and large, lists with list members is not wise if you can avoid it.

Best option:

I'd duplicate the list with the new name, grab the roster list from the
old list for a bulk import, and just switch. If the list name is that
hard to remember, nobody should complain at the change!

I had to do this recently.


Graham

Thanks for the tip!  I think my conclusion from the experiment is the same

Subject: Re: [Micronet] calmail mail lists - aliases


If you have to chain two lists:
If the target list is a closed (members only) list, you _may_ have to make
the forwarding list a member. If you do this, _turn off mail delivery for
the forwarding list_. Otherwise the lists will try to loop.
Mailman and Calmail should catch it, but you will be very unpopular if you
get it wrong. Really.

The explicit destination option usually comes into play with BCC. The idea
is that it is bad form to hide wide circulation of a message from the
originator.

By and large, lists with list members is not wise if you can avoid it.

Best option:

I'd duplicate the list with the new name, grab the roster list from the old
list for a bulk import, and just switch. If the list name is that hard to
remember, nobody should complain at the change!

I had to do this recently.
