Installing ezmlm with vpopmail
peculiar is host to several mailing lists, using ezmlm-idx. This needs to continue working under vpopmail.
You’ll need to grab
ezmlm-idx-0.40.tar.gz from ftp.ezmlm.org.
Installation proceeds as described in the the
# cd /usr/local/src # tar xvfz ezmlm-0.53.tar.gz # tar xvfz ezmlm-idx-0.40.tar.gz # mv ezmlm-idx-0.40/* ezmlm-0.53 # cd ezmlm-0.53 # patch < idx.path # make clean # make # make man # make setup
This results in ezmlm being installed in the
/usr/local/bin/ezmlm directory, which is fine with me.
Creating a mailing list under vpopmail
This is actually relatively easy.
ezmlm-make should be invoked like this:
# /usr/local/bin/ezmlm/ezmlm-make ezmlm-make: usage: ezmlm-make [-+] [ -a..zA..Z03..9 ] dir dot local host
So we just need to create the mailing list inside the vpopmail directories:
# /usr/local/bin/ezmlm/ezmlm-make /home/vpopmail/domains/differentpla.test/list \ /home/vpopmail/domains/differentpla.test/.qmail-list \ list differentpla.test # chown -h vpopmail.vchkpw /home/vpopmail/domains/differentpla.test/.qmail-list* # chown -R vpopmail.vchkpw /home/vpopmail/domains/differentpla.test/list
Obviously, add whichever switches you need to
And this works fine. Users can subscribe by sending email to the
firstname.lastname@example.org address, and it all works as expected.
