Mailing list addresses¶
Every mailing list has a number of addresses which are publicly available.
These are defined in the
>>> mlist = create_list('email@example.com')
The posting address is where people send messages to be posted to the mailing list. This is exactly the same as the fully qualified list name.
>>> print(mlist.fqdn_listname) firstname.lastname@example.org >>> print(mlist.posting_address) email@example.com
Messages to the mailing list’s no reply address always get discarded without prejudice.
>>> print(mlist.no_reply_address) firstname.lastname@example.org
The mailing list’s owner address reaches the human moderators.
>>> print(mlist.owner_address) email@example.com
The request address goes to the list’s email command robot.
>>> print(mlist.request_address) firstname.lastname@example.org
The bounces address accepts and processes all potential bounces.
>>> print(mlist.bounces_address) email@example.com
The join (a.k.a. subscribe) address is where someone can email to get added to the mailing list. The subscribe alias is a synonym for join, but it’s deprecated.
>>> print(mlist.join_address) firstname.lastname@example.org >>> print(mlist.subscribe_address) email@example.com
The leave (a.k.a. unsubscribe) address is where someone can email to get removed from the mailing list. The unsubscribe alias is a synonym for leave, but it’s deprecated.
>>> print(mlist.leave_address) firstname.lastname@example.org >>> print(mlist.unsubscribe_address) email@example.com
Email confirmation messages are sent when actions such as subscriptions need
to be confirmed. It requires that a cookie be provided, which will be
included in the local part of the email address. The exact format of this is
dependent on the
verp_confirm_format configuration variable.
>>> print(mlist.confirm_address('cookie')) firstname.lastname@example.org >>> print(mlist.confirm_address('wookie')) email@example.com >>> config.push('test config', """ ... [mta] ... verp_confirm_format: $address---$cookie ... """) >>> print(mlist.confirm_address('cookie')) firstname.lastname@example.org >>> config.pop('test config')
