About: Mailman 3 - The GNU Mailing List Management System. Hint: Mailman 3 is architected and released quite differently than Mailman 2.
  Fossies Dox: mailman-3.3.5.tar.bz2  ("unofficial" and yet experimental doxygen-generated source code documentation)  

mailman Documentation

Some Fossies usage hints in advance:

  1. To see the Doxygen generated documentation please click on one of the items in the steelblue colored "quick index" bar above or use the side panel at the left which displays a hierarchical tree-like index structure and is adjustable in width.
  2. If you want to search for something by keyword rather than browse for it you can use the client side search facility (using Javascript and DHTML) that provides live searching, i.e. the search results are presented and adapted as you type in the Search input field at the top right.
  3. Doxygen doesn't incorporate all member files but just a definable subset (basically the main project source code files that are written in a supported language). So to search and browse all member files you may visit the Fossies mailman-3.3.5.tar.bz2 contents page and use the Fossies standard member browsing features (also with source code highlighting and additionally with optional code folding).

Mailman - The GNU Mailing List Management System





Copyright (C) 1998-2019 by the Free Software Foundation, Inc.

This is GNU Mailman, a mailing list management system distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL) version 3 or later. The name of this software is spelled "Mailman" with a leading capital 'M' but with a lower case second 'm'. Any other spelling is incorrect.

Technically speaking, you are reading the documentation for Mailman Core. The full Mailman 3 suite includes a web user interface called Postorius, a web archiver called HyperKitty, and a few other components. If you're looking for instructions on installing the full suite, read that documentation.

Mailman is written in Python which is available for all platforms that Python is supported on, including GNU/Linux and most other Unix-like operating systems (e.g. Solaris, *BSD, MacOSX, etc.). Mailman is not supported on Windows, although web and mail clients on any platform should be able to interact with Mailman just fine.

The Mailman home page is:

and there is a community driven wiki at
