Announcing the release of Managing Mailing Lists with Mailman  
"Managing Mailing Lists with Mailman," the second of two video courses I recorded last month for lynda.com, the online training company, has just been released. Here's the course description:
Mailman is an open-source alternative to commercial mailing list managers and it's administered through an accessible web-based interface. This course will show you how to administer and operate Mailman, and start maintaining subscriber lists of your own. Author David D. Levine covers navigating in Mailman, configuring replies and notifications, adding and removing subscribers, and setting up the interface where subscribers view their list options. He also covers adjusting privacy controls, moderating posts, controlling archiving, and managing lists via email.

Topics include:
  • Creating lists
  • Setting basic list attributes
  • Managing mass subscriptions and renewals
  • Sending and receiving lists messages via email
  • Using Mailman's digest mode
  • Viewing and managing archives
  • Setting max message size and other options
  • Controlling bounce processing
  • Approving and rejecting posts by email
  • Managing attachments and formatted messages
