[newbie] how to do a mailing list without a mailing list manager
i read that we can do a simple mailing list with /etc/aliases file
all-my-users " : include: /path/list_of_all_my_users"
i would like to have a dynamic list_of_all_my_users file (not static)
when i create a count on the computer, i don't want to to update the

Search for "protected recipients".

Thanks Grant. That solve half my problem. I found
This seems to apply to all aliases. Is it possible to apply this
setting to certain lists only based on part of the aliases file?

If I understand you correctly (which it is entirely possible that I'm
mis-understanding you) you are wanting to have a way to protect a subset
of your local aliases. Correct?
I don't think there is a way for Sendmail to break the alias list in to
multiple pieces. Even if you could, what would that gain you? Sendmail
will still have to check each recipient if it is protected or not.

Not sure if it's what your asking, but the Address Book application
allows you to create mailing lists, and there's lots of information in
the Address Book Help file. Once you've created the list, you can
select it and use it in the Mail application.
In article <rcYye...How to hightlight the mail from mailing lists
I have lots mails from a mailing list (lets take
email@example.com for example). So I want to have a clearer view
of them. I've looked up the manual already, seems that I should add
this to my .muttrc:

But what does "pattern" mean? Should I replaced it with the address
or a regexp or something else?
Thanks a lot.

...Why is SpamWatch is junking my mail from a mailing list?
Just in the last couple of days, Eudora 6.0 has been assigning spam
scores of 99 to all the mail from a certain mailing list I subscribe
to. I went into the UserJunkDB.txt file and removed all references to
the mailing list title, then rescored a bunch of the mail from that
list and it still posted it at a score of 99. I "unjunked" the
messages, and when I recalculated the scores, they still came up at
99. Apparently some keyword gets them marked as spam. Any ideas how I
can determine what words in a message get it marked as spam?
Along the same lines, is there any way to create a log file of what
filters cause a message to do what it does? Ideally, there would be a
record of the message Sender, Subject and what rule(s) it fired.

Same problem here. There have been flames over flames in environments
like openSUSE because they changed it. Such a feature (b) would really
be necessary now.

...[Eudora and Mail] Importing e-mail into Mail ?
After many years using Eudora, I think it is time to switch. Eudora is
corrupting its mailboxes, old messages tend to mix up and become unreadable.
This is unfortunate as otherwise Eudora does the right things for me.
So the questions are :
- which e-mail app do you recommend (on a PowerBook G4/667, 10.4.10) ?
- I am currently trying Mail; succeeded in importing the Eudora
mailboxes except the Inbox (1GB) -> how do I import it ???
Try Eudora Mailbox Cleaner.
Worked perfectly for me.

If everything else fails:
