Here is some of my experience dealing with mailman. I am tying to set my mailman to be a newsletter /distribution list i add some user email to the member list and

– I want the user on member list not be able to replay the mail that was sent to mailing list.

– And i also did not want the user member list cannot directly email the mailing list.

– And i also don’t want any of non member be able to send email.

After install mailman and create the mailing list first of all you need to set mailing list on the picture below i set adittest, once mail send to the mailing list by authorize email address we need to get rid off of the Reply-To:  from the mail header  You need to go to General Options and set the first_strip_reply_to to yes

Then we set some Notifications for theailing member list, we don’t want the mailing list member to have password reminder , welcome notice etc

We also want to add some email to our mailing list membership,  you need to go to Membership Management -> [Mass Subscription] .  We can set how to subscribe the email, Send welcome messages  and Send notifications of new subscriptions or not.

After you add the member list, you see that the moderation(mod) flag was automaticaly added by default the advantage of this flag if one of the member decide to mail the mailing list directly it will be moderate first like shown below
