We are running the Sympa mailing list manager - yay! There are some issues to be fixed or reconfigured though.


Plan to Migrate lists 

MX record

Still points to mail.geant.net, which is a single Exim instance in Cambridge and does not do IPv6. Should be changed to the French MX service that David knows about.

Default configuration changes

Some default list configuration items should be changed:


We should create a custom List Type entry to reflect our common defaults. Now we have created 100+ lists and need to go in and edit them all manually...

DKIM and DMARC breakage

Not sure what causes this, but sending a message from a  yahoo.com account to the list causes it to fail DKIM/DMARC for (at least) Google receipients


User interface issues



You have been delegated the responsability of list owner by linda.ness@geant.org for list gn4-1-na1-t5@lists.geant.org

The list homepage: https://lists.geant.org/sympa/info/gn4-1-na1-t5 

Owner and moderator guide: https://lists.geant.org/sympa/help/admin

 The word ‘Responsibility’ in first line is mis-typed



Criteria for setting up lists
