Hello. I'm a new subscriber. I am not a list manager, just an end-user so I may
not be using the correct terminology here so bear with me.
One the lists I belong to has the annoying habit of attempting to process any
command which appears in the user messages sent to the list, resulting in a
bounce to the list admin (e.g. if a user's message contains the word
"subscribe" as the first word on a line, the list server will attempt to
process it and the message gets bounced). For some reason, this does not bother
the list admin (apparently she's gotten used to it and hasn't bothered to look
into it further). I know this isn't the correct behavior because it only occurs
on this one list (I belong to a few others that also use the majordomo system
and this works fine). The problem for us user's is the admin typically loses
Does anyone have any ideas why this would be happening? I've looked through the
list configuration variables and the FAQ and can't see anything obvious
(remember, I'm only a user, not a manager). Could they have possibly set up
both the subscription address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) and the mailing
list address (e.g. email@example.com) to handle commands? (could it really
be that simple???) The list is using version 1.93 (please don't just tell me to
upgrade to 1.94 :->).
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
