Mailman configuration

Since I got it to work, configuration is the next step.
Good link is here, and here, with detailed description of all the interface links.

Address from which you can administer your mailman : http://IP-address-of-your-server/mailman/admin

Every mailman list has its own web page for administration : http://IP-address-of-your-server/mailman/admin/name-of-the-list
It requires list administrator password.

Address for mailing list moderator login (moderator has less power than administrator) : http://IP-address-of-your-server/mailman/admindb/mailing-list-name
Requires moderator password.

Access to mailing list for ordinary users : http://IP-address-of-your-server/mailman/listinfo/mailing-list-name

Here is how you can set up the following (as administrator, of course) : “every mail from my.own.domain, and all its under-domains” :
^[^@]+@(.*\.)?my\.own\.domain$
And how to write “every mail that is NOT from this domain my.own.domain” :
^[^@]+@(?!my\.own\.domain$)

Where on server are mailman files for mailing lists : /var/lib/mailman

Good link and if you are interested how to block reception of all messages except from only one domain, and how to post messages from that one domain with no delay or moderation. That is under the option “Privacy options”/”Sender filters”

Where are the files :
Installed software package: /usr/lib/mailman/
CGI: /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
Configuration documentation: /usr/share/doc/mailman/
Log files: /usr/log/mailman/
User data: /var/lib/mailman/
Runtime lock file: /var/lock/mailman/
Location of process id file: /var/run/mailman/
Configuration files located in this directory: /etc/mailman/
Main configuration file : mm_cfg.py
What is not defined in that file, is set here : /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/Defaults.py
Start script: /etc/init.d/mailman
Admin commands: /usr/sbin/

If in the reject message (which is automatically sent) you get the wrong mail address, the whole message can be set here : Privacy options -> Sender filters -> nonmember_rejection_notice
