Overview

django-mailman is a simple way to manage one or more mailman mailing lists which are not installed on your server. It uses the webinterface to subscribe or unsubscribe a mailinglist member. Additional you are able to request a list of all subscribed members for a specific mailing list.

Requirements

django-mailman is tested and works with mailman version 2.1.5. It's possible that mailman also works with the 2.1.x series, but I guess it wouldn't work with the 3.x series which is under development at the moment

django-mailman requires Django 1.4 or later.

Configuration

First of all, you must add this project to your list of INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
'django.contrib.auth',
'django.contrib.contenttypes',
'django.contrib.sessions',
'django.contrib.sites',
...
'django_mailman',
...

)


Run manage.py syncdb. This creates the appropriate tables in your database that are necessary for operation.

Usage

from django_mailman.models import List

Create new List

Code:

list_name = 'testlist'
list_pwd = 'pwd'
list_email = 'testlist@mydomain.com'
list_url = 'http://mailman.listdomain.com'
list_encoding = 'iso-8859-1' # must match the encoding of your mailman installation

main_url=list_url, encoding=list_encoding)


Subscribe new member

list.subscribe('membername@maildomain.com', 'first-name', 'last-name')

Unsubscribe member

list.unsubscribe('membername@maildomain.com')

Show a list of all subscribed members

list.get_all_members()

This method will return a list of all members in the following format: [[u'first-name last-name', u'membername@maildomain.com']]
