2.1.16 (16-Oct-2013) New Features - There is a new list attribute from_is_list to either rewrite the From: header of posts replacing the posters address with that of the list or wrap the message in an outer message From: the list for compatability with DMARC and or ADSP. There is a new mm_cfg.py setting DEFAULT_FROM_IS_LIST to control the default for new lists, and the existing REMOVE_DKIM_HEADERS setting has been extended to allow removing those headers only for certain from_is_list lists. This feature must be enabled by setting ALLOW_FROM_IS_LIST to Yes in mm_cfg.py. See the description of these settings in Defaults.py for more detail. This feature is experimental in 2.1.16, and it is subject to change or to become just one of the two methods in a subsequent release. People interested in this feature are encouraged to try it and report their experiences to the mailman-users@python.org list. - There is a new DISPLAY_HELD_SUMMARY_SORT_BUTTONS setting which if set in mm_cfg.py will display a set of radio buttons in the admindb held message summary to select how the held messages are sorted and grouped for display. The exact setting determines the default grouping and sorting. See the description in Defaults.py for details. - Setting digest_size_threshhold to zero now means no digests will be sent based on size instead of a digest being sent with every post. (LP: #558274) - There is a new mm_cfg.py setting SUBSCRIBE_FORM_SECRET which will put a dynamically generated, hidden hash in the listinfo subscribe form and check it upon submission. Setting this will prevent automated processes (bots) from successfully POSTing web subscribes without first retrieving and parsing the form from the listinfo page. The form must also be submitted no later than FORM_LIFETIME nor no earlier than SUBSCRIBE_FORM_MIN_TIME after retrieval. Note that enabling this will break any static subscribe forms on your site. See the description in Defaults.py for more info. (LP: #1082746) - add_members now has an option to add members with mail delivery disabled by admin. (LP: #1070574) - IncomingRunner now logs rejected messages to the vette log. (LP: #1068837) - The name of the mailmanctl master lock file is now congigurable via the mm_cfg.py setting MASTER_LOCK_FILE.
