Mailman and Google Apps For Your Domain conflict
Posted by ark, ,
the recent addition of x-beenthere mail headers for Google Apps For Your Domain (gafyd)  groups stopped my mailman setup working. I thought I'd share it here in case anyone else is asking about it.

I have mailman running on server.example.com
I have example.com set up as google apps for your domain with gmail

I have a 'group' created to send mail from list@example.com to list@server.example.com

on my server I had list@server.example.com run the mailman binary with post to list whose email address is listed as list@exmaple.com

this was working perfectly however since Sep 17th 2009 gafyd is inserting x-beenthere: list@example.com which /var/lib/mailman/Mailman/Handlers/Approve.py detects as a loop and mailman mysteriously drops the message with a log in
/var/lib/mailman/logs/vette " (3902) Message discarded, msgid: ...."

the solution to me was to move the list to a non gafyd domain :(
