I'd like to create (and use) a Distribution List.
My setup is slightly complicated, though not I think unusual.
I'm actually running IMAP to access email on my server
from my laptop.
I am running Fedora-13 on my laptop, with kdepim-4.4.4,
but am running CentOS-5.5 on my server, with kdepim-3.5.4.
I have a very similar setup. However I use IMAP only for mail access - not to
serve addresses and calendar. If you are serving them, your experience will
be different to mine.
I see that in KMail on my laptop,
Folder=>Mailing List Management is greyed-out.
Strange - it isn't here.
At the same time, Message=>New Message to Mailing-list
is not greyed-out, though clicking on it just seems to bring up
the standard New Message window.
Is there actually any way of setting up a distribution list
within this setup?
Assuming that your addressbook is akonadi-controlled, simply Add a Group. You
can only add addresses that are already in your addressbook, but if you start
to type a name you should get a dropdown list of autocompleting addresses.
Select from that list to add them.
If not, could I run mailman or a similar distribution list program
on my server, given that I am not running a mail server?
Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.
Now you've confused me. Are you not running a mail server on your server? I
run dovecot on mine. However, this doesn't really matter, since the
distribution list (in the old sense) is purely an addressbook function, now
If you need any more details on the Groups function, just ask, though there
isn't much more to be said.
