thias/mailman — version 0.1.4 May 24th 2013



This module manages the main Mailman configuration. In addition, you will need other modules to provide :

  • The web server configuration needed for the web interface.
  • The mail transport agent configuration needed to receive and send emails.

You can use the default puppet maillist type to create and delete lists once the instance is up and running.
