4.71. Accessing the web admin interface or private archives via a framed page requires constant reauthorization (e.g., asking me to re-enter my password).
This may be a cookie issue. If so, it affects Microsoft Internet Explorer and possibly other browsers.
If the main page's URL is in one domain and the Mailman page URL opened in a frame is in a different domain, MSIE considers Mailman's cookie to be a 'third party' cookie and rejects it unless Internet Options->Privacy is set to "Low" or lower or the domain of the main page is added to allowed sites.
See also FAQ 4.45 at 4.45 The admin web interface is not saving my changes and may or may not ask me to re-enter my password -- what is wrong?, FAQ 4.65 4.65 Admin Web interface requires reauthentication (e.g., re-entering the password) at every step and doesn't save changes., and FAQ 4.69 at 4.69 Why aren't my mm_cfg.py settings for DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN, DEFAULT_URL_HOST and DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST effective?.
Note that even if you fix your browser for this, in the case of archives at least, other users will encounter the same problem. Thus, framing Mailman's pages from another domain is probably not a good idea.
