3.26. Is there an easy way to discard all messages waiting to be reviewed?
First, open your bookmark manager and add the following link as an URL:
Now visit the moderation page, and visit the bookmark. All the messages will be marked to discard, just press the button.
For Mailman 2.1.5, we find the following update which is mentioned in the mailman-2.1.5/NEWS file:
- The admindb page has a checkbox that allows you to discard all held messages that are marked Defer. On heavy lists with lots of spam holds, this makes clearing them much faster.
Another strategy would just be to ignore spam messages, relying on letting them be culled automatically according to your max_days_to_hold setting.
If you want to allow all messages rather than discard them, see How can I accept (allow) all held messages?
