Mailman 3 documentation

Mailman 3 is still pretty new, and most of the docs are built with the packages: Links to all the docs

Unlike Mailman 2, Mailman 3 has been divided into a number of parts:

  • Mailman Suite refers to the collection of related Mailman projects that provide all the pieces of a typical mailing list management setup.

  • Mailman Core is the part that delivers the emails and handles the mailing list and user data

  • Postorius is the web interface that allows users (list members, list admins, moderators) to change their user settings and the settings for their lists.

  • HyperKitty is the archiver which provides a web interface to access GNU Mailman v3 archives as well as ways interact with the lists. It can behave a little like a web forum, for those who prefer not to use email.

  • Mailman HyperKitty is a plugin for Mailman Core to communicate with HyperKitty.

  • Django Mailman3 is a set of Django libraries and templates common to Postorius and HyperKitty. It is new with Mailman 3.1.

  • MailmanClient is the library that provides official Python bindings for the GNU Mailman 3 REST API. This allows you to write your own front end or scripts for interacting with Mailman. (It's also what Postorius uses to interact with Mailman Core.)

A typical install would use all of these pieces together, but they're intended to be modular so you could replace a single piece if you had specific needs.
