Description Heiko Wundram 2008-08-07 10:14:13 UTC
The documented way to subscribe to the gentoo mailinglists is currently broken; the mails are being bounced as undeliverable.

The documentation states: "Note: Replace 'listname' with the actual name of the list that you want to subscribe to, e.g.: to subscribe to the gentoo-user mailing list."

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send a mail to <listname>, specifically in this case.

Actual Results:  
The mail returns as a rejection from the remote mailserver.

Expected Results:  
The mail should be passed, and the source email address used to subscribe to the list.
