The configuration file format is simple: comments (starting with a hash sign
#) and blank lines are ignored. All other lines have two or three fields
on them. The first is the list name and is what innd uses (i.e. the site
field of the entry in the newsfeeds file). The second field is the
actual e-mail address to send the article to. The third field is optional:
it sets the envelope-from address (for instance a list members address;
if not set, it defaults to the news user).
In e-mail messages, the To: header will have the mailing-list address
(i.e. the second field). Besides, news2mail strips most article headers
from the article before mailing.
In newsfeeds, the channel feed should look like:
and for each mailing-list, you only have to add to newsfeeds an entry list
Please note the use of Ap and the exclusion of the list owner domain
to protect the list from feeding back new arrivals from the list.
The site name used in the newfeeds entry for a mailing-list (above
list-big-red-ants) must be the same as the first field in an entry in
news2mail.cf. For instance:
# Newsfeeds-name List-to-address [List-sender-address]
list-big-red-ants email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org
