    Default Mass-emailing people?

    Hello,

    We need to send an email to everyone in a list (of email addresses). Ideally, we want it to come from a noreply@ address...

    However, I can't seem to figure out how to do this in one go. If I create a noreply@ email account, there doesn't seem to be an easy way to add ALL the addresses from a specific address book in one go.

    If I create a distribution list at noreply@, the recipients can only too easily reply to that email address and thus spam everyone else on that list which is VERY undesirable.

    Thoughts? I realise the best way is to use a proper 3rd party app like phplist (which I'm looking at now), but we do need to send an certain email out this Friday which is a bit too short notice for this.

    TIA!

    You can create a distribution list that can't be mailed to by external users (or users of your choice), check the wiki article on postfix restrictions. Does that do what you need?

    Hmmm... yes, that sounds exactly like what I need, but it doesn't seem to work at all...(emails from 'outside' are still getting through to the distribution list I created)

    I've checked the discussion page on the wiki & made the change mentioned in note #2 to no avail.

    Which logs would display errors from this? Are the notes up to date for ZCS 4.5?

    Did you do a 'postfix reload'?

    Si! Both before doing the change mentioned in note #2 & again after.

    I'd go through the wiki steps again and check you've entered the correct information. That solution does work.
