Mailing-list of all new posts in the OpenFOAM forums
 
People who want to receive email copies of all new messages posted in the OpenFOAM forums can subscribe to the following mailing-lists:
  1. OpenFOAM - new posts in all OpenFOAM forums.
  2. OpenFOAM News & Announcements - new posts in the News & Annoucements forums.

Currently I get Postings to the Bug-Group via the openfoam-bugs AND the openfoam-list. Which doesn't bother me, it's just not according to the description. (I would keep it this way: whoever signed up to the "high-volume" openfoam-list won't mind the extra messages)

That sounds strange. I just double checked the settings and the bugs forum is only set to forward messages to the openfoam-bugs mailing list, not to the general openfoam mailing-list. I will sign up myself to check.

For instance this post http://www.cfd-online.com/Forums/ope...tml#post220881 I got twice. Once with To: openfoam-bugs@cfd-online.com and once with To: openfoam@cfd-online.com. Don't know about openfoam-news (should this posting go there?)

Yep, you are correct. I'm subscribed to both lists now and also get dual copies of bug messages. Very strange and I'm confused about how this can occur. I'm sure there is a trivial misstake somewhere that I just need to find. I'll repost when I find the cause. Thanks for the bug report.

I'm used to this kinds of "bug" now. After I clicked the updated threads of "openfoam",it will also display the threads of "openfoam bugs".

found the problem
 
Now I know what the problem is. The mailing functionality in vBulletin that we are using for the mailing-lists is active for the main OpenFOAM forum and that makes it also active for all sub-forums (bugs and news forums also). The simplest way to change this is to move all threads from the OpenFOAM forum to the OpenFOAM>OpenFOAM forum and turn off postings in OpenFOAM and activate postings in OpenFOAM>OpenFOAM. I'm not sure if this is what we want though.

Perhaps it is better to have one mailing-list (openfoam), which distributes all messages from all OpenFOAM forums, including the bugs and the news forums. Anyone who wants to receive all posts from the other OpenFOAM forums will also likely want the bugs and the news forums. Then we can have two smaller mailing-lists for the bugs and the news forums for those who only want those.

What do you think?

I fully agree. Wanting to follow discussions about OF but not know the bugs would be .... strange. Knowing only the bugs might be of interest for people who only maintain but do not work with a OF-installation. Similar reasoning for the News

If they all get sent from the same mailer & header can we still filter on where they come from? I do want to be able to put them into three separate folders.

pete July 3, 2009 03:26

The subject contains the sub-forum each message was posted to, so you can filter the emails based on that.
