Mailman membership reminder


Here's a little script you can add to your crontab, to periodically email the administrators of each mailman mailing list both the list of current members and the mailing-list's full configuration. This gives you both an audit trail of membership and the ability to restore mailing lists from the backup files in case your webhost goes awry.

mailman-reminder (Perl script)

Edit root's crontab with the command

# **crontab -e**

and add something like this:

0 3 1 * * perl /root/

Which will run the script at 03:00 on the first day of each month.
