All messages posted on a listname mailing list are stored in the listname Mailbox in the list owner Account. When a digest is being composed, the posted messages are retrieved from that Mailbox. This Mailbox also serves as an archive for all posted messages, and this archive can be searched via the user Web interface.
Each time after a digest is composed, the Mailbox is checked and the oldest posted messages are removed to keep the archive Mailbox size within the specified limits.
Maximum Archive Size: This setting specifies the maximum size of the archive Mailbox. After a digest is generated, the new archive file can be generated or the oldest messages can be removed from the Mailbox to keep the Mailbox size below the specified limit.
Messages to Keep: This setting specifies the maximum number of messages that can be left in the archive Mailbox after a digest is generated.
Start new Archive every: This setting specifies when the new archive Mailbox should be created. The old archive Mailbox becomes a submailbox with the name YYYY-MM-DD, where YYYY specifies the year, MM specifies the month, and DD specifies the day when the first archive message was stored. Unless the Start New Archive option is set to never, a new archive is created when the archive Mailbox size limit or the archived message number limit is exceeded. If the Start New Archive option is set to never and the Maximum Archive Size option is set to zero, all messages are removed from the archive Mailbox as soon as a digest is generated.
This setting specifies if this mailing list should appear in the Mailing Lists section of the WebUser Interface.
nobody: The mailing list will not be available via the Web Interface.
anybody: The mailing list will be displayed as a browsable mailing list, and its archive can be used by anybody.
Subscribers: The mailing list will be displayed as a browsable mailing list, but in order to browse its archive, users should enter their E-mail address and the Confirmation ID (as the password). To retrieve a forgotten Confirmation ID, a user can always send a message to <listname-confirm@domain> and get the confirmation ID even if the list subscription mode does not require confirmations. If the subscriber (E-mail address) is a local CommuniGate Pro Account, then not only the confirmation ID, but also the Account password can be used as the list access password.
Clients: The mailing list will be displayed as a browsable mailing list, and can be browsed from the Internet addresses included into the server Client IP Addresses list. For users trying to view the list from outside the specified addresses/networks this mode works as the subscribers mode: these users have to enter the name/password pair (E-mail and Confirmaton ID) to browse the list.
