Dan has made ezmlm very robust, but a subscriber list can still become corrupted due to e.g. disk errors. Usually, this will lead to a ‘temporary qmail-queue error’ because an address does not conform to the standard format. Occasionally, two email addresses are fused, e.g. ‘addr1@hostTaddr2@host’. To diagnose and fix this type of error, disable deliveries (easiest is to ‘chmod 0 DIR/lock’), back up the contents of DIR/subscribers/, then:
% ezmlm-list DIR > tmp.tmp ( edit tmp.tmp to fix any problems ) % rm -f DIR/subscribers/? % ezmlm-sub DIR < tmp.tmp
This will list all email addresses, allow you to edit them, then re-subscribe them. Don't forget to re-enable deliveries.
