In order to moderate a W3C mailing list, one needs to be able to bounce a message. This apparently isn’t directly possible with gmail, but can be worked around manually:
- From the message dropdown, select Show original, then from the browser select Save Page As....
- With a text editor, find the line containing
X-From_:. Copy this line to the top of the file, then modify that first line by removing the
_:characters. Save the file.
- Now you case use mutt on that file (example:
mutt -f mail.google.com) and use the
bcommand to bounce the message. Enter the name of the mailing list (example:
email@example.com), press enter and then
Perhaps if I need to do this often enough, I’ll automate the process, but for now these notes will help should I need to do the process again in the future.
