mailto link to site admin contains webserver port

Bug #265998 reported by Axel Beckert on 2003-12-09
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNU Mailman

Bug Description

If you access Mailman's web interface via some other
port than 80, i.e. the port number is specified in the
URL and therefore in the Host header, it's also present
in the site admin mailto link.


If the Mailman URL is e.g.


then the site admin mailto link reads


which isn't what it should be.

Fix: Strip the colon and port number before outputting
the host name for the email address.

Found in Mailman 2.1.3 on Linux using Postfix as MTA
(which probably should matter very much in this case ;-).
