    There would surely be a mailing list setup for that domain. Or if not just open the /etc/valiases/domain.com inside your favorite editor and check the forwarder in question here.

    If you are sure that no mailing list is present on that domain and you still see the forwarded pointing to mailman, just delete that from the file and you are done.

    FYI, I had this same problem with a customer... turned out that they tried to create a mailing list, but they are not allowed to do so (they have not been given any lists to configure).

    But if they use the mailing list link in cpanel to create a list, it actually creates a bunch of aliases in the valiases file. Later, the customer tried to create a pop account (actually a forwarder) with the same name, and it caused this error.

    I edited /etc/valiases/theirdomain.com to remove the bogus mailman aliases and the problem was resolved.

    I may see if cPanel will consider this a bug... cpanel should not even try to do anything with mailing lists, if it can't first verify whether the customer has any lists available to configure.
