    Hi,

    Sure you can disable the mailman option if you didn't use this and it will not affect the mails that your sending via php .

    mailling list and php mail functions are 2 different things.

    hi,
    mainman and php mail functions are 2 different things, if you want to discard your users ability to use a mailman(maillling list) you can disable it.

    howevere you would need to disable it in http.conf too, ask any system admin to do it for you.
    there's a post by SHASHANK with a expert advice on disbaling mailman completely somewhere(use search to find it on this forum).

    see ya,
    mohit

    Thanks for the replies! Sure enough, even after unchecking mailman in WHM, I can still access a page like: http://www.domainname.com/mailman/admin/YourListName

    After I had the web host remove /mailman alias from httpd.conf and restarted apache, it's all gone. Here is the original post just in case it can help anyone else out. Thanks, it worked!
