    I delete a mailing list and it says it was sucessfully deleted but it still shows up......
    Mailing List Deleted
    The mailing list pkoury@hyder.org was successfully deleted.

    When I try to edit the list it says....
    Mailman CGI error!!!
    The Mailman CGI wrapper encountered a fatal error. This entry is being stored in your syslog:
    Permission denied

    I ran /scripts/fixmailman but it didnt help.

    Dear AbeFroman,

    Remove the components of a mailing list with impunity.

    To remove the list give rmlist -a[archive] listname, in the mailman/bin/ this removes all traces of a mailing list. By default the list archives are not removed, which is very handy for retiring old lists.

    The option -a remove the lists archives too, or the list has already been deleted, remove any residual archives.

    Regards,

    Re: RE: Cannot Delete Mailman List

    They should be removed. To say lists are not removed because they are deliberately left there for archive purposes is a joke. Listen, if a user deletes a mailling list or an email account it shold be completely wiped. I think its because Cpanel is not doing what its supposed to be doing when removing services then why would it be right to say this is a deliberate action. Its not. It just wasnt though of. Simple as that.
