I delete a mailing list and it says it was sucessfully deleted but it still shows up......
Mailing List Deleted
The mailing list [email protected] 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.

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.
