    From cPanel I try to delete a (non-existant) mailman list but in spite of saying that it is successfully deleted, below adds:

    No such list: listname_example.com. Removing its residual archives.
    listname_example.com private archives not found as /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private/listname_example.com
    listname_example.com private archives not found as /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private/listname_example.com.mbox
    listname_example.com public archives not found as /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/public/listname_example.com

    After attempting to delete it, it remains appearing as functional in cPanel although it does not exist.

    Only references about such list on the server are:

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/listname_example.com
    /var/cpanel/mailman/diskusage_cache/listname_example.com_archives.cache

    Is it safe to delete the last two references?

    Thank you!

    Yes, I think you could safely remove those two files.

    A rule of thumb I always go by, if in doubt, back it up to another location, then wait to see if something breaks. ;)
