Default mailman setting?

    So, it seems there's a default mailman setting for all of my cPanel installs. If you send to:

    mailman@servername1.com, it thinks it's a mailing list and will tell you you're not allowed to post there as you're not a member.

    This becomes a problem due to spam, forged headers, etc.

    However, I can't seem to configure the "default" mailman configuration. Does anyone else have this problem? Does sending a fake email to mailman@yourcpanelserver.com reply back with a "you are not a subscriber" message and does anyone know how I can modify this default mailing list?

    It's the same across many cPanel servers of ours, not a standalone issue.

    I'm not sure I understand, the message that is returned to user clearly states its been rejected.

    Explain that to TrendMicro who had blacklisted our IPs because of this. They informed us that our servers are being used as bounce spam from mailman.

    If you forge the From headers, send a spam message to mailman@ourservernames.com, it will bounce and provide the spam to the new person.

    I can't find any way to configure that default mailman account to turn off non-member bounces.
