    I have a large mailing list with Mailman (+4000 members) on my Cpane server
    (Linux CentOS 4, WHM 11.15.0 cPanel 11.18.1) . I sent out a message yesterday,
    most of the emails were delivered successfully. Only a few emails were still
    hanging in the queue, which is normal.

    Today, I restarted Cpanel, and suddenly this old email was resent again in mass
    to everyone. When Cpanel was restarted again later today by my system admin,
    Mailman started to send the same message for the 3rd time, so I had to shut
    down exim server a moment ago to avoid my server being blacklisted by
    Yahoo/Hotmail/Gmail.

    Also since early today, I observed that I couldn't send new emails to any
    mailing lists. I can see from the exim mail server's log file that exim
    successfully received the new message, but it couldn't activate the mailman to
    distribute it.

    From the above two symptoms, I suspect that something is wrong with mailman.
    How can I solve it? Thanks in advance!

    Ive also been having problems with mailman, im keep recieveing the following email around 6 or 7 times a day,

    Subject: /usr/bin/python2.4 -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/senddigests", line 36, in ?
    import paths
    File "/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/paths.py", line 60, in ?
    import korean
    ImportError: No module named korean


    I am not sure if this is related, but no emails seem to be being redirected to default addresses when they are sent to the server?

    I solved my problem by running /scripts/reinstallmailman, the fixmailman etc scripts didn't help.
