    Hi,

    I really hate mailman. It gives us more
    trouble than any other CPanel features. :mad:

    Is there any plan to change it to
    other mailing-list software?

    I like http://www.ezmlm.org/. It is free
    and I think big brothers like yahoogroups.com
    use it.

    Salutations Mr. Anto,

    Dude. In all honesty I have never seen a *better* feature, as far as a perfect integration of a robust product for a shared linux server environment. If you are a diligent admin and understand how the mailman-related programs/directory structure interface with CPanel and RedHat, it becomes a gigantic selling point for your linux accounts. You *have* to keep a tight leash on what you allow, just like everything else- but if you do it right, this listserv is the best solution for such a feature for this platform. Period.

    Some helpful URLs I have found in the past:

    http://web.aurora.edu/~ckolar//mailman/mailman-administration-1.1.html

    http://list.org/admins.html

    -----------------------------/

    If you have any specific questions, I\'d be more than willing to give you some pointers about Mailman.

    Peace.

    Hummmmmmmmmmmm............

    What is in exim_mainlog (and exim_rejectlog) when this occurs? What is remaining within /var/spool/exim ? What do the mailman logs at /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs report? I am sure you will find some assistance there?

    \"Loops loops and more loops\" doesn\'t provide me with adequate detail to formulate a helpful response.

    I\'m just giving you SH*T
    :)

    :P

    Ahahah, thanks for that.
    I sent an elder link from my huge archive of shite that should have been cleansed eons ago.

    One last superb link for this feature-- probably the best I have seen to date:
    http://msgs.securepoint.com/mailman/

    Peace.
    :D
