    there was a problem in Mailing List on our server, It was NOT working, So I'd post a ticket to our DC & they had ran a script that fixes various mail issue but the problem was not solved. thus our DC has opened a "cPanel Ticket"

    after some time our DC reported us. that "cPanel support found some permissions issues within the mailman folder, which they've repaired. Let me know if the mailing list is working now."

    And i checked & found that problem is solved.

    now i wanted to know how cPanel support found some permission issue ?? is there any tricks ??

    What the mailman permission should be ?

    Mailman has a script built-in to check the permissions. It is located at:

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/check_perms


    From the manpage:

    NAME
    check_perms - Check permissions of Mailman's files

    SYNOPSIS
    check_perms [-f] [-v] [-h]

    OPTIONS
    -f Fix any problems found (when run as root)

    -v Be verbose

    DESCRIPTION
    With no arguments, just check and report all the files that have bogus
    permissions or group ownership.

    Please check the Mailman logs to determine how to proceed with investigation; they are located in the following directory path:
    Code:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs/

    For what it's worth, we had this same problem and our solution was that qrunner was not running.

    There are numerous different permissions involved; the question is too broad to be able to answer in an understandable fashion.

    Please first check the Mailman logs to determine what, if anything, may be occurring as mentioned in this post.
