Hello,
I am unable to re-create a mailing list after deleting it.
Here is the error :

The system experienced a problem when it attempted to create the mailing list “[email protected]”: Email::addlist($RAW_FORM{'email'},$RAW_FORM{'password'},$RAW_FORM{'domain'},0,$RAW_FORM{'private'}) failed: (XID 8a2ehc) The requested mailing list address, “[email protected]”, conflicts with the forwarder “[email protected]”. To create a mailing list named “[email protected]”, you must first delete the forwarder that conflicts with that name.

and one more strange thing, Every time this conflicting address gets changed as for this time it shows [email protected] is conflicting and it gets changed on every attempt and that conflicting addresses are no where nor in forwarders neither in email accounts.

I have restarted Mailman services and few other services and no Luck.

Thanks.

Hello,
I fixed this issue by deleting non-existent forwarders in "/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/".

Thank You.
Hello,

I've been unable to reproduce this issue on a test system. What version of cPanel is installed on your server? An older internal case (FB-30240) addressed a similar report in cPanel version 48.

Thank you.

You should be able to address this issue if it happens again by repairing mailmain permissions with the following command:

Code:
/scripts/fixmailman
Let us know if the issue persists after running this command should the problem reoccur.

Thank you.
