    Is there a way to move the mailman archives. It seems ihave a user or a few users that are filling up the /usr directory due to their archives. This is something really new for me, since I have hosted these same accounts for about 4 years.

    425388 ./local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private/alertlist_mnsny.com/attachments
    295032 ./local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/archives/private/alertlist_mnsny.com.mbox


    Or are there any other suggestions. My /usr is showing 86 %

    Move them and make an alias to the new location. I do that with my apache logs.

    Any directions somewhere that gives me an idea on how to do this. While I have ran my server for almost 4 years now, there are just some things Ive never had to do. any suggestion would be appreciated

    The mailman service is easily abused. I end up disabling it completely and I never enable it on new servers.
