    Hi there.
    I have a domain here in which the user created a mailing list with the same name as his primary user . The mailing list creation failed (at least it isnt showing up in his list manager), and now mail to him gets throough, but the sender gets the message below back:

    ---------------------------------------
    This message was created automatically by mail delivery software (Exim).

    A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
    recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:

    pipe to |/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/mail/wrapper post pipebomb_pipebomb.net
    generated by pipebomb@pipebomb.net
    Child process of virtual_address_pipe transport returned 1 from command:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/mail/wrapper

    The following text was generated during the delivery attempt:

    ------ pipe to |/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/mail/wrapper post pipebomb_pipebomb.net
    generated by pipebomb@pipebomb.net ------

    Mailman error: post got bad listname: pipebomb_pipebomb.net

    ------ This is a copy of the message, including all the headers. ------

    He doesnt mind not having the list, so how bets to fix this? I assume that mailman keeps a .config file somewhere with list names, which perhaps I can delete?

    Check his /etc/valiases for a leftover pipe to the list.

    Thanks Annette. I removed their entries and it all works fine now.
    Good call!
