    Hi - I'm pretty new to cPanel/WHM.

    On my server, when a user creates a mailing list; for example,

    mylist@domain.tld

    In all the email mailman sends out it gives the email address of the list as:

    MyList_domain.tld@domain.tld
    instead of
    mylist@domain.tld

    and
    MyList_domain.tld-request@domain.tld
    instead of
    mylist-request@domain.tld

    Therefor, when a user sends an email to those incorrect email addresses, it ends up in the catchall email box for the account. I guess I could just create forwarders for my customers so that the email ends up getting piped to the mailman programs - but, that's a pain in the bum and defeats the purpose of having an automated user control panel.

    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I ran that script - and now mailman is not processing mail at all.

    &&update&&

    I just ran /scripts/fixoldlistswithsuexec

    ah - that's fixed it :) thanks.
