    I am having Mailman problems on a shared server.

    Mailman just quite delivering mail to the subscribers of lists. Not errors, not bounces.

    The host compnay has been unable or unwilling to fix the problem.

    Now they are saying that "mailman has just released a statement that they will not support CPanel-based mailman installations anymore due to the fact that the CPanel developers have not correctly implemented their solution and causing it to fail... CPanel will most likely be discontinuing it from all servers, too."

    I just asked cpanel support about this and their response was it was they first they had heard of it.

    Anyone else having Mailman problems, know how to fix this one, have heard about an overall issuee between Mailman and Cpanel?

    I'm going to answer myself. This is from Mailman's developer Barry Warsaw:

    This is either incorrect, or some unauthorized person is speaking on
    behalf of the Mailman project. I think I'm the only person who could
    authoritatively release such a statement, and I never have. If you can
    track down a reference to this statement, I'd like to see it. I will
    ask the mailing lists if anybody's heard of any such thing.

    Having said that, I personally know nothing about CPanel so I don't know
    what might be wrong. I don't know any CPanel people, but I would be
    happy to work with them to make sure Mailman and CPanel continues to
    work together. I know a lot of people use CPanel, so I'd like to help
    if I can.

    Feel free to send this message to the folks at cpanel.net, or to any
    CPanel developer who is in a position to collaborate with me.
