    It seems that the mail man is not disabled correctly. Use tweak setting >> Under the 'Mail' section uncheck the "Mailman" and Save.

    I have the same problem.

    Mailman wasn't working on my server, as far as I could see, it wasn't even installed on the server by cPanel, none of its files where in place. I tried running /scripts/reinstallmailman, but that worked only afted I added the mailman user (adduser mailman).

    Now mailman works, but I also get the same e-mail as the TS daily.

    After searching on internet, I found that the problem most often is caused by a corrupt request.db file. But I can't seem to find any on my system.. I checked /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/ and removed all accounts one by one and after each removal I tried running the cron job. The problem persisted until all lists were removed. I don't like the idea of having to remove all lists, so I hope someone will come up with a better solution.

    Thanks,
    Bart

    But main problem is,I never use mailman and I never create any list.Everyday I received this mail only.

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists this directory also empty,and mailman user also exist in my system.

    *fixed*

    I fixed the problem this way:

    USE AT YOUR OWN RISC AND MAKE A BACKUP OF THE MAILMAN DIR FIRST!!!

    1. Stop the mailman processes: /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/mailmanctl stop
    1.b. Did you make a backup already? No: cp -rf /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman.bck
    2. Remove all of the lock files (needed for fixmailman to run correctly): rm -rf /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/locks/*
    3. Here we will remove all request.pck files from the mailman/lists directory (I have no idea what this does to your lists, so use at your own risc!!!): rm -f `find /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/ -name request.pck`
    4. Run the cPanel fixmailman script: /scripts/fixmailman
    5. Run the cron job and see if any errors reoccur: /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/checkdbs
