    It depends on how much you want to remove. Since it
    sounds like you plan to put Mailman back after you
    uninstall, I am going to assume that you want to keep
    the same www aliases and list aliases that you already
    have (i.e., you will use the same URLs and list
    addresses after you re-install Mailman).

    All you need to do is delete the directory where you
    installed Mailman. For example, on my system, it is
    the default location, "/home/mailman". If you might
    want to keep anything from the old installation, you
    may just want to move the current installed directory
    aside instead of deleting it entirely. (In particular,
    you may want to keep /home/mailman/Mailman/

    For example, you might do ONE of the following (or

    mv -i /home/mailman /home/mailman.old
    mv -i /home/mailman /tmp
    tar cv -f /tmp/mailman-2.0.13.tar /home/mailman

    I recommend the above approach, but if you are certain
    that you will not want anything from the old directory,
    then just:

    rm -R /home/mailman

    Don't forget to re-create the Mailman install directory
    before starting the re-install. Also, if you -are-
    keeping the former list addresses, be sure to re-create
    the lists.

    (To more fully remove Mailman from your system, you
    would also need to remove web server aliases, the user
    and group called 'mailman', the list aliases from your
    MTA's aliases file(s), and Mailman's cron entries.) Support Ticket Number:
