    My dedicated server provider requires that if a spam complaint arises at any point in the future that we retain a record of the opt-in confirmation.

    The problem I see is that mailman allows the list admin from cpanel to bulk-subscribe members by coping and pasting email addresses into a box, as well as the normal opt-in or bulk-invite options. So if an abuse complaint happened in the future, how do I prove that a list-member opted in to join the mailman list and was not bulk-added by the list owner?

    Is there a way to set mailman to record and archive forever all the opt-in join confirmations from list members, either when done 1 at a time or when using the bulk - invite feature?

    Check your mailman logs for all the information. Mine go back to the day I changed to the server!

    I'm sorry to be very dense here -- where are the mailman logs?

    Mine are at:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/logs/
    check the "subscribe" file for the information on how they were sibscribed.

    Ahh - thank you! I was looking under the account, cpanel, and the mailman admin panel to no avail. It appears that there is a single subscribe log that would be for all mailman lists on the server - I guess that is fine though and will do the job as it includes the IP, email address, and that it was added via web confirmation.
