I just set up a new Mailman account. First time.
I set it up using the defaults.

When I add myself as a subscriber it sent me the welcome email

General information about the mailing list is at:

http://mydomain.com/mailman/listinfo/listmembers_mydomain.com

If you ever want to unsubscribe or change your options (eg, switch to
or from digest mode, change your password, etc.), visit your
subscription page at:

http://mydomain.com/mailman/options/listmembers_mydomain.com/me%40myemail.com
These links both return 404s. I read a thread from years ago that indicated it might be related to a SymLink Race Protection setting. I have this enabled in EasyApache.

Thanks.

I deleted that list, and setup a new one this morning because the client wanted a different domain address.
Everything worked this time, except for relative links to the 3 footer images at the bottom of the domain specific html pages.
The images are there at the administration pages (which use the IP in the address).

Thanks for the suggestions, I restarted cpanel, and looked through the recent log entries.
Still can't login through that URL using MailMan credentials.

The only way I can login is through cPanel. Going to Mailing Lists > Manage.
While this is fine for me, but I do not want to give the MailMan moderator this access.

Isn't there a URL that a moderator can login directly to MailMan's administrative interface?

I was directed to some documentation that described the process as the following:

In cPanel>Mail>Mailing Lists click on delegation and find an email to add to the list.
This requires an email address created on this account.

Go to http://mydomain.com/webmail
This will bring you to a cPanel Email Login.
When you've logged into the account, you will see a icon/link in the menu for Mailing Lists.
Following this you will see a list of Mailman lists.
Click the list to enter the administrative interface.

Note that this process gives this user Administrative rights to any list in that cPanel account.

For me it's okay as I will only have the 1 list, however shouldn't there be a way to have users with Moderator privileges login to a somewhat less powerful interface?

Hello :)

The list should be directly accessible with a URL such as:

Code:
http://domain.com/mailman/listinfo/listname_domain.com
Do you receive an error message when attempting to load this URL?

Thank you.
