    Are you seeing mailman processes with no one using mail? I am seeing a lot of it and worried that it may be a security hole.

    I believe mailman uses a lot of cron jobs and has a bout 7 processes on mine. It's not a security problem.

    It's just far too complex for my clients to use, I provide them with a simpler newsletter script.

    The newest mailman versions start up automatically. It's a pain in the ass if you ask me as I don't allow clients to use it and the extra processes almost double the load on the server.

    Can't remember atm how to disable it permanently though :/

    Bye Bye Mailman

    I have installed MOJO and am converting all my clients emails from mailman to MOJO.

    Does anybody know where mailman stores the files that has all the user email addresses in it for a mailing list? I would like to take this file and import to MOJO so I do not have to cut and paste a few hundred addresses.

    Thanks!

    If there's one thing that will cause massive load on your machine it'll be Mojo. Awful thing.

    You can go simpler than mojo:

    I will probably end up writing one for my clients. Bit fancier than BNB and not as fancy as Mojo, written in PHP not PERL. Might make it available commercially.
