    Usage: /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/newlist [options] [listname [listadmin-addr [admin-password]]]

    Options:

    -l language
    --language=language
    Make the list's preferred language `language', which must be a two
    letter language code.

    -u urlhost
    --urlhost=urlhost
    Gives the list's web interface host name.

    -e emailhost
    --emailhost=emailhost
    Gives the list's email domain name.

    -q/--quiet
    Normally the administrator is notified by email (after a prompt) that
    their list has been created. This option suppresses the prompt and
    notification.

    -h/--help
    Print this help text and exit.

    You can specify as many of the arguments as you want on the command line:
    you will be prompted for the missing ones.

    Every Mailman list has two parameters which define the default host name for
    outgoing email, and the default URL for all web interfaces. When you
    configured Mailman, certain defaults were calculated, but if you are running
    multiple virtual Mailman sites, then the defaults may not be appropriate for
    the list you are creating.

    You also specify the domain to create your new list in by typing the command
    like so:

    newlist --urlhost=www.mydom.ain mylist

    where `www.mydom.ain' should be the base hostname for the URL to this virtual
    hosts's lists. E.g. with this setting people will view the general list
    overviews at http://www.mydom.ain/mailman/listinfo. Also, www.mydom.ain
    should be a key in the VIRTUAL_HOSTS mapping in mm_cfg.py/Defaults.py if
    the email hostname to be automatically determined.

    If you want the email hostname to be different from the one looked up by the
    VIRTUAL_HOSTS or if urlhost is not registered in VIRTUAL_HOSTS, you can specify
    `emailhost' like so:

    newlist --urlhost=www.mydom.ain --emailhost=mydom.ain mylist

    where `mydom.ain' is the mail domain name. If you don't specify emailhost but
    urlhost is not in the virtual host list, then mm_cfg.DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST will
    be used for the email interface.

    For backward compatibility, you can also specify the domain to create your
    new list in by spelling the listname like so:

    mylist@www.mydom.ain

    where www.mydom.ain is used for `urlhost' but it will also be used for
    `emailhost' if it is not found in the virtual host table. Note that
    '--urlhost' and '--emailhost' have precedence to this notation.

    If you spell the list name as just `mylist', then the email hostname will be
    taken from DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST and the url will be taken from DEFAULT_URL (as
    defined in your Defaults.py file or overridden by settings in mm_cfg.py).

    Note that listnames are forced to lowercase.

    Illegal list name: test_domain.com@mustang
    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "/usr/local/cpanel/bin/cp_mailman2", line 47, in ?
    raise SystemExit(main(sys.argv))
    File "/usr/local/cpanel/bin/cp_mailman2", line 31, in main
    file=open('/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/' + list + '_' + domain + '/config.pck','r')
    IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/lists/test_domain.com/config.pck'



    ----------------------------------------
