    2 questions

    1. What does this do? Something called mailpasswds is kind of scary...
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/python -S /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/cron/mailpasswds

    2. Why is it failing with this error?
    Site list is missing: mailman

    Hello :)

    That's a Mailman script, as opposed to any custom cPanel script/integration. Here is it's description:

    Do you have any active mailing lists when running that command?

    Thank you.

    This is a new CloudLinux WHM virtual server running with a WHMCS store, so I don't think I have any mailing lists (at least none that I set up).

    I didn't set this up in the cron tab, so it must have been set up by something else?

    Is this dangerous?

    It's a standard cron job by default. You will see it on new installations in the cron file for the mailman user:

    /var/spool/cron/mailman

    The reason for the warning message is because you have no mailing lists setup.

    Thank you.
