Sounds like something you should report to the Mailman 2 mailing list. Virtualmin team doesn’t build or maintain Mailman.

the reply from Bug #1974478 “Mailman 2.1.15 found a bug” : Bugs : GNU Mailman

are there no idea’s ?

why did you install such a old version? (10 years old)?

its the version from centos7 release

I mean mailman 2.1.15 is almost 10 years old in the bug report

yes but i have also isues with mailman 3 and the virtualmin module, so i have installed the centos 7 release version.

And the error is still showing 2.1.15? I don’t have VM pro so I can’t test.

Mailman is not a Pro feature, it is available to anyone in the virtualmin-mailman module.

but what can we do ?

so you got it from here?

looks way out of date

It’s in our repos (as all of our modules are).

Sorry, I’m a bit dumb here, how do I install it? I can’t see it in the plugin section.

Your OS package manager (apt on Debian/Ubuntu, yum/dnf on RHEL and derivatives). You can use the Software Packages module in Webmin if you want to do it in the GUI.

Note you need both the mailman package and the Virtualmin mailman plugin (wbm-virtualmin-mailman or webmin-virtualmin-mailman, depending on distro). It’s not used very much these days (as mailman is not used very much these days), so it doesn’t get a lot of attention from us. We fix bugs when we get good reports and see a reasonable way to fix it.

thanks, I tried yum install webmin-mailman thats why it failed :slight_smile:
