We want to abc group email should be send email to one user e.g abc at example.com<mailto:abc at example.com> not to all members. We just want abc group just for sending email.

I don't understand what you mean by the above. I think you mean you
want an announcement or one-way type of list where only one or a few
people can post messages to be received by all members. If so, see

>My user don't want moderation they want simple. I configure like if someone reply or reply all both the case only I receive e-mail, but problem is occurred when someone email on abc at lists.lums.edu.pk<mailto:abc at lists.lums.edu.pk> that email are going to all members, which we don't want kindly give me solution

If I understand you correctly, moderation is the only way Mailman has
to do this. There is no other way to stop a list member from posting
to the list. Note that moderation doesn't necessarily mean all posts
from moderated members will be held for approval. You can set the
action for a post from a moderated member to discard the post or
reject it with a message you supply. See the FAQ article linked above.
