You're right - I don't have such access, but thanks for the interesting link.  I'm not yet sure if the webhost will provide these, but I might ask them if needed.

However, here's the latest development.  I created bugtest1 at whatever-domain.com lists for each of my 7 domains, then for each list, I:

- Set owner to my address,

- Set admin_notify_mchanges to "Yes",

- Took a few other Yes/No options which shouldn't matter, the same for each list),

- Subscribed X address to the list,

- Then unsubscribed X address from the list.

The result was, only 3 of the 7 lists sent me subscription and unsubscribe emails.  The other 4 sent nothing!  (I confirmed this from the command line where I could see the emails which I received a few levels under the ~/mail directory on the server.  I also confirmed the lists are basically the same by dumping & comparing their settings with a Perl script I wrote, which uses Perl's WWW::Mailman module.)

Does it sound as if cPanel or the webhost have caused some problems with the mailman installation?

Should I take this up with the webhost, (who will probably have to pass it on to cPanel), or do you have any ideas?

I'm using cPanel 11 66.0.17, in case anyone is interested.

Thanks again.
