  • Plesk 10.0.x for Linux/Unix


Parallels Plesk Panel does not allow to create mailing list on customer's subscription. It fails with the error messsage:
Unable to create list: listmng failed: listmng: Error: cannot create new list: is Mailman configured properly?. System error 2: No such file or directory


This problem was discovered in Parallels Plesk Panel 10.0.1 and will be fixed in future updates.

In order to fix the issue, apply hot-fix on your server.

Replace the file $PRODUCT_ROOT_D/admin/smb/application/library/Smb/Form/Final/MailList.php with the file from the attachment.

Do not forget to backup original file before replacement.
# cp -p /usr/local/psa/admin/smb/application/library/Smb/Form/Final/MailList.php{,.orig}

Please read the article #8083 about a hot-fix installation procedure.

After that Parallels Plesk Panel will show the real error message which is related to password strength. If your password satisfies password policy you will not see the error.
