    In Plesk 10.4.4 when I click on "Manage the List" on a mailing list I get "can't find the server at lists.mydomain.com". I am able to email to the list and have it distributed to the list participants.

    I am actually trying to find where I can increase the email size limit. It appears to be set at 40k which isn't very large.

    I got an email ...
    When I click on the link to approve/deny I get "can't find the server at lists.dennyp.com".

    I tried entering "mailman" into the Plesk Help Search field but it came back with no hits.

    Any advice or suggestions?

    I forgot to mention that if I do /etc/init.d/mailman/status the reply says mailman is running

    Issue may be caused by invalid resolution of lists.dennyp.com hostname. Check it.

    I appreciate the suggestion. But how do I check the resolution of that host name?

    Run

    # host lists.dennyp.com

    and check that it is resolvable to correct IP address.

    The reply to the above command is:
    So what do I do next? My ISP supplied my server with Red Hat, Plesk, and other products pre-installed. They gave me no instructions on doing anything for mailman set up.

    Thank you.

    I tried "# /etc/init.d/mailman start" and got a message "Starting mailman". But the host command still comes back wth not found.

    I had to add a DNS record which corrected the problem.
