    Please run:

    /usr/lib/mailman/bin/newlist mailman

    to create the mailman default list. seem as if the command slipped out of the command field and is shown in the output part of the tutorial only. I will fix that.

    Regarding the attack, as soon as the install is finished, fail2ban will take care of blocking this IP.

    Can anyone please direct me in the right way, I have done what was suggested, and even looked around the net but haven't had luck so far.

    There might be a problem with your hostname. The error says:

    Illegal list name: mailman@server1

    but a internet server should have a fully qualified domain name as hostname, so it should be like this:

    [email protected]

    What is the output of:



    hostname -f
