Mailing list settings are not transferred (migrated)

Symptoms

Advanced settings of mailing lists were lost after transfer (migration) in Parallels Plesk Panel .

Cause

Migration & Transfer Manager transfers only basic settings of mailing lists: list administrator, subscribers and mailing list archives. Other settings are not transferred, since Plesk cannot manage them.

Resolution

It is possible to transfer configuration of mailing list using Mailman's native utilities. Below example shows how to transfer settings of maillist maillist1 from one server to another:

  1. On source server save mailing list configuration into file:

    /usr/lib/mailman/bin/config_list -o maillist1.conf maillist1
  2. Transfer maillist1.conf to destination server, where domain with mailing list has already been transferred and deployed, and restore configuration:

    /usr/lib/mailman/bin/config_list -i maillist1.conf maillist1
