[Mailman-Users] Mailman on QMail with Closed Relay

I've been checking the qmail logs and it looks like it doesn't even try
to send messages off the server, I just see sending to local. Any idea
what other logs I could check?

Actually, I was going by the documentation in "Life with qmail" by Dave
Sill. His way to configures tcpserver a little different. I hadn't
realized there was a more generic file structure for tcpserver in use.
To ensure that tcpserver is accessing the right database file, do a
ps -auxw | egrep tcpserver
and see what the -x switch is set to. If it's
tcserver -x /etc/tcprules.d/qmail-smtp.cdb
and that's the name of your database file, then you're doing the right
thing. I would also do a
to make sure the formatting and syntax of your tcprules file is correct.
Lastly (or firstly), check the qmail logs and see if there's any errors
in sending out messages.
