Thanks for moving the discussion here.
Here is the original post: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2012-June/073632.html And this is the post at which the conversation stopped: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/mailman-users/2012-June/073636.html
Basically, what I am trying to do is to set up a running version of Mailman on my local machine, by using the 5 minute guide (http://bazaar.launchpad.net/~mailman-coders/mailman/3.0/view/head:/src/mailm...).
After doing what Mark Sapiro suggested in the last post, I got this:
So, in Mark's suggestion, this exception occurs after you've called
x.setUp()? Or does that call succeed? If it does succeed, don't call
x.tearDown(), but instead go to a different shell on the same machine and try
telnet localhost 9025. What happens then?
You could try changing the port that the testing framework uses to list for SMTP (and other) connections. That is set in the file src/mailman/testing/testing.cfg. Does it help if you change the smtp_port value?
Do you have any kind of local firewall set up? What OS are you using?
