I too am experiencing problems with 2.0.1 mailman and the wrapper GID
problem. Enclosed below are, hopefully, enough snippets someone to
solve the problem.
Firstly - yes, I have followed the INSTALL (as I understand it), read
the FAQ, searched the python.org archives, and searched all of this
years mailman digests.
Platform: Red Hat Linux 6.0 , Kernel 2.2.17 on an i686
On sending the confirmation reply to a subscription request, I get the
following in my sendmail log:
Mar 1 11:53:58 ds9 Mailman mail-wrapper: Failure to exec
script. WANTED gid 1, GOT gid 12. (Reconfigure to take 12?)
Here is my configuration line:
(BTW - I tried with numerical gid 12 instead of 'mail' - same problem. )
As you can see, it is configured for 12/mail (see group file entry below).
However, if I run the following by hand:
/share/mailman/linux/mail/wrapper mailcmd test2
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 0.
(Reconfigure to take 0?)
I.e., the wrapper here seems to understand that gid of 12 is required,
but it is getting 0 (because I ran this as root from the command line
My sendmail.cf contains the following:
My /etc/group file contains:
ls -al /etc/smrsh/wrapper
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Aug 8 2000 /etc/smrsh/wrapper -> /share/mailman/linux/mail/wrapper
Any help *deeply* appreciated :-)

I've installed mailman completly new from the debian dpkg
Everything is running fine except:
if a user subscribes, he get the confirmation mail. He replys the mail and
GET NO SUBSCRIPTION.
In the mailman log this User is marked as "pending"
I use exim as MTA and I know, there where additional adjustings with earlyer
Versions of mailman. But I cannot find any remarks about using exim?

Hi folks,if someone could lend me a hand here, I would be grateful.
I'm trying to use demime.pl with the following recommended hook in
foo: "|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post foo"
but i get back the following error:
----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post shaka"
(expanded from: <foo(a)bar.org>)
----- Transcript of session follows -----
sh: cannot use | in command
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/demime.pl - |/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post
shaka"... Service unavailable
So I'm thinking it's the pipe into a pipe that is creating the problem.
I'm running smrsh and am not sure if the limitation is being imposed there
or not. I do have the approp sym links for both the mailman wrapper and
demime.pl in sm.bin. Has anyone seen this and can recommend a viable

I looked through the archives and didn't find anyone posing the same or
similar question, so....
I'm currently running Mailman v1.1 on a Redhat 5.2 system.
I'm building a replacement server with RedHat 7.0, and am curious what is
the easiest and reliable way to switch the mailing list(s) to the new
server, while upgrading to Mailman 2.0.1.
(1) Install Mailman 2.0.1 on the new server and somehow copy the
subscription info and archives to the new server?
(2) Copy the existing Mailman 1.1 installation to the new server and then
upgrade it to 2.0.1?
(3) Some other alternative?
Suggestions are welcome.
I am list owner of a list being moved to a Mailman 2.0 system
(which is fairly recently installed by other folks here in Minneapolis).
I only have access to the WWW interface to list admin functions. I have
not read the system admin docs - did not want to download the tarball
I have read mention of "virtual host" and "virtual domain" in various
places but have not seen a discussion of the topic. I assume that this
refers to a list appearing to be at a chosen domain other than where
Mailman is running. How is this done?
I have set my mailman-users sub to nomail mode so CC's of response direct
would be appreciated.
BTW setting digest mode as default does not seem to apply to mass
subscribes (they get subscribed in regular mode). Is this a feature or a
