You haven't created the list "mailman" as stated in the INSTALL,
this list is used as the from address for sending out password reminder.

[snip from INSTALL]
    - Create a "site-wide" mailing list.  This is the one that
      password reminders will appear to come from.  Usually this
      should be the "mailman" mailing list, but if you need to change
      this, be sure to change the MAILMAN_SITE_LIST variable in
      mm_cfg.py (see below).

      % bin/newlist mailman

    - You should then subscribe yourself to the mailman list.

This should solve your problem :)
