I'm not completely sure, neither any kind of mailman guru, but I have
instaled six in the last three weeks, and whe I got those kind of
behaviour it had always something with getting the permissions/groups 
wrong. Check that:

- user mailman belongs also tho the group mail or whichever group you or

- check that sendmail executes using that uid: Og (option g) in

Just my 2 cents (of an euro, of course :)
