As part of setting up a new list you need to activate a couple of mail
For a list named "listname", these are:
listname: "|<mailman-home>/mail/wrapper post listname"
listname-admin: "|<mailman-home>/mail/wrapper mailowner listname"
listname-request: "|<mailman-home>/mail/wrapper mailcmd listname"

Be sure these aliases really exist and are activated. In case you use sendmail
you need to run the command 'newaliases' after editing the aliases file. For
backward compatibility these two aliases are also recommended:

owner-listname: listname-admin
listname-owner: listname-admin
