Ok, now I found out most of the things which were not clear to me
(and probably for some more QMail users):
1. I've created a user with name "mailman" ... when setting
up the aliases mailman and mailman-owner, mailman-owner will not
be found unless you do a touch .qmail-owner in the home directory
2. With QMail many people try to avoid relaying (so do I), so
mailman can't send mail in most cases. Mailman does (when
doing a newlist) something like:
"preisl at stuco.uni-klu.ac.at", "mailman-owner at ftp.uni-klu.ac.at")
where preisl at stuco is the recipient and mailman-owner at ftp is
the sender ... SendTextToUser does _not_ report an error ...
when reproducing this by hand:
[root at ftpsrv /root]# telnet localhost 25
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 ftpsrv.sci.uni-klu.ac.at ESMTP
mail from: mailman-owner at ftp.uni-klu.ac.at
rcpt to: preisl at stuco.uni-klu.ac.at
553 sorry, that domain isn't in my list of allowed rcpthosts (#5.7.1)
then you see, that qmail doesn't relay for that host, so
from my point of view mailman will only send mail to the hosts
setup in rcpthosts ... is this right ?
Thanks for your patience :)
