I have mailman set up and the web admin pages are working fine, plus I can
subscribe via the web and it sends a confirmation fine. But when I reply to
the confirmation I get an email back "Returned mail: Service Unavailable". It
contains this error:

sh: wrapper not available for sendmail programs
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test2"... Service unavailable

And the following shows up in /var/log/maillog: (I've edited out the

I also see that sendmail is using smrsh and I've copied the wrapper executable
into /usr/sbin (where smrsh is located) and get the same error.

This system is redhat 6.0.

Any ideas?
