[Mailman-Users] sendmail problems

One of my key problems seems to sum down to the following (assuming that
the list in question is called "test").  I've been very careful in the
install and seem to have everything required by the INSTALL file.  The
CGI stuff all works fine, but. . .

1. When I click "Test Archives" in the page generated by
"mailman/listinfo/test" I get a file not found.  There is a link from
the /home/mailman/archives/public/test that points to
/home/mailman/archives/private/test, but the latter file does not
exist.  I suppose that the problem is coming somewere from 'wrapper',
but I've checked to make sure that my aliases work.

2. I can add users to the list from the administrative side but using
"Subscribe" from the page given by one seems to have no effect.

3. This is the error message returned:
   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
    (expanded from: <test at chilliwack.parc.xerox.com>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
sh: wrapper not available for sendmail programs
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"... Service unavailable

4.  Also, if I have more than one "test-<>" alias present (i.e. if both
"test" and "test-admin" are aliases) then the "test alias doesn't seem
to work.

Is this an incompatibility with my sendmail or something?

I'm running on Linux RedHat 6.0 with Apache1.3.6.

Thanks for your help,
