I had the pleasure of spending 2 hours getting mailman to work. : P
I didn't find anything in the archives on my specific problem,
so I'm posting the fix.

Package: exim   
Version: 2.05-1  

Package: mailman 
Version: 1.0rc1-1
This version does not include the INSTALL file. : O

If your exim is setup with good relay controls (aka CORRECTLY!)
all resends will get rejected with the error:

1999-05-31 00:07:13 unqualified recipient rejected: <root> H=localhost
(schizo.psychosis.com) [] (list)

You must edit /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py (/usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/) and 

In /etc/exim.conf add this below 'system_aliases:'

  driver = aliasfile;
  file = /etc/exim.aliases.mailman,
  search_type = lsearch
  user = list

The debian package defaults mailman to the user 'list'.
With the above you shoudl put mailman aliases in /etc/exim.aliases.mailman
