[Mailman-Users] wrapper problems

You need to create a symbolic link to wrapper in /etc/smrsh. Goto /etc/smrsh
and then ln -s /path/to/mailman/mail/wrapper wrapper. Restart sendmail.
without this link in smrsh, sendmail won't run the wrapper since it thinks
its not cool to do so.

hello all,

i am having some wrapper problems.

sh: wrapper not available for sendmail programs

i followed the directions listed in the install, and now i am receiving
this error:
   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/etc/smrsh/wrapper mailowner test"
    (expanded from: test-admin)
