Hello list. I have recently installed Mailman-2.0beta3, and am trying to
create my first list to verify the installation. I'm getting errors (shown
below this explanation). The box is running slackware linux, using qmail
as the MTA, and Python-1.5.2.

Any suggestions would be much-appreciated. The documentation and FAQ
didn't seem to cover anything like this.


A transcript of errors follows.

Enter the name of the list: testlist
Enter the email of the person running the list: ccn at panix.com
