We  have been unable to get Mailman operational.  We're running on a Linux 
machine (Kernel 2.0.35) with the commercial version of Sendmail 8.9.2.  We 
get a persistent "Unknown mailer error 1" error message.  The transcript of 
our latest effort follows:

----- Transcript of session follows -----
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/home/mailman/scripts/post", line 45, in ?
mlist = MailList.MailList(sys.argv[1])
File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 62, in __init__
File "/home/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 804, in Load

os.error: (2, 'No such file or directory')
554 "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"... unknown mailer error 1

We're obviously not finding a file/directory that is required.  Has anyone 
run into a similar problem and, if so, have you found a fix?  Is there a 
python option that will allow the testing of "self.__tmpfname" that will 
avoid the "file not found" error?
