[Mailman-Users] can't subscribe to list

I'm having a problem with Mailman adding members to a mailing-list.  In
the "Getting started" section of the INSTALL file, it says to create
a list and then go to it and subscribe.  I did that and received the
confirmation email from Mailman.  Responding to the confirmation email,
however, doesn't add me to the list (according to both the list's web
page and the "bin/listmembers" utility).

    uname -a:		Linux daffy.unidata.ucar.edu 2.2.16-3smp #1 SMP Mon Jun 19 19:00:35 EDT 2000 i686 unknown
    Mailman version:	2.0rc1
    MTA:		Exim 3.16
    Python version:	1.5.2
    Mailman user:	mailman
    Mailman group:	mailman
    bin/check_perms:	no errors
    Exim configuration:	MAILMAN_UID=mailman

    When responding to the confirmation email:

	/var/log/messages:	<<nothing>>

	$MAILMAN_HOME/logs/*:	<<nothing>>

I think the thing that bothers me the most is that I can't find an error
message anywhere.

Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.
