Hi guys!

The problem Dan has  sounds exactly like my one:

The first "test" mailing list does not send the notification
email either. I have the same logs in smtp, smtp-failure and
post every minute.

I run Tru64 UNIX 4.0f. Python 1.5.2 and Mailman 2.0beta6
and exim 3.16

Yes, I installed the crontab under the user mailman. And I
followed the HOWTO "exim and mailman" found at www.exim.org.

I tried with installing the aliases into system-alias and
without it. Nothing changed. The first notificaten email
does not arrive. There are no entries in exim's log files.

Any suggestions?

What is your MTA, and what do its logs say?
