I am having some trouble with my mailman installation under qmail. 

I have set up as follows. 

This is a debian system so yes some of the directories are a bit wierd. 

1. installed mailman under /usr/lib/mailman owned by user list group list. 

2. installed qmail under /var/qmail 

3. added to my virtualdomains file 


in list's home directory I have created a .qmail-default file as follows

|preline /usr/bin/python /usr/lib/mailman/mail/qmail-to-mailman.py 

which I have installed from mailman's contrib directory. 

I then created a mailing list, and recieved the mailman-owner email fine, the one saying my list had
been created. 

If I now send email to test at lists.sohocom.net or test-request at lists.sohocom.net it bounces back saying
"no such mailbox" 

in my mail.log I see "triple bounce, discarding". 

I also tried creating the aliases in /var/qmail/alias 


pointing to 

|preline /usr/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post test


same results doing that. 

Has anyone seen this happen before and has a solution for it?
