I set up mailman the other day on my mandrake 8.0 Server.  I am running
postfix.  Everything seems alright until I try to confirm and then I get
the following:

This is the Postfix program at host mail.bloomfield.k12.mo.us.

I'm sorry to have to inform you that the message returned
below could not be delivered to one or more destinations.

For further assistance, please send mail to <postmaster>

If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the message returned below.

The Postfix program

<test5-request at mail.bloomfield.k12.mo.us>: unknown user: "test5-request"

Ricardo suggested that maybe I had not set aliases and he was correct,
so I did as he said where home/mailman is the $prefix

Aliases in etc/

test5:               "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post test5"
test5-admin:          "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner test5"
test5-request:        "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test5"
test5-owner:          test5-admin

postfix reload

And now I am still getting the same error as above.  Why is
test5-request unknown?  Any help would greatly be apprectiated.  I need
to have this going this afternoon, but the way it looks it might be next
year.  Thanks.
