I don't run courier with Mailman, but the problem seems common enough.  
Check your log files both for courier and Mailman (~mailman/logs/...)

The most common problem is getting the wrapper to run properly with your 
MTA (courier in your case).  What group ID does your courier install run 
as?  Part of mailman's install needs to know the GID so that when courier 
calls the wrapper program it allows it to be run. 

As a security measure, only processes with the GID of the MTA can run 
mailman's wrapper program.
