I am running RedHat 7.2 linux 2.4.9.-13 with mailman-2.0.6-1, 
sendmail-8.11.6-3 and apache-1.3.22-2 all rpm built and installed by 
redhat's installation upgrade. I have been trying to get my active 
mailing lists migrated over from majordomo but seem to have run into a 
snag i cannot unravel. I can setup the list via command line (i.e. 
/var/mailman/bin/newlist) and add the alias entry to the /etc/mail/alias 
file and perform a newaliaes just fine and see it rebuilt. I can then 
hit the test list via webbrowser (i.e. 
http://www.userfriendly.net/mailman/admin/test-list) and go through the 
configuration ok. However when i go to subscribe as a user, i do not get 
any welcome message, nor can i post to the list. In other words, it 
seems to be all setup but no emails ever get generated or sent even 
though i have it set to send all subs/unsubs to the list manager. They 
never get a sub request nor does the user ever get an email concerning 
the confirmation nor instructions. I do see the following in the 

Dec 19 06:34:33 ns1 sendmail[9812]: fBJBYWR09811: 
to="|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper post test-list", 
ctladdr=<test-list at userfriendly.net> (8/0), delay=00:00:01, 
xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=prog, pri=30553, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

but mysteriously never get the emails.

Does any one have any ideas or suggestions?
