[Mailman-Users] list emails aren't being sent (me, too)

I just installed Mailman today, by-the-book and double checked as much as I 
could, and I'm having the same problems.

/var/log/maillog shows that the message is sent (no errors) to "wrapper" 
which is symlinked (on FreeBSD) in /usr/libexec/sm.bin and has the correct 

The logs/smtp file doesn't say anything useful:

Jul 03 18:28:32 2001 (75115) smtp for 1 recips, completed in 0.279 seconds

Nothing in the other logs that would point to a problem.  "check_perms -f" 
says all is well.

The aliases in /etc/mail/aliases are set up correctly (that would be obvious).

The administrative interface (web) says there is nothing in queue, and no 
archive (even though I told it to archive the new private list), but I see 
in the qfiles directory:


My crontab was installed properly and I HUP'd the cron process (the paths 
are correct in the crontab entries).

The httpd.conf (Apache 1.3.20) seems to be correctly configured -- I can 
get to the interface using:


I installed an alias per the instructions I read:

         Alias /pipermail/ "/local5/mailman/archives/"

Though I admit to not seeing where that is useful -- and it doesn't let me 
at the archive anyway.

Do you have to place an entry in the httpd.conf file for every list you 
create??   I want to have my private lists available in archive form for 
the admin.

So... :-)  Just a little concerned about why this isn't working and where I 
can look next for something awry.

Thanks in advance.
