I would check on the domain settings 'cause <mailman at getafix.tnc> doesn't
look like a complete domain to me.

Have you setup a new mailinglist, put the aliases in the alias file and done

Do read some documentation on Mailman... There's a setp-by-step installation
manual and some howto's and faq's on the site.
