[Mailman-Users] email interface problem

I've gotten most things to work with mailman-2.0.5
on Solaris 2.6 using postfix MTA.  List creation,
message submission, as well as the web interface
to user additions, all seem to work fine.

But I can't get the email interface to work.
For example, if I send 'Subject: help' message to test-request,
I get back just a blank message, ~mailman/logs/error file stays empty,
and I can find no hints in /var/logs/mail.  Same thing
with 'Subject: subscribe' messages to test-request.

How do I turn up the logging verbosity?
I suppose I missed something in the INSTALL or FAQ,
but danged if I can figure out what!
Can anyone help point me in the right direction?



---- here's what I get from my 'Subject: help' message to
     test-request and the pertinent lines from the /var/mail/log.
