Hey all,

    I am having a problem getting mailman to work with sendmail in regards
to the aliases.

Debian 2.2
Sendmail 8.9.3-23
Mailman 2.0.5

    I have compiled mailman using the correct mail-gid and cgi-gid for my
system.  I have setup the following aliases in the /etc/aliases file:

mbslug: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper post mbslug"
mbslug-admin: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner mbslug"
mbslug-request: "|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd mbslug"
mbslug-owner: mbslug-admin

    And I have run newaliases, however I am still receiving the following
when trying to confirm subscriptions. (I'm using OE because I'm currently at
work so please don't flame me.)  Any assitance would be appreciated.
