This is my first attempt at setting up a mailing list manager, so I
downloaded mailman-2.0.5-1.i386.rpm off of rpmfind.net and followed these
instructions that were posted there :
* run /usr/lib/mailman/bin/mmsitepass to create the mailman administrator
* edit /usr/lib/mailman/Mailman/mm_cfg.py to customize mailman's
configuration for your site
* set "DAEMON=yes" in /etc/sysconfig/sendmail to configure sendmail, and
* add these lines:
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail/ /var/mailman/archives/public/
to /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf to configure your web server.
I then added crontab.in 's contents to mailman's crontab
and added these aliases to /etc/aliases :
mailman: myemail at myemail.com
and ran 'newaliases'
Then I created the site password using 'mmsitepass' and created a new list
'test' using 'newlist', entered the proper info
Then I added these aliases to /etc/aliases :
test: "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
test-admin: "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner test"
test-request: "/usr/lib/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test"
So after doing all of that , nothing happens ! I don't get an e-mail, and
the only clue I've found is the following error from ( /var/mailman/post ):
Jun 30 02:56:52 2001 (11522) post to test from mailman-owner at ourserver.com,
size=1329, 1 failures
I checked the log files, cron is running everything set for mailman without
But strange enough, there isn't anything in maillog for mailman ?!
PLEASE HELP !!
We're running RedHat 6.1 kernel 2.2.16-3 sendmail-8.9.3-15
Thanks in advance,
