Found some more info - seems to be getting an error from the EPIPE
command - any ideas?

Only logfile that exists in the mailman directory is smtp - with nothing
useful in it. Have checked the GID and UID's - both set to exim as per
the setup instructions for mailman on an exim mail server.

Any idea's how I can get more informative logging? Or what an exit code
2 indicates? I'm sure if I knew what it meant I'd be able to fix it...

Check the logfiles. Then post the Relevant sections to the list.

BTW it means the mailman wrapper process is returning code 2 rather than
code 0 (success). I'm guessing you didnt set up the daemon UID correctly
when you configured mailman.
