you can try to recompile with this command.

./configure --prefix=/your/mailmandir  --with-mail-gid=mail --with-cgi-gid=n

use nobody if your webserver run under that id.

I have installed mailman, version 2.0, in the workstation alpha Digital
with S.O. UNIX V4.0F  (Rev. 1229).
After the compilation I have run the file "check_perms". The output is:
"No problem Found".
Subsequently I have run the file "newlist test". I have edited the file
/var/adm/aliases and I have inserted these lines:

## test mailing list
## created: 12-Mar-2001 mailman
test:                    "|/usr/users/mailman/mail/wrapper post test"
test-admin:              "|/usr/users/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner
test-request:            "|/usr/users/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd test"

test-owner:              test-admin

When any users subscribe the mailing list named "test", they receive the
confirmation mail.
Subsequently these users receive this mail:

Could you help me ?
Thank you.
