Hi Phil,

Yes I am sure I did this. I even checked that cron was set up after, I will

Did you set up the crontab ?
I suggest that you try :

<python home>/bin//python -S /home/mailman/cron/qrunner

(I had the same problem when I tried mailman at the first time ... and
 forgot to set up the crons for mailman user)
