    Looks like you have two different things going on here...

    This means mailman doesn't have permissions to write in that directory.  Are
you sure /home/mailman (and everything under that) is actually owned by mailman,
and that the crontab running is also owned by mailman?

    This means your mailman is configured to run with GID 12, however your
system seems to be feeding stuff to sendmail with GID 2 - you need to
reconfigure mailman to accept GID 2.
