ditto.  I've tried it both with admin intervention required for subscribe
and without.  The Mailman subscribe log shows "pending", the last thing
I find in any other logs I know of says that the confirmation message
was received.  Someone suggested I double-check the /etc/aliases file,
and I did that; looks reasonable from what I've seen posted, here.
Don't know what other places to check.

Using the bin/whatever programs works or at least the ones I do that
way show up in the web page.

The intention is for this to be run in "news-letter" fashion, where
only the admin can post.

Mac OS X   10.1
Mailman    2.0.7
sendmail   8.10.2
