mailman is version 2.0.6
exim is version 3.33
python is 1.5.2
OS is Linux 6.2

mailman was configured:

./configure --prefix=/serve/web105/mailman --with-groupname=exim
--with-cgi-gid=nobody --with-username=exim

here's /serve/web105/mailman/mail/wrapper:

-rwxr-sr-x    1 root     exim        31447 Oct  3 10:59 /serve/web105/mailman/mail/wrapper*


-rwsr-xr-x    1 root     mail       508344 Aug 28 12:43 /usr/local/bin/exim*
which runs as user 'exim'.

and here are a few exim configure excerpts:


           driver = pipe
           command = MAILMAN2_WRAP post ${lc:$local_part}
           user = MAILMAN_UID
           group = MAILMAN_GID

           driver = pipe
           command = MAILMAN2_WRAP mailcmd ${lc:$local_part}
           user = MAILMAN_UID
           group = MAILMAN_GID

           driver = pipe
           command = MAILMAN2_WRAP mailowner ${lc:$local_part}
           user = MAILMAN_UID
           group = MAILMAN_GID
