[Mailman-Users] GID

Here's somethings I did...
1)  Do the install --with-mail-gid=12.
2)  make a link to /home/mailman/mail/wrapper  in the /usr/adm/sm.bin directory.  (at least that's where it was on mine).  If a wrapper link exists, change the name of this one to something else.
3)  Take the /home/mailman/mail info directory specifier out of the aliases file. Make the wrapper call match whatever the link in 2 is.  No directory qualifier.
4)  Run New Aliases.

After doing that...  it finally did start working for me...

  I guess this question has been asked a lot, but I've tried all the
  possible solutions I could find in the archive and none of them fixed my
  problem. Every time the wrapper gets invoked from sendmail, it returns
  this to the maillog:

  Sep 13 01:31:36 dell sendmail[24530]: f8CNVaJ24530: from=<***@***>,
  size=1636, class=0, nrcpts=1,
  msgid=<005d01c13be3$31a49850$0500000a at voyager>, proto=ESMTP, daemon=MTA,
  relay=pop3.***.be []
  Sep 13 01:31:37 dell sendmail[24531]: f8CNVaJ24530:
  to="|/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system",
  ctladdr=<nip-system-admin@***.***> (8/0), delay=00:00:01,
  xdelay=00:00:01, mailer=prog, pri=30977, dsn=2.0.0, stat=Sent

  So far, everything is okay. But, the mail never arrived. So I thought,
  let's run "/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system" manually:

  $ /home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system
  Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 1012.  (Reconfigure to
  take 1012?)

  Now I'm in doubt... I do a "make clean" and then I configure with:
  - --with-mail-gid
  - --with-cgi-gid


  I've reconfigured about 20 times now and I already got it to see "gid
  1012" (which is the group of the actual wrapper), but now I'm a bit
  affraid to have to start all over again (and I really mean: 'again').

  So, what do I do next?

  I'm logged in as the mailman user on a Red Hat Linux system with
  Sendmail as MTA (shame on me).
