[Mailman-Users] GID

Try the following

Login as root
execute su - mail

Then try $ /home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner nip-system

You will see everything is ok.. So the gid for mail is 12 and that is the
gid expected.
At least with this you will be sure it´s not an instalation issue
I have the same problem and i am working in it since a week ago.

Also try the following : Take the source code of any message sended to your
list (those who never arrived) , and put it in a text file, let´s say

Then execute :  $ /home/mailman/mail/wrapper post your-list < message.

Please tell me what happens. When i make this, the message is spreaded ok.
But when i send a message throw normal operation (a mail client) the mail
never arrives.

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
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).
