[Mailman-Users] having trouble with using Mailman

I can now actually get to the listinfo.html located at:
http://mailman.datatechie.com/virus-warnings/listinfo.html but it does not 
allowed me to eveter any info or change any options.

I also have fixed the problem with getting the error when running the 
newaliases command. I am no longer getting the error that the hostname is 
not qualified.

I am still having trouble sending any emails to the address: 
virus-warnings at datatechie.com. The message comes back to me with the 
following errors in the headers:
