You don't mention which MTA you're using.  With Postfix, if aliases.db 
doesn't exist then you'll get the same symptoms (for example on the 
first list of a new install).  "su - mailman" and run 
"/usr/sbin/postalias aliases" and your problem will likely disappear. 
If aliases.db does already exist, make sure the ownership and 
permissions are correct.   I don't know if a similar fix would work for 
sendmail, and I know nothing about qmail or exim.

Espero que le ayude,

A cat knows it's master.
