Yip - I checked the perms - all fine there.

I'm running it in a chrooted environment - I get the error message:

    ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors -----
"|/var/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner neurons"
    (reason: 2)
    (expanded from: <neurons-admin at neurosemantics.com>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Failure to exec script. WANTED gid 12, GOT gid 516.  (Reconfigure to take
554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 2

How do I reconfigure Mailman to take 516 then as the gid?
