Hello everyone.

Setup mailman on Mac OS X Server with sendmail setup to be used with

Sendmail seems to be working, I get all cron job messages emailed to me,

Mailman setup seemed to go OK. Had some issues with permissions, check_perms
-f when logged in as root cleared these up.

Here is the error: 

Cron <mailman at ussu1> /sw/bin/python -S /usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 222, in ?
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 203, in main
  File "/usr/local/mailman/cron/gate_news", line 140, in process_lists
    mlist = MailList.MailList(listname, lock=0)

  File "/usr/local/mailman/Mailman/MailList.py", line 869, in __load
    fp = open(dbfile)
IOError: [Errno 13] Permission denied:

I also have another issue with email not being sent out with Sendmail, error
messages in the mailman smtp logs are:

Jan 20 08:50:56 2002 (6045) All recipients refused: (-1, 'strap_look_up()
failed (ipc/send) invalid destination port')

Any pointers? I am still on the upslope of a steep learning curve here...
