I've setup a new list, added aliases to sendmail but keep
getting the error:

   ----- The following addresses had permanent fatal errors
"|/chroot/home/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd liberal"
    (reason: 1)
    (expanded from:
<liberal-request at skjoldebrand.dyndns.org>)

   ----- Transcript of session follows -----
Mailman error: mailcmd got bad listname: liberal
554 5.3.0 unknown mailer error 1

When replying to the confirmation email from Mailman. 
What to do?

I think I read something about the being an "infamous"
problem but I can't find it in the archives. Anyone who can
point me to the relevant solution?

This is on Mailman 2.0.8 and RH 7.1. 
Will it be possible to do searches on Mailman 2.1 archives?

mvh/ Regards,
