Did you in fact create user mailman? It's complaining it doesn't exist.

If you've created it, it may be that mailman and/or python needs to be made
netinfo aware. But I kjnow others have gotten mailman running fine under
MacOS x. it's something I've got on my plate for Real Soon Now (in fact,
talked ot my boss about that today....)
