Hello all,

I've used Mailman with sendmail and qmail, but Courier has me
stumped. (This is my first time using it.) I asked about this
on the courier-users list and got no response. :( So, I'm
asking here now.

Anyhow... Mailman installed just fine. I can use the web 
interface to request to join a list. However, when I reply
to confirm it fails. 

I get messages like this in my maillog:

My aliases, in courier/etc/system are: 

foobar: | /home/mailman/mailman/mail/wrapper post foobar
foobar-request: | /home/mailman/mailman/mail/wrapper mailcmd foobar
foobar-admin: | /home/mailman/mailman/mail/wrapper mailowner foobar
foobar-owner: foobar-admin

How do I tell courier that UID 520 (which the mailman user) is 
okay to run a script as? 
Or is something else wrong/misconfigured?
