Ok, I've done some work...

The mailman does send out confirmations of subscribing to the list.  It just doesn't send out the mail messages.

It is listening.  It archives all messages sent to the list!  It just won't send them back out.  I have tried to alter senmail's relaying by adding the domains of the subscribers, etc. but to no avail.  (Yes I did restart sendmail.)

I have minimal rules now to try and get this to work.

I have no files in ~mailman/logs/ directory.

Sorry, I was (and am) a bit frazzled as to why this is not working.  It is Red Hat 7.3.
